About Maureen Holloway:

Maureen Holloway is a fan favourite on the Canadian media scene.

After long-time stints at CKFM/Mix/Virgin 99.9, Q107, 98.1 CHFI and now Newstalk 1010, Maureen now hosts “Women of Ill Repute,” a high charting podcast with Wendy Mesley.

Throughout her long and varied career, Mo has received many honours, including the 2009 HOPE Award, the Canadian Association of Broadcaster’s Gold Ribbon Award for Humour, and the 2018 Rosalie Award, honouring women in broadcasting who have blazed new trails.

Diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer in 2005, Maureen is an outspoken advocate for women’s health and social issues, and is in frequent demand as a lecturer and keynote speaker, where her topics encompass women, humour and wellness. Now cancer free, she plays golf and piano, both quite badly, and likes to cook, travel, drink wine, and laugh, often all at once.
