Jamieson has worked with CAB-K Broadcasting in Olds in 2007. In over 10 years in broadcasting, Jamieson has done it all — be it the newsroom, hosting shows or hustling advertising in the sales and marketing department. When he’s not at work, he’s spending his time with his wife Ashley and his two children, looking for a game of floor hockey or charity golf tournament and searching for used records.
Jeff comes from the small town of Morden, Manitoba, yet another Manitoban moving west to Alberta. He got his start in the radio industry at the tender age of 16 and since then has been an announcer, producer, news reporter, sports director and the voice of the MJHL’s Portage Terriers and Winkler Flyers.
