News with Brian Sylvester


Weekday Afternoons 12pm-7pm





I have been on the air here at “The Jewel” as a news anchor and on-air host since our debut here in Ottawa 10 years ago. Some years ago now, I began my career in radio in my hometown Pembroke, with stops in St. Catharine’s and Cornwall. 98.5 The Jewel marked a return to the airwaves for me after spending 17 years in financial services, and 12 years in elected office including six years as a councilor for the City of Cornwall and six years serving as Mayor of Cornwall. Suzanne and I have two daughters and 3 grandchildren!
Favourite Food: Pasta
Favourite Movie: Apollo 13, growing up I was captivated by the space missions. We also enjoy Downton Abbey.
