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

In addition to co-hosting Now or Never, Trevor makes rush hour fun as the traffic reporter on Information Radio 89.3FM/990AM, CBC Manitoba's flagship #1 morning show. And when he's not guiding drivers through stalls and collisions, he's bringing the laughs on Twitter and settling into a fun new chapter in life as Dad to baby Jack. Prior to joining CBC, Trevor worked at CityTV Winnipeg and hosted a style/fashion web series (obviously given his - self-described - glorious hair).

About the show's theme music

Matt Schellenberg is a Winnipeg musician, storyteller and Spiderman-bedsheet-owner who composed the theme music for Now or Never. He also sings and plays keyboards in the indie-pop band Royal Canoe.
