Dave Wheeler Radios Without a Safety Net

About the Episode

Dave Wheeler is the morning host at 92 CITI-FM in Winnipeg. Along with Rena Jae and recent addition Dave Turnbull, they continue to be one of Winnipeg’s top morning shows. I had the opportunity to work with Dave from 2006 to 2012 and really loved how he would create without a safety net: Not stopping the creative process to water down or negate an idea. Great ideas are refined and shared with the end game of making the listener laugh. I was invited out to Dave’s newly built Safety Net Studios to catch up on life and talk about his accomplishments to date. We didn’t hold back discussing the parts of his career that wound up making news. Notably his departure from Power 97, his former co-host Phil Aubrey’s recent departure back to Power 97, and the online video incident from April 2016 – which led to the creation of Safety Net Studios. Yes this is a long podcast but there was a lot of catching up to do.

This episode is made possible from NLogic.
