Al Stafford may have been born in Toronto, but after living in Alberta for 35 years, we think he fits right in here in the west. And news, sports and music have been a big part of his life since he arrived.
The former talk show host has covered everything from natural disasters like the Black Friday tornado in 1987 to the NHL, CFL and countless elections. He's the arena voice of the Edmonton Oilers, and worked 69 games in the NHL Western Hub, helping the league succeed in its plan to complete the 2019-20 season. He spent 20 years calling CFL games in Commonwealth Stadium, including three Grey Cups.
Al is also passionate about music and has played in numerous bands throughout his adult life. He currently plays guitar, saxophone and sings in the rock and country cover band Radio Tragedy.
