Don Saxon returned to Saskatchewan from Ontario in 2012, after two decades on Toronto’s airwaves. In addition to anchoring the morning drive shift, he is also co-host of the News Talk 980 CJME Morning show. While the middle of the night wake-up can sometimes take its toll, Saxon loves his job. He says, “When people wake up in the morning, the first thing most want to find out is if their world is safe. I get to answer that question. Then, we bring people up to speed on everything they need to know to carry on a conversation at work about current events.” When not at work, he enjoys golf, fishing traveling and hanging out in the backyard with family and friends.
Born and raised in Regina, Sam Maciag has been a news junkie since she was a kid. Her pursuit of news started in high school where she was the editor-in-chief of Michael A. Riffel High School's newspaper. She went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts in English and Religious Studies at the University of Regina in 2008 -- the same year she became a copy editor for the U of R newspaper The Carillon and working as a technical producer for News Talk. Her interest in news took her back to the U of R where she finished another degree, a Bachelor of Journalism, in 2010. Sam has worked as a print reporter, radio reporter, photographer, web editor, technical producer, show producer and now, morning show host. When she's not working, Sam is either traveling, reading a book or training as a strongwoman athlete. You may also find her dancing in her car while she's driving, but she'd deny that.
Warren ‘Woodsy’ Woods has spent over 40 years in broadcasting. He started out as a Top 40 radio DJ before moving on to TV sports. After nearly 26 years at Global Television, Woodsy moved to Rawlco Radio, where he serves as the CJME morning sports announcer as well as a contributor to the Green Zone. After so many years in sports broadcasting he has had the chance to cover events from Grey Cup games and briers to World Curling Championships and World Junior Hockey championships. Woodsy likes to golf in the summer and curl in the winter (though he’s not very good at either). He also tries to travel to the Okanagan as often as possible to see his two grandkids to spoil them rotten.
