Heya! My name’s Deanna and I am thrilled to spend my afternoons with you as the Afternoon Drive host on MOVE 97.1! Although I was born in raised in Vancouver, Penticton has always held a special place in my heart and I spent most of my summers growing up right here by the lakeside, cruising down the channel with family and friends. I’m so happy to finally call the Okanagan home!
When it comes to music…I grew up in a family of fanatics and around every genre you could imagine. My passion for radio started very early…we’re talking around 5 years old…when I used to pretend I worked at a radio station by recording my very own “show” on blank cassettes using a Fisher Price “boombox” in my grandmother’s living room. It’s so awesome to be living my childhood dream every day.
When it comes to music MOVE is the station that plays all of the classics I grew up listening to and loving, as well as all the new hits I am currently obsessed with. When I’m not on air – it’s STILL all about the music as I am also a singer-songwriter. I love performing…whether that means attempting to make you laugh on your drive home from work OR when I force my puppy Cleo to listen to me sing in my living room!
