2017 AMBASSADORS & CO-HOSTS
Born and raised on a Laurentian farm, north of Montreal, Quebec, Kelly knew at the age of five that she wanted to be on the radio after hearing the legendary George Balcan on CJAD 800AM. Her first steps into the realm of media happened in college, when she was chosen to host her school’s morning show and she’s never looked back. Kelly has worked in many different facets of radio including being a talk show producer, a copywriter, a production engineer as well as behind the microphone on her favorite stations, CJAD 800AM and Virgin Radio Montreal. Kelly has also enjoyed jumping into the world of television, she's a regular contributor on CTV News Channel's Fame Factor and Culture Shock.
Away from the microphones and headsets, Kelly is a passionate martial arts instructor. A student of Yoseikan karate since the age of six (she is a fourth dan blackbelt), she continues to compete in various tournaments in and around Quebec while sharing and teaching her love of the art form to children and adults.
When it comes to enthusiasm, energy and passion for music, Jason Rockman is tough to beat. Having been a professional musician for almost 25 years, he has sold over 120 000 records worldwide and collaborated with rock roll hall of famers Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC) and Chuck D (Public Enemy). He has also shared the stage with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Our Lady Peace, Pantera, Korn, Motörhead , Queens of the Stone Age and countless others. It is fair to say that Jason has been there AND bought the t-shirt.
He is the lead singer of Slaves On Dope, and entertainment correspondent for CTV national news and spokesperson for both Montreal and Ottawa Comiccons, as well as Heavy Montréal music festival.
He brings his love of life, music, movies and pop culture to his audience 5 nights a week on AMPED with THE ROCKMAN on CHOM 97.7. He also the host and co-creator of TV's GEEK ME!
