About

George Jonescu’s favourite music is big band, bluegrass, and gospel so it is very fitting that he hosts BIG BAND SUNDAY NIGHT on The New AM 740.

In September 2010, George will celebrate 60 years in broadcasting! Starting his career as the host of TEEN TIME, his radio days have taken him to stations in Montreal, Sault Ste. Marie, Barrie, and Toronto. About his work he says, “Being a broadcaster affords a platform which must always be used with responsibility and sensibility, if not, it is an indulgence.”

George is a community man. He gives his time through the White Cross Centre, a mental health halfway house in Sault Ste Marie where he has led a campaign to build sports facilities; spoken out for women’s rights in business and sport; and worked with young people.
