David Kirton

David Kirton is a lifetime resident of Saskatoon – he grew up on the west side – and is passionate about the city he loves and the people in it.

In Saskatoon, if he is not walking the news hounds, Owen and Phil, on the radio with News Talk 650 CKOM, or practicing archery, he is volunteering in the community as a trustee with Saskatoon native Ministry and Sisters Voices; two ecumenical organizations working to enlighten non-indigenous people about indigenous issues and successes. 

David loves the news, but that not all he watches. Currently he is a bit obsessed with Homeland and the Walking Dead. He is the proud grandfather of a couple of grandkids – who get mentioned on the show from time to time. David is Michif.
