About the show

As the work day comes to an end, Saskatoon is tuning into David Kirton and Saskatoon Afternoon. Each weekday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. the team makes the drive home interesting, giving people something to talk about combined, with the latest news, sports, traffic and weather.

Ashley Wills has news every 15 minutes, telling the stories that matter and impact you. Whether it’s happening in your community, province or from the other side of the planet, she’s ready with the headlines.

Justin Blackwell brings sports twice an hour. From local sports all the way to the majors he has it covered and will get you ready for the big game.

But you don’t just have to take their word for it. Twice a day, David is joined by people from throughout the community to discuss the topics of the day. Sometimes humourous and sometimes serious, the round table always brings another perspective.

David is a lifetime resident of Saskatoon and is passionate about the city he loves and the people in it.
