Brent Bambury has always had a deep connection to radio and was still a teenager when he launched his career at CBC working in Saint John, Halifax and Montreal.
When CBC Radio 2 launched the all-night underground music show Brave New Waves in 1984, Bambury worked on the show as a correspondent and was named the show's permanent host a year later. He spent the remainder of the '80s and half of the '90s staying up late sharing his love for obscure and emerging music.
In the early 1990s, Bambury worked as an entertainment reporter for CBC's Television's Midday and made the move to co-host Midday with Tina Srebotnjak from 1995-2000. In 2000 he helped Kai Black and David Carroll re-invent the game show genre with their highly successful Radio One show, Off the Cuff.
In 2002, he moved to Ottawa to host CBC's top-rated afternoon show All in a Day and also helped design and;host the national music quiz show GrooveShinny, even making up the show's goofy name. In 2008, he returned to television to co-host Test the Nation with Wendy Mesley, bringing huge audiences to CBC-TV and rejuvenating the idea of live TV broadcast.
In this period of compulsive creativity, Bambury helped invent the Saturday morning playhouse GO!. For eight years GO! was broadcast live across the country, redefining the limits of live radio and making kids out of all listeners of all ages.
