About The Brent Loucks Show
Saskatoon is waking up with Brent Loucks and the CKOM morning team! Each weekday between 6:00 and 8:30 a.m., Brent starts the day of many in Saskatoon with his upbeat and bright attitude.
Brent is joined by Gerald Bauman, who brings you the morning’s biggest news stories. Wray Morrison also stops in at :25 and :55 past the hour to fill you in on the stories and scores from sports. John Gormley also stops in to talk about the news of the day.
Brent’s listeners have come to expect he’ll ask the Impossible Question each day at 6:45 a.m. Later, at 7:45 a.m., the Three Wisemen —Wray Morrison, John Gormley and Brent —give their humorous take on the most prominent stories of the day down to the most trivial. Everyone needs to know the forecast when they start their day, so expect weather on the ones.
Each Tuesday, Saskatoon Mayor Don Atchison talks with Brent about our city.
Brent’s impact on the lives of Saskatoon residents doesn’t just happen during his show. Every year, Brent has participated in Brent and Penney’s Adopt A Family Campaign, named after Brent and Penney Murphy who spearheaded the project in 1988. The campaign brings businesses, communities, families and individuals together to help less fortunate families in the Saskatoon area. The idea is to “adopt a family” by purchasing food for a Christmas dinner as well as toys for the children to open on Christmas morning.
