Elijah Levi Flowers-Nelson
Elijah Levi Flowers-Nelson or Dj Levi is a second-year broadcasting student at Mount Royal University. He loves listening to music from various genres and learning about the different messages behind the songs. He is a fan of the more intrinsic and well thought out lyrical hip-hop that was present in the 90’s. On his show which he co-hosts with Dj Miki (aka Ambar), he discusses a new film or TV show every week. From classics like “The Godfather” and “The Fresh Prince” to more modern shows like “Jane the Virgin.” Tune in on Wednesdays from 12 to 1 pm to hear him live on his brand new show, “The Next Episode.”
Alan Foster, the first word that comes to mind when you see him is tall. The first word that comes to mind when he speaks though is WHOA. The young twenty-two- year old aspires to be a voice actor (think the next Morgan Freeman) and so he spends a lot of his time using his voice in practice. When not attempting to sing or do terrible impersonations, he’s listening to music and almost any genre will do. Jamaican born and raised, Alan brings some island spice to CMRU.ca so expect to hear some of his accent and even some Jamaican lingo on his show. Alan is the co-host of Save Slot, a video game talk show, with Nick Thiele.
Ben Goodman is a third-year Broadcast Media Studies student. He has hosted radio shows on CMRU.ca for the entirety of his time in MRU and it is his favourite thing in the world to do. This spring, he is hosting On The Right Track, a show in which he is inviting his best friends and people he has always wanted to collaborate with to co-host the show with him. Each week’s show will have a different theme picked by the co-host of the week, and he wants to use the show to learn more about his guest via in-show interviews. As a life-long fan of late night talk shows, he wants the show to similarly act just as much of a spotlight (if not more) of his guest co-host, as opposed to himself. If you come away from an episode of the show saying “*Co-Host of the Week* sounds like a great person and I want to be their friend,” then he will have done his job.

Ambar Mikaella or DJ Miki is a 2nd-year Broadcast Media Studies student and has a passion for making people smile. Her life has exposed her to many different cultures. Miki was born in Ecuador, raised in Portland and now living in Calgary. Her experiences have inspired her appreciation for the diverse world of music. She is the co-host of “The Next Episode” alongside DJ Levi. The show is based on showing each other tv shows and movies they never seen before and then rating them with five categories. The music played on the show will always have a connection with the theme of the content they will be rating. Tune in for great talks and music!

Peter Roman was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan and moved to Calgary when he was 3 years old. He is very excited about getting to start his own radio show. He originally came to Mount Royal University for history and that was his major for one and a half years. He then decided what he really wanted to pursue was broadcasting. It’s quite interesting because when he was in elementary school being a sports commentator was actually the career he wanted to pursue, so it’s very much coming back full circle for him. Peter continues to love sports to this day. His greatest sports accomplishment was running the Calgary Marathon at 18 years of age. When it comes to music Peter was in school band from grade 7-11. He played percussion, which involves lots of instruments, but the drums were always his favourite. He even continued in a band with his friends following high school for a couple years. Music is always something he’s enjoyed, and his optimistic fun attitude is going to make his show one to enjoy and listen to. Check out his show Moments of Genius that focuses on playing great songs and keeping you up to date with Sports news.
Nick Thiele is a first year Broadcast Media Studies student at MRU. One day he just kind of showed up and no one has had the heart to tell him to leave. It’s kinda like when a raccoon sneaks into your garage in during a rainstorm, you don’t really want him in there but you’d feel too bad sending him back out into the rain. He mostly hides under the tables, so no one really minds that much. We just bring him food and water in bowls and leave it in the corner. We can’t spare much from the budget so it’s mostly budget dog food, he doesn’t seem to mind though. At this point he seems to be feral, he’s lost most of his ability to talk and communicates through an assortment grunts and screams. Nick is the co-host of Save Slot, a video game talk show, with Alan Foster.
