"I want the facts. It's easy to spout off but it's a challenge to first get the real story and then debate it. I get as much information and the best guests to bring you the whole story, not just a headline. If it's a breaking story you'll hear it now."
THE RUTHERFORD SHOW is loaded with experience, information and opinion." Dave has been a news journalist for over 30 years, many of those years as News Director in a major Canadian market. He has traveled on assignment to Afghanistan, Iran, China, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Bosnia and Rwanda. He has gone to the frontlines of world conflicts to bring the story home to his listeners. He’s taken the show to major news events in Canada; the Winnipeg flood, Montreal Unity Rally, and National political conventions, so that Canadians can be a part of what’s going on in their country. If it’s on the minds of Canadians, it’s on RUTHERFORD.
The RUTHERFORD SHOW has been networked in various markets across Canada for over 14 years. It was the first Canadian radio talk show program to simulcast on television. Dave contributes commentaries to Sun Media , CBC , BBC “Around the World” and other various print and broadcast medias.
"I have biases like everyone else and I don't hide them. I think my listeners want to know where I come from on an issue. This doesn't mean I shut down debate, far from it; I love a chance to hear other opinions. I'm not going to agree with them all, but that's what this kind of radio is all about."
