Gregor Craigie

Gregor Craigie (CBC)

Gregor Craigie has hosted On The Island since 2007. Before that he worked as a radio reporter in the Kootenays, a producer on The Current and a TV legislative reporter. 

Before that Gregor worked in London at the BBC World Service for three years and still has fond memories of drinking "bog standard" tea to stay awake on the late-night shift. 

Gregor now wakes up every weekday morning with a strong cup of coffee to host Victoria's most popular radio program. 

For rest and relaxation, he rides his bike and runs after his three young sons.
