Alan Johnson is one of our part-time news announcers. “A-J”, as he is known among family and friends, considers the other staff at East Coast FM and Classic Rock 97.9 to be his “broadcast family.” That’s important, because A-J has been on the air for more than 30 years in
radio and television. His radio roots cover stations in Halifax, Toronto,
Bridgewater, Truro and Fredericton, while his television career saw
him excel as the Bureau Chief for Eastern Quebec at Global TV in Montreal, and as a legislative reporter for both CTV and Global in the Maritimes and Quebec. As a former radio talk show host, AJ is rarely at a loss for words when he’s near a microphone.
