About the Host


Loren McGinnis is one the Northwest Territories' early risers.

He has learned to love the words, "Good morning!", but it wasn't always that way.

He has worked as a CBC North reporter and videojournalist, a statement gatherer with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and as an orange juice squeezer at a health food store (he was 13).

Now Loren spends his time outside of work hanging out with his young son, his wife and his dog Murray. 

If there's anytime left over he can be found refereeing hockey or telling jokes as a (very amateur) standup comedian.

Loren's favourite medium is radio, but you can also connect with him on twitter: @lorenmcginnis and on facebook he's part of the team posting to
