My Word!: The Larry Updike Story

How much trouble can a naïve religious kid from Saskatchewan with a dream of becoming a minister get into when he stumbles into radio while on the road to redemption?

From The Tom and Larry Show on FM rock radio in the 80’s to a talk radio phenomenon on CJOB and on CBC, Manitoba Broadcaster’s Hall of Famer Larry Updike finished a Philosophy degree at the U of W, earning the honour of Distinguished Alumni and a Plato Prize. Larry has served as the spokesperson for Siloam Mission and as a supporter of The War Amps, earning the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002. He is an advocate for individuals with autism after his son Gordon was diagnosed in 1994.
