My name is Sheldon Spackman and I’m the newest member of the rdnewsNOW team here in Red Deer. I’m excited to join this experienced group of professionals and aim to contribute in a positive way to it’s continued success.
As for my background, I was born in Winnipeg, raised in Regina and also spent 10 years in Burlington, Ontario where I attended Broadcast School in nearby Toronto. This eventually lead to the start of my Radio Broadcast career in Swift Current, Saskatchewan where I spent five years as an Announcer, Producer and Music Director.
Then I switched gears to the News side of the business and that took me to High Prairie, Alberta where I spent a little over a year. My next stop was Red Deer in December of 2005 where I have now spent over 11 years doing Radio News and Video Journalism in this market.
Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family and being involved in this community through Red Deer City Soccer / Renegades Soccer Club and previously with Red Deer Minor Football and Red Deer Minor Hockey.
I look forward to this new chapter of my life unfolding!
