History Prof to Be on CBC Radio

January 07, 2010 - In the News

History professor Kevin James is scheduled to be on the CBC radio program Ontario Today Friday afternoon. James will be talking about his role on History Televison's hit show Ancestors in the Attic as the on-air genealogist. He will also participate in a call-in with host Rita Celli during which listeners will be encouraged to call in and share their stories about family history searches/mysteries, with James providing commentary and input. He will be on the air from about 12:20 to 1 p.m.

James has worked as both a researcher and panelist for Ancestors in the Attic, which helps Canadians unearth mysteries about their past, during its first three seasons. But last winter, he received a last-minute call from the producers asking if he’d be willing to step into the role of the on-air “lab guy.” The role has taken him all over Canada. Read more
