Ramraajh Sharvendiran

Ramraajh Sharvendiran is the host of Ontario Morning. Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, and grew up glued to his radio as both an accessible way to consume music, and to learn about a world outside his own. 

While studying communications at York University, he joined the community radio station CHRY 105.5 FM, hosting and producing Queer Currents - a weekly queer and trans-focused program - for nearly a decade. He then moved on to help launch CJRU 1280 AM by building and hosting a daily morning show called Morning Mixtape.

In the midst of feeding his passion for radio, he had a 5-year stint in public health before joining CBC Toronto as an intern in 2017. After building his skills as an Associate Producer in Toronto, Ramraajh moved to Northern Manitoba in 2018 to host and produce CBC’s daily morning show, North Country, out of a single-operator bureau in Thompson, Manitoba.

After a couple of years in the north, he eventually made his way to Newfoundand and Labrador where he became the co-host of the St. John’s Morning Show.

In recent years, beyond his regular hosting duties, Ramraajh has made inclusion a priority by contributing to initiatives such as the current JSP review and the Atlantic Sourcing and Recruitment Project. His work has also led to the development of the multiplatform series N.L. in Colour, which explores the lived experiences of BIPOC Newfoundlanders. Ramraajh returned to his home province joining the team at Ontario Morning in 2022 as their new host.
