Hello and thanks for visiting! I’m Brittany King (dot com) Had to! I’m a radio announcer, freelance voice-over artist and lover of all things adventure.
I go to “work” everyday doing what I love: talking to people, sharing stories and current events and singing off-tune. This industry has hashtag blessed me with incredible experiences and I’ve loved spending the last 13 years on the radio. Or, “in the radio”, as my 94-year-old Italian grandma (Nonna) says.
In 2011, I was a media rider for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, raising over $100, 000 for pediatric cancer research and support programs. The following year I was honoured with the Young Broadcaster of the Year Award at Canadian Music Week. In 2013, I was selected as a Bell Media representative for a trip to the Philippines with World Vision Canada. Our television/radio campaign goal was to secure the sponsorship of 1500 children (3000 wound up getting sponsored through individuals and families from Vancouver Island!)
Besides work, riding my Harley keeps my heart beating and my adrenaline pumping. Last summer I rode my motorcycle from Victoria, BC to St. John’s, NFLD to celebrate and promote Canada’s 150th birthday and also to connect riders from coast to coast. I stayed with strangers along the way – fellow bikers I connected with (mostly) on Instagram. It was the most incredible adventure; all my “strangers” were awesome and our country is stunning.
I’m currently taking suggestions on my next road trip – have any recommendations? And of course, if you ever find yourself on two wheels on the westcoast, get in touch and I’ll be your local tour guide!
