Ebbott has programmed Bell Media CHR “Virgin Radio 99.9” CKFM for the past four years and also programmed Classic Hits “Boom 97.3” CHBM prior to its sale to Newcap last year. Prior to heading to Toronto Ebbott spent seven years as OM of Variety Hits “93.1 Jack-FM” KCBS-FM and has also programmed Hot AC “Mix 95.7” WMWX Philadelphia and Alternative “101.5 The Zone” KZON Phoenix.
