Terry Johnston

Terry has been waking Durham residents each weekday morning on CKDO since 1992, and emcees more than 100 charity events each year – including 30 charity golf tournaments. Sadly, his incredible fashion sense is often unnoticed. (Not everyone can pull off Loudmouth pants in front of huge crowds.)

Terry’s community service has been recognized with a Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal and Rotary Club Paul Harris Fellowship.

He is a Past Chair and Honourary Director of Grandview Children’s Foundation, United Way Campaign Chair, and has volunteered with Relay for Life, Hockey for Heart, MADD Durham Red Ribbon Campaign, and the Kids Safety Village of Durham Region. Terry is a long-time supporter of Charles H Best Diabetes Centre, Epilepsy Durham, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Rouge Valley and Lakeridge Health Hospital Foundations.

You may also recognize Terry’s voice as the Public Address Announcer for the Oshawa Generals at the Tribute Communities Centre.

Terry is married to Susan, a nurse at Sick Kids and they’re active with sons Curtis and Ethan in school sports and rep hockey in Whitby.
