Slim (born Wayne Reid on March 16th, 1973 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
started his career back in 1990 producing radio shows for the likes of Tom Rivers & Tarzan Dan. After being bitten by the radio bug Slim wanted more, so he branched out in search of his own radio gig. Taking on every on-air shift from weekends to overnights, Slim has made his climb to the top steady and focused.
There have been many highlights in Slim’s career but none can match the dream of being part of the very first Urban station in Canada, Flow 93.5. “I’ve always considered myself blessed to have co-hosted the afternoon drive at Flow…just being allowed in the building was good enough for me!”
After winning the UMAC award for best radio personality in 2001, Slim wanted to take on the ultimate radio challenge MORNINGS. So with a tearful goodbye to his home in the “Big Smoke” Slim packed his things and headed out west to Van City.
“The West Coast was good for me…not only for my career but for me personally as well.” Leaving the strength of his family and friends to embark on something so exciting yet so unsure taught Slim that no matter what obstacles are presented in one’s life if you truly want something, go after it.
Music is his life and nothing makes Slim happier than being able to share that same love of music with thousands of listeners every morning, “I am more pumped than ever and ready for anything. In the words of a GREAT late-night host…Let’s Get Busy!”
