Janet Trecarten

Brand Director,
CFQX-FM 104.4 (QX104 FM)

Winnipeg, MB, Canada

Originally from Ottawa, Janet graduated from the Radio and Television Arts program at Algonquin College. She’s worked in Operations, Programming and Music Director positions at CKOY, CKBY (now Y101) in Ottawa, CISS FM (during the country days) & CMT in Toronto, Bayshore Broadcasting in Owen Sound and CHML in Hamilton.

In 2004 Janet moved to Winnipeg to become the Program Director/MD for QX104, and added operations manager responsibilities for the company’s Brandon stations (The Farm and KX96). After the Brandon stations were sold and The Jim Pattison Broadcast Group bought QX104, she remained in her role for QX104 and took on a ‘Programming Specialist’ role with the company. Janet also works for Albright, O’Malley & Brenner, a consultancy group based in the US helping with playlist recommendations and music testing for their Canadian clients.

She dabbles with the guitar, but prefers to listen to people who really know what they’re doing, is a bit of a Netflix junkie and when the weather’s nice, spends a lot of time at the golf course vowing to break 100 someday.
