Our Broadcasting for Web, Radio & Television Department at VanArts is very pleased to welcome Martin Strong to our faculty! 

Martin is a media veteran who has spent more than 20 years on Vancouver radio, including stints on CBC Radio, CFOX and 11 years in the mornings at Rock 101. Martin is also a voice actor with countless radio and TV commercials to his credit. He can currently be heard as the narrator on the TV reality series JADE FEVER now airing on The Discovery Channel.

Martin launched his career at CFOX radio in the mid 1980‘s during the heyday of rock radio. In ‘96 he was lured to Rock 101, where he was soon teamed up with Brother Jake Edwards in the afternoon drive slot. The impact was immediate, which led Jake and Marty into the mornings where they dominated the market from 1999 until Marty’s departure in January 2011. Demonstrating his creative writing and storytelling skills, Martin also moonlighted on CBC Radio where he created, wrote and hosted “Radio Shangri-La,” a program which was broadcast nationally on both AM and FM in various time slots between 1995 and 2000.

You can meet Martin and the rest of our Broadcasting faculty at our upcoming BROADCASTING TASTER CLASS on April 28th. Read more and register here. >>
