Singer - Songwriter - Commentator
Bob Reid is a communications professional and broadcaster whose true love is music. A singer-songwriter, Bob's 2009 tribute to fallen soldiers "Highway of Heroes" reached #1 on the Canadian CD Singles chart and resulted in him being invited to perform for Canadian Forces and NATO troops at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan the following year. A follow-up single, "Soldier, Welcome Home" was released in conjunction with the end of Canada's combat mission in Afghanistan in 2011.
Bob's music-focused radio talk show, "In The Studio" (co-hosted by Blair Packham) airs on CJBK Newstalk 1290 in London and Newstalk 1010 in Toronto. He is also a regular Friday contributor to Global TV's Morning Show. Check Bob out at www.soldiersongs.ca
