The 2018 Rosalie Award Winner is Maureen Holloway!

The 2018 recipient of the The Rosalie Award is Maureen Holloway, Radio Personality, CHFI FM

Maureen Holloway is a fan favourite on the Toronto radio scene. After longtime stints at CKFM/Mix 99.9, then Q107, she is now one half of Darren and Mo, the top rated morning show heard every day on landmark station 98.1 CHFI. Maureen is also familiar to listeners across the country as host of the popular entertainment feature The Last Word, now rebranded as Other’s People’s Business. Throughout her long and varied career on radio and television, Mo has received several honours, including a Gemini nomination for The Dish Show, the 2009 HOPE Award, and the Canadian Association of Broadcaster’s Gold Ribbon Award for Humour. Diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer in 2005, she is an outspoken advocate for women’s health issues, and is in frequent demand as a lecturer and keynote speaker, where her topics encompass women, humour and wellness. She is also cancer free. Maureen lives in Toronto’s west end with her husband John, her sons Aidan and Ronan, and her dogs Asta and Dewey. She plays golf and piano, both rather badly, and loves to cook, travel, laugh and drink wine, sometimes all at once.

Congratulations, Maureen!

The Rosalie Award is named in honour of Rosalie Trombley, renowned Music Director at Windsor-Detroit Top 40 powerhouse CKLW-AM “The Big 8”, and the first-ever recipient of the Rosalie Award in 2005. The award recognizes Canadian women who have blazed new trails in radio.
