Karen Rhodes
Host of The Second Cup

Born and raised in Ottawa, I absolutely love this community. I attended all Ottawa schools and participated in choir at OHS. My parents also were born and raised in Ottawa attending the schools locally.


I have 2 sisters and 2 brothers (one is deceased). My father had his own business in Ottawa for over 30 years, sadly he passed away in 1995.
Personally, I am a cancer survivor, I have been divorced and have four children plus five grandchildren. I have been with WCMY 1430AM for 10 years and feel very blessed to have my dream job.


As a young girl my only wish was to be on WCMY. I listened to Dan Parker, Bunny Morse and of course Jay LeSeure every day. Then, one day, Jay said they were looking for some on-air talent. So, I bravely typed up my story, also talked about my ambition to be on the air and sent it off to Jay. After that, my dream came true and I have been living it ever since.
