JD HUNTER has been a fan of the radio industry since he was 6 years old. When he discovered it through a Radio DJ toy, it became his life goal to become involved in the radio industry. After beginning with internet radio at 10 years old, he began learning how to run a show into his 20’s.
While JD began to work on his skills, he identified that a college education would help him get to where he wanted to be. The 2 years spent in SAIT’s radio program helped JD work through a speech impediment and gave him the capacity to work within any part of the radio industry. A move to Fort McMurray gave JD the opportunity to work every department from announcing to producing, writing to programming, he finally had a place to participate in his dream career.
When it felt time to move away, JD took a break from the industry to pursue other passions including Freelance work as a DJ, Writer, Speaker and Cinematographer through Alberta. It also saw him perform as the Stage Manager for a theatre in Central Alberta. Traveling & speaking on the topic of Mental Health has become an important part of the journey, and JD looks forward to sharing about everyday life with The WAV. Look forward to guests, banter & a place where you’re never alone with JD Hunter on The WAV.
