    History

    The syndicated Trucking Radio Show was launched in May of 2006 and aired on thirty-five radio stations throughout Canada. Over the past ten years, the show name changed and stations were added, including four stations in the USA, one in Europe and Australia. The radio show evolved through several incarnations from The Canadian Truck News Radio Show, to American Driver Radio to the Driver Show, and now simply Trucker Radio. Throughout the decade Stan Campbell and Tim Denis remained as hosts. 

    In December 2012 Alexis Broadcasting Company of Niagara Falls assumed ownership of the show from Steve Graham's Cool Broadcasting Company. The first order of business for Alexis Broadcasting Company’s was to form an alliance with Canada’s most renowned transportation industry publication, Truck News Magazine of Toronto. In January of 2013, the show was renamed, Trucker Radio. Alexis Broadcasting Company co-owner and veteran broadcaster, Stan Campbell remained as the show anchor along with Tim Denis as his co-host. 

    Since 2006, the show, regardless of its name, included a mix of current and 80's and 90's country music. Over the past several years, country music had evolved into what can only be described as pop-country, with more emphasis on pop. However, the music is the key to getting the show on the air on terrestrial radio stations. Without the music…no show on radio.

    Today

    The Trucker Radio Show target has broadened and evolved into a showcase for the modern transportation industry with an emphasis on the younger people, especially women, joining the industry in key roles as technicians, dispatchers and other high tech roles. Our mission is to destroy old tired stereotypes and showcase the bright young men and women attracted to modern logistics. 

    Most of all, we point out to our listeners than the trucking industry is more critical to society's survival than even our military. If all trucks were to vanish for a week, our society would be impacted in profound and chilling ways, including the loss of life. 

    Our Trucker Radio Show is filled with music and fun but balances with critical information for the transportation industry and the public alike.

    The Trucker Radio Show is syndicated and available free to qualified radio stations anywhere in Canada and the USA.
