SPEAKER(S) BIO

Mike Farwell

Mike is a Kitchener native who had the privilege of attending both Conestoga College and the University of Waterloo. Though he always thought he would be a teacher, Mike had a lifelong fascination with broadcasting and decided to give it a shot. Four months after graduating from Conestoga College, Mike was hired at a radio station in British Columbia, embarking on a cross-Canada journey that ultimately led him back to his hometown. Today, Mike hosts a daily talk show on CityNews 570 and is the play-by-play voice of the Kitchener Rangers.

Mike is an enthusiastic volunteer, having served on several boards and committees, including the Kitchener Public Library, Women’s Crisis Services, and REEP Green Solutions. Mike also co-chaired the volunteer team that helped shape the city of Kitchener’s first-ever Neighbourhood Strategy. In 2014, he began the Farwell4Hire fundraising campaign, which has raised more than $1-million for research to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Mike lives in Kitchener with his wife, stepdaughter, and two energetic dogs.
