News Director / Chief Reporter
After a 13-year hiatus, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to come back to the Peace Region. My name is Kenny Trenton and I previously worked here in the newsroom from 2005-06. In between, my radio journey took me to: Northeastern Saskatchewan, Northeastern Alberta, Montreal, and a few different places in Ontario. I also spent some time selling houses in Ottawa but my passion is journalism. My travels have shown me that the Peace Region is the perfect place to work and play and I am hyped to be back.

As news director, I want to bring you all the latest stories that affect our daily lives. If you have a news tip, or a story idea you want to share, I would love to hear from you. Some of the greatest stories have come from sitting down with people over coffee and just chatting. So if you have an idea, or want to go for a coffee and chat, you can reach me at 624-1088 or

I’m Kyle Moore. I’m the guy doing the news every weekday morning. Born and raised in the town of Strathmore, AB, I’ve moved around a bit over the years. Went to college in Lethbridge, worked in Dauphin, MB, Bonnyville-Cold Lake, AB and now I’m here in Peace River.

My biggest passion is covering sports and doing hockey play-by-play (and yes I wear a lot of Calgary Flames and Calgary Stampeders gear even though Northern Alberta is sort of enemy territory.)

I’m also big into classic video games. The Sonic the Hedgehog series is a big favourite of mine, but I also play a bit of Pokemon, Mario and Metal Gear Solid.

I like to consider myself as someone who’s easy to make friends with, and I look forward to making a lot of new ones here in Peace River.

My name’s Ridley Reiser! I’m doing the afternoon news from Wednesdays to Sundays.

I was raised in Okotoks for most of my teenage years, but I was born back in New York.
I was born a city kid, but I loved living out on an acreage lots more than living in a suburban neighborhood. People’ve called me more American than Canadian, despite the fact that I’ve lived in both countries for just as long. I guess I just never got the Canadian accent? Then again, people also tell me I sound like a twelve year old boy, so I don’t really know what to believe. I think it makes me sound unique.
I love to draw, write, play video games, and go on the internet.

I’m skilled with computers; first time I ever turned one on was when I was two years old. I remember when I was maybe 5, my aunt wanted me off her computer and she figured, since I’d only ever used laptops, that I wouldn’t be able to figure out how a PC tower worked. She was a little annoyed when she saw I was back on her computer right after she’d told me to get off it.

Some stuff I like is surreal horror, cartoons, cats, saying strange things that don’t make sense, and internet culture in general. I was secondhandedly raised by the internet, for better or for worse.
That’s the basics of what you need to know about me! I’m glad to be part of the Peace River community.
