Episode 329: Dave Taylor


Dave Taylor is a journalist, broadcaster and former politician.


Dave began his career at radio stations in London and Ottawa, spending 10 years in Toronto at CHUM and CHUM-FM before coming west in 1985 as News Director at 107 KIK-FM (now Q107). His career in talk radio began in 1995 on CHQR, and over the next nine years his show became popular enough that he actually got elected as a Liberal (!) MLA in 2004 in Calgary-Currie — a constituency that had never elected a Liberal previously.


Dave was re-elected to his second term in 2008.


On April 12th, 2010, Dave left the Alberta Liberal Caucus to sit as an Independent. On January 24, 2011, Dave made history by becoming the first Alberta Party MLA in the Legislature. Deciding not to run for a third term in 2012, Dave returned to the airwaves 16 months after leaving office.
