The History of Nikky, Our-now-13-yr-old Reporter“A while back, my mom submitted a “Horse of the week” story about Dakota and they liked it so much they asked me to be a guest on the show…. That was so much fun, that Kim asked me if I would like to start a regular segment on the show. And I started in January.” -- as published in the Rider 2008, “Foal Reporter Nikky Grobbo Hears Hoofbeats” by Kelly Bower insert stats of The Rider per contra ad script

The History of Hilary
, Print JournalistIn her column “Horse Tales” for the Fergus-Elora News Express, she wrote the article “Local 13 year old hosts weekly radio show segment.*” featuring Nikky’s recurring breed report column. Reportedly, the reporter gushed to her younger mentor, “You are doing my dream. Radio.” Heather, the teen’s mom interupted “uh, have you tried talking to Kim?”. The 13 year old reporter Nikky Grobbo suggested she drop off a copy of the newspaper to CFRU, where Kim Logue was acting as Spoken Word Coordinator for CFRU. She was recruited! (May 14, 2008, Vol 15, Issue 20. Serving the Centre Wellington Area for Over 150 yrs.)

The History of Horsica, Jessica Miller MuchMusic Staff/ Trained BroadcasterJessica came on board right away, and taught us how to make good radio, just from the reports she sent in. First she would talk into her cell phone and e-mail it somehow, and eventually she had her husband doing a voice over on a catchy music bed intro for detailed, educational reports sent through sendspace, that we still replay and learn from.

The History of the Handsome Cowboy Co-hostMark Grice brings a valued Western and Quarter Horse flare to our program, and his booming natural voice and bantering rhythm are appreciated by fans and listeners right across North America. “Everyone I meet now in the Campus radio world remembers hearing about our show from Mark first, at the NCRA conference."

The Kelly's, Dallas, Marianne and ClaireRecently we have not heard enough of the voice of Kelly Kay, Our Equine Events Listings Reporter and/or Kelly M, who brings us Standardbred Showcase, during the racing season. We are hoping to hear T-Track news soon as well as other entertaining interviews.
