Peter Anthony Holder was born and raised in Montreal, Canada to Horace and Hilda Holder, who were originally from Barbados. He had a desire to be in radio from the age of seven. He followed his dream, going to Dawson College in Communications.
During his time there he was the radio station manager and on the board of the television station. While there Peter did a radio marathon, staying on the air for over 50 hours, raising money for children’s charities through the Inter-Service Clubs Council. The attention it drew actually led to Peter’s first broadcasting job as a radio producer (board operator) at CJFM in Montreal. Peter spent almost 20 years as the host of the late night radio show on CJAD Montreal. During that time he also was the host of the television show, “Soul Call” for eight years and also a writer on “Canadian Case Files” and a reporter on “Mystery Ink.” Peter followed up his radio tenure by becoming a television news anchor at Global News in Montreal. He’s also the author of the book “Great Conversations: My Interviews With Two Men On The Moon And A Galaxy Of Stars.”
