About the hosts

Ify Chiwetelu

Ify Chiwetelu
Host | Now or Never, CBC Radio One

This Nigerian-born, former Calgarian quit a job in the energy sector to pursue her creativity. In doing so, Ify charted her own path to form a career as a stand-up comic, improv performer, and comedy writer. She has written articles for CBC COMEDY and is a contributing writer for the upcoming Season 2 of CBC's hit television show, Baroness Von Sketch Show.

Trevor Dineen

Trevor Dineen
Host | CBC Radio One Now or Never
Traffic Reporter | CBC Radio One Information Radio

Trevor Dineen hosts Now or Never, heard nationally every Saturday and Thursday on CBC Radio One. Trevor is a well known Winnipeg-based radio personality who got his on-air start making traffic both interesting and entertaining on CBC Manitoba.

Trevor is inspired by being a part of people's moments and capturing them. Connecting with Canadians to help share their stories both great and small, and maybe sharing a laugh or two along the way. When not behind a microphone, Trevor is a father of two (three if you count his adorable chocolate lab Sophie) and the owner of a pear tree.
