Eric began his career in his hometown of Montreal Canada in the late ‘60’s. Over the next few decades he worked throughout Canada with stops in Sudbury Ontario, Ottawa, Canada’s Capitol and then Toronto. Canada’s largest City. Eric’s first foray into the U.S. market was a job in Miami in the early “80’s. That taste of year round warmth and sunshine would not go unnoticed. Then it was back to Toronto for a couple of years and then back to where it all began in Montreal. Eric made the move to Central Florida in 1996 and has been on the air in Brevard County since then.
When he wasn’t working in radio, Eric has been a musician, record promo-man, actor and free-lance voice-over artist for clients like Budweiser, Chrysler and McDonald’s.
