There is nothing more attractive than a good laugh and a warm smile.
Good morning! My name is Alexander Pater, and I’m absolutely delighted to wake you up and get your day started.
I spent two years working in the bustling film and TV industry in Toronto. I met a whole bunch of cool people, and even got this nifty photo taken! Waaaaaaw, neat eh? Look at that…
Anyway! After that, I got into radio. Despite earning a college degree in turning on a microphone… I still occasionally forget to turn on my microphone!
My hobbies include driving race cars, skiing, snowboarding, camping and living life to the absolute fullest.
So join me, early in the morning on KIX FM! We’ll drink coffee, chat and catch up on this wonderful world around us.
