Dave Charles is a global broadcast and creative media strategist with over four decades of radio, talent development, and new format creation in over 45 countries. After the success of launching Toronto’s now-iconic classic rock station Q107 with business partner John Parikhal in 1977, he formed one of Canada’s top consulting and research companies, Joint Communications Corp, consulting both mainstream radio groups and multinational music companies in Canada, U.S., U.K., Europe and Australia.

Dave will be doing a weekly stint at the Mediazoic studio, on behalf of his current company, Media Results International, and helping program and roll out an exciting new stable of stations and partners over the next few months. Even better, he'll be taking that classic radio voice of his, the one that voiced the spots since Day One of the Mediazoic Era, and bringing it into the studio booth to helm his own Mediazoic radio show, entitled "In My Room".


"The next wave for radio is Mediazoic." enthuses Dave Charles, "Internet radio offers much more variety and choice. Listeners want creative personalities that know their music. Thanks to Mediazoic, businesses around the globe can now be a part of this new media wave.”

"Dave and I joke around because it's as if our destinies are linked." says Mediazoic founder and CEO Greg Nisbet, "Listening to Q107 in its first year was the year I really discovered music, and so Dave's was one of the most important voices of my musical awakening. It somewhat blows my mind to consider that that voice is now going to be doing the same thing for Mediazoic listeners, hopefully among them young versions of me getting turned on to great music."

So if you like your rock and pop classic, but freed from format restrictions of traditional radio that tell you they can't put Norah Jones, Neville Brothers and The Doors on the same station, check out Dave Charles on mediazoic.com. With Dave Charles, it is all about the music.
