Ruby Carr from Z95.3 in Vancouver is the winner of the Allan Waters Young Broadcaster of the Year in memory of Steve Young. Runners up were Lauren Hunter 102.9 Sonic Edmonton, and Jax from Kiss 92.5 Toronto. Ruby's name came up briefly back in episode 74 where Dave Bannerman was talking about some of the great talent who had flowed through Nova Scotia Community College over the years. (Which also included Jax)
We talked about Ruby's love for performing and found out her brother is also in Vancouver and also in radio working at 99.3 CFOX, and acknowledges some sibling rivalry. I also got to geek out a bit and talk about the Bachelor Franchise and how Ruby grew to love the show because it's a dumpster fire.
