2023 Family Wildlife & Awards Banquet 

Saturday, February 18th, 2023

Convention Center, Exhibition Grounds


Radio Personality and Comedian – Steve Shannon

Steve Shannon has been on the air broadcasting for 30 years in Saskatchewan. Steve has had the opportunity to meet and do things that the average person can’t do. From meeting country music stars to flying with the Snowbirds aerobatic team he has been inspired by the best with some very unique FIRST IMPRESSIONS. He was fortunate to have been chosen as the Venue Announcer for Curling at the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympic games. Steve has been a community volunteer for many years in the province and currently is the Chair of the Volunteer Board of Directors for Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation. For fun he loves to fish, golf run antique Steam engines (which afforded him a meeting with the Late John G. Diefenbaker), and speak as a motivator and after dinner speaker. Steve is on the air in Saskatoon at CJWW radio as the morning co-host and is also the company’s Public Service Manager.
