Staring Monday, April 5, listeners in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Halifax will wake up to The Morning Breeze with Brad & Deb. This daily morning radio show, hosted by Brad Dryden and Deb Smith, originates at 96.5 The Breeze (CKUL) in Halifax and will now be heard on 96.3 The Breeze (CKRA) in Edmonton and 104.3 The Breeze (CHLG) in Vancouver every morning from 6 to 10am local time.
Brad Dryden is a well-known Canadian broadcaster who has spent time behind the mic in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Halifax.

With their instant chemistry and kind rapport, Brad & Deb bring a relaxed and comfortable approach to morning radio. The show focuses on good news and positivity, and it is a perfect match for The Breeze brands across Canada.
The Morning Breeze with Brad & Deb reinvents the concept of a syndicated radio program, with content customized for each city covering community events and local elements. In addition, each city will have a reporter dedicated to covering traffic, weather, and breaking news. The Morning Breeze brings together the best national content segments with topical and timely customized local content.
“We are thrilled to bring The Morning Breeze with Brad & Deb to a broader audience,” said Dan Barton, Brand & Content Leader for Stingray’s Breeze branded stations. “They have a fantastic relationship with their listeners, and they are a perfect escape from the craziness of life today.”
