A product of Lethbridge College, Brooksie began his radio odyssey here in Lethbridge in 1985. With stops in Red Deer and Calgary, Brooksie returned to the Lethbridge airwaves in 2002 and since 2010 has been hosting the Country 95-5 Morning Show.
A jack of all trades he enjoys repairing/renovating things himself before Mrs. Brooksie has to call in the professionals. Camping with a beer by the fire is his favourite way to unwind. He does his best to be good to his kids (2 boys, 2 girls) because they’ll choose his home some day.

I’m originally from Vancouver and I’ve always known radio was the direction I was headed. It started when I learned how to talk, and then even more so when I learned how to record my voice into a tape recorder. 12 years in the biz and I love it more with every day that goes by!
Yellow is my favourite colour. I love yoga, meditation, and exploring. I love vanilla flavoured anything. I produce pop music in my spare time and I hope to be the next Madonna while being a Morning Show Host at Country 95-5. I’m sure we could make it work. I fire hoop in my yard, upload videos frequently doing air bands, eat organic unless it’s a fast food day, I’m learning to play the guitar, I make all my own shampoos, soaps and deodorant out of oils and lye from scratch (or I cheat and use Dr. Bronners premixed natural ingredient soap).
I love to dress up in costumes and sing karaoke (every day is Halloween in Gillian’s world). I’m beginning to think I may have a shopping addiction. I’m a poet, and currently am also writing a novel that I hope will inspire others.
