Mornings with Josh and Coop

Mornings with Josh and Coop on Pure Country


COOP has been in Sudbury since January, 2013!  He eventually became a weekend announcer on Pure Country (KICX) 91.7 in 2015, hosted the afternoon drive for a year, and has hosted Pure Country Mornings since February, 2017. 

Being a hockey fanatic, COOP has also been the voice of the Sudbury Wolves, travelling fulltime with the team doing play-by-play for 2 seasons, and he now calls home games on radio and local TV. 

Coop’s radio career began in North Bay (2010), when he was a Promotions Coordinator & Afternoon Drive Announcer at a country station there.  Coop is married to his wife, Sarah, and they have 3 children (& 1 cat)! 

5 fun Facts:

*Coop’s youngest daughter was born on his driveway (not planned that way)

*He has an obsession with ice cream

*He couldn’t grow a beard if his life depended on it

*Die hard Leafs fan

*3 fears: Bees, heights & open water 



Hey it's Josh!

I'm that mystical voice you hear as one half of PURE Country Mornings! I grew up in the GTA but quickly fell in love with Sudbury. I left the Nickel City for a short time to get some extra experience in radio but Sudbury was already in my veins by then so I just couldn't stay away! I love everything outdoors, all year round. From pond hockey and skiing in the winter to mountain bike riding and kayaking in the summer!

I am a bit of a foodie. It's not uncommon to see me drooling over burgers,steak, and all kinds of other delicacies! I grew up being called a human garbage disposal because there was no time for leftovers, there's deliciousness to take part in! One condition, keep the peanut butter away! I get more weird looks for the fact I don't like peanuts than anything else! 

I'm a dog guy so join me in hugging a puppy as you pull up your seat for PURE Country Mornings every weekday beginning at 5:30! See you there!
