Scott Turnbull

Scott Turnbull - CKSO AM FM CIGMScott Turnbull is the name behind a friendly, likeable, and personable, host who has worked various radio formats, every time slot, and on a number of radio stations since the mid 1970's.

Scott was heard on the CKSO AM airwaves from 1976 to the early 1980's.  Before Sudbury, Scott was on AM radio in Dryden and then Leamington, near Windsor.  After Sudbury, Scott headed to North Bay and eventually Thunder Bay.

By 1988 Turnbull was in Sault Ste. Marie and although he thought he'd only be in the city for a short while, remained there until the year 2018!  Scott and his wife call the Sault their home.  He was the morning host on EZ Rock 100.5 FM.  He remained with the station after it was later rebranded to be known as KiSS 100.5.  Scott had previously worked afternoons on Q104.3.

Scott Turnbull was also host of Solid Gold Saturday Night heard on various Rogers' FM stations in Ontario including Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury and North Bay.  The program featured hits from the 1960's and 70's.

Scott Turnbull is a sports enthusiast to say the least!  Hockey is his greatest passion.  He served as colour commentator for the Soo Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League for ten years, retiring from that position at the end of 2005.  He is a huge fan of football and of the Detroit Tigers ball team.

On Friday, June 18, 2018 Rogers Media announced that Scott Turnbull would be retiring from KiSS 100.5.  Serious heart surgery meant taking a leave of absence since November of 2017.  Turnbull had paid a visit to the station in April to say hello to KiSS listeners and to thank those who had been supportive during his time in hospital and during recovery.  Scott returned on Friday, August 10th to bid his audience a proper farewell.  He was honoured by industry friends, co-workers  and the people of Sault Ste. Marie.  He had been in the business for some 43 years!

In addition to following his favourite sports teams, Scott promised himself he would spend time working on his golf game.  He likes to make sure the house is tidy and dinner is prepared by the time his wife Liz gets home every afternoon.  He became a proud grandfather for the first time on January 3rd of 2006 with the birth of Rowan!
