Champion - Buzz Bishop
Dad blogger, broadcaster and health advocate
Buzz lives in Calgary, Alberta with his wife and two sons. He currently co-hosts the Mornings with Heather and Buzz on XL 103 in Calgary and also hosts weekend shows on Z95-3 in Vancouver.
An early adopter of technology, Buzz has been active online since the early days of Geocities and has built a media brand beyond the radio, especially with his dad blog, DadCAMP. Created by Buzz as a way to bring dads together socially as their downtime switched from the pub to the playroom, DadCAMP has built a network of connected dads sharing stories and supporting each other.
For the past 15 years, Buzz has been an active member of Diabetes Canada, raising over $100,000 while running marathons among the lions in South Africa, the mo’ai on Easter Island, and the volcanoes of Iceland. Currently, he’s Southern Alberta Regional Chair for Diabetes Canada actively advocating for better support for T1D kids in school and for all diabetics from the government.
As for those Guinness World Records? One was for the Longest Game of Netball, one was being part of the largest group of men to have a PSA test for prostate cancer, and one was for being in the crowd throwing the largest amount of teddy bears on the ice at a hockey game.
When he’s not on the radio or hanging with his sons, Buzz can be found in the basement riding his Peloton, golfing, or hiking in the nearby Rocky Mountains.
Buzz’s Health Tip
Get checked. Make the appointment today, don’t worry about it later. Guys often try to suck it up, but we need to deal with it. Get that bump looked at, get your full blood work done, don’t be ashamed to talk to someone if your head isn’t right. A small change today makes a big difference tomorrow.
