Nadia Kidwai

Host of the Weekend Morning Show on CBC Radio One 89.3 FM / 990 AM in Winnipeg, Nadia Kidwai originally hails from Cardiff, Wales. Since arriving to Canada in 2004, Nadia affectionately thinks of the prairie city as home.

Prior to joining CBC Manitoba, Nadia was chair of the Manitoba Women’s Advisory Council, advising the Minister responsible for the Status of Women on issues affecting women and young girls across the province. In addition, she was a council member of Immigration Partnership Winnipeg and co-founded the Canadian Muslim Leadership Institute. 

Much of Nadia’s time in Winnipeg has been spent introducing communities to one another and breaking down barriers. She's worked in countless small group settings and hosted an endless string of large events. She is a passionate community builder, who is well-connected.

Nadia graduated from Oxford University with a B.A./M.A. in Politics and History. But most importantly, she is a single mother of two young boys and therefore, extremely well versed in all things Star Wars, Minecraft and other equally important cultural phenomena.
