On Air

Leanne Doty

Leanne was born and raised in Portage La Prairie where she started her Broadcast career in 1978 working weekends at the local radio station when she was just 15. She later went on to study Communications at Red River Community College and began her career at 880 CKLQ AM in 1982. Over her 43 years in Broadcasting Leanne has received awards from the Canadian Country Music Association for Music Director of The Year and from the Manitoba Country Music Association for Radio Personality of The Year!  She was also our on-air host during the flip to Q Country 91.5 FM in April 2017!  In January of 2021 Leanne took the reins of Morning Show Host very much enjoying the busy mornings even though they start very very early.

Leanne’s favorite destination is Las Vegas and one day she hopes to realize her dream vacation - Hawaii. She enjoys hanging out with friends, listening to blues and jazz, and might have an enormous crush on Michael Bublé and Eric Church.  Her happy place is her cabin at Minnedosa where you’ll find her relaxing on weekends throughout the summer.


Would you rather only be able to use a fork or only be able to use a spoon?

Definitely a spoon - I hate dropping and spilling things!

You're only allowed to eat 3 things for the rest of your life. Name them!

Pizza, Popcorn & my Mom's roast beef.

What would you do if you found a penguin in the freezer?

Keep him! Cause who DOESN'T want a pet penguin.
