He’s married to his former co-host, Penney Murphy, and together they have four kids and five grandkids.
In his off time, you can find Brent at his Pike Lake area home relaxing on his massive deck with their three dogs – or travelling everywhere from Winslow, Arizona, to Caribbean cruises and the English countryside.

Greg Morgan always dreamed of someday being on CJME.
Growing up in the Rosemont neighbourhood, Greg’s parents had CJME playing on the radio 24/7. He grew to love radio and stints in places like Meadow Lake, North Battleford, and Lloydminster, Greg worked his way back to Regina and the afternoon show on CJME.
After several years, Greg left for other opportunities, including STV, (now Global), where he was the weatherman for 10 years. For a change of pace, Greg worked in private business before winding up back in radio. He’s now come full circle, back home at 980 CJME where it all began.
Now a father of two amazing daughters, Greg is thrilled to be waking Regina up with the days big stories, as well as a bit of fun and a smile. He says the only thing that could have made his return to CJME better is if his dad were still alive to hear him back on the station that he first introduced him to all those years ago.
