Show Notes


September 19th, 2014

8:30 a.m.– The people of Scotland went to the polls yesterday to answer the question: Should Scotland be an independent country? The results have now been released. How will the outcome mean for the future of Scotland and the United Kingdom? Iain MacWhirter, columnist with the Sunday Herald Scotland.

9:00 a.m.– The Week’s Hottest Shows: Ultimate Open Session.

10:00 a.m.- The Week’s Hottest Shows continues.

10:05 a.m.- Yesterday on the show we talked to SGI about whether or not there would be a threshold over the speed limit at which photo radar tickets will be issued. They said it will be up to municipalities to determine. University of Illinois professor Ray Benekohal has done numerous studies on traffic systems and automated speed enforcement. He says a buffer zone is almost always in place with these devices and they are terrific for slowing people down, especially those who speed recklessly and put lives in danger. Rahim (Ray) Benekohal, professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois.

12:00 p.m.– Saskatchewan Roughrider Prognostications brought to you by Bathfitter.

About John Gormley Live

John Gormley Live has been a staple of News Talk Radio from its beginning. Each weekday morning between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., John Gormley Live is the place where Saskatchewan comes to talk.

John is a former Saskatchewan Member of Parliament and a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Law. The insight he brings to the stories that Saskatchewan is talking about has made him one of this province’s most influential people, a recognition he received from Saskatchewan Business Magazine. 

But John’s not all business. Each week, his callers fill the phone lines to provide their Rider Prognostications and to try to become Saskatchewan’s Smartest Radio Listener. Others want to vent during Bugs Day or hear John’s Heroes and Zeroes. They also get their chance to set the agenda of the John Gormley Live during the Ultimate Open Lines.

In addition to his radio show, John writes a popular weekly column for the StarPhoenix in Saskatoon and the Leader Post in Regina. As a speaker at conventions, John entertains the crowds on topics ranging from politics to pop culture. Meanwhile, at the University of Saskatchewan, political science students have benefited from his lectures.

John recently added author to his list of credentials as an authority on Saskatchewan interests. John’s book Left Out: Saskatchewan’s NDP and the Relentless Pursuit of Mediocrity is not just about provincial politics, but an attitude John says took hold in Saskatchewan for far too long.

As a radio host, listeners have to come to expect that John Gormley will provoke opinions while getting to the bottom of the story.
