Laila Yuile-CKNW Talk Show Idol Winner

You might find it ironic that someone who just won a talk show compeititon has nothing to say, but it’s true. Everyone is in bed, I am alone in peaceful silence and filled with profound happiness, gratitude and hope.

 Thank you, my friends, thank you.

Until tomorrow…..7:18am-Phillip Till interview.

Laila Yuile- CKNW Talk Show Idol Finalist!!!!!!

im000741.jpgCKNW commentator, Tom Jeffries anounced on-air today that I have officially secured a seat as one of the two finalists for the May 27th finals to be the first CKNW Talk Show Idol !!  I am honoured to have been in the company of  some incredibly talented and professional competitors,and congratulations to everyone for putting yourselves out there.If you haven’t been on radio, you can’t appreciate how hard it really is!!  Therefore, I’d  like to thank all of my guests again, for helping to create the shows that have gotten me this far; it couldnt have been done without you !!  Thank you , Tom Jeffries , for being such a great host,for  putting me at ease, andfor being a good sport , using some creative oral gymnastics in pronouncing my name….lol…I know introducing me has been a nightmare for him. And to the  judges, who volunteer their time on a Sunday, and have brought a wealth of knowledge to learn from, thank you for your advice, criticisms and praise-all have enabled me to deliver a better show each time.

no news is good news?

Havn’t heard a thing from the folks at CKNW, although the photo’s and bio’s were taken down late this afternoon. One can safely assume this means the voting is completed. I was hoping  we’d all hear today, but looks like we’ll have to wait until the next round on Sunday.  I’m going to have a  drink, and enjoy some barbeque in the sun… I’ll keep you posted, and you keep your fingers crossed……..

Dorian Netolicky on Till morning show

Woke up to the morning news on CKNW, ( just imagine waking up to Phillip Till)and heard a Talk Show Idol contestant( don’t know if he was eliminated)  giving a report on cruise ships as reporter for CKNW!! He is a BCIT broadcasting student, sounds great on-air, and previously interned for team 1040. I don’t know if you are interning or if you are now a member of the CKNW family, but congratulations!!!!
