About Halina

I began working in a small radio station in my home town of Kenora, Ont. while still in high school. It was at that point that I fell in love with radio and I have never looked back. After high school I spent one year at York University studying theatre, but the pull of radio proved to be too strong. The following year, I enrolled in the Ryerson University radio and television arts program, and after three years, received my Bachelor of Applied Arts (BAA). While pursuing a career in radio I have always kept a hand (or should I say a voice) in the Toronto freelance voice-over market and have voiced many commercials and narrations. I really enjoy what I do and often feel like the luckiest person in the world to be able to earn a living doing what I love. Currently, I live in Toronto with my daughter and my beloved dog. Thanks for looking me up! I look forward to chatting with you on the traffic line at *680. You can wake up with Halina each morning from 5-6am. She's also heard in traffic reports throughout the morning for 98.1 CHFI and Sportsnet 590 The Fan.
