GUEST HOST ON CBC OTTAWA MORNING SHOW

CBC Ottawa Morning

Tune into CBC Radio’s “Ottawa Morning” show this Friday, May 17, as Kathleen takes over hosting the airwaves for the special edition of Freaky Fridays

Make sure you set your dials to 91.5 FM to hear all the fun. Kathleen will be hosting between 7:30-8:30 a.m. in front of a live studio audience.

If you’re not familiar with Freaky Fridays – here’s a synopsis: This spring Robyn Bresnahan, host of Ottawa Morning, started changing places with various people in the city. It started with Reverend Bailey from Parkdale United Church. The following week she was Mayor for a day. Following that, a principal. Then the lead trumpet in the NAC Orchestra. In return for letting her spend a day in their lives, Robyn let all of them spend a Friday morning in her hosting chair.
