Darren B. Lamb, one of the funniest, edgiest and goofiest personalities on radio has called it quits, via Twitter. Together with Roger Ashby and Marilyn Denis, Lamb has been the foil to one of the most successful radio shows in Canada today.
Born in Manitoba, Lamb caught the radio bug early. By Grade 11, he already had his first on-air gig and by Grade 12 he was a full-time announcer. His career took him to several different stations in a short period of time as he climbed the ladder of success. As a result he's worked in five provinces and two countries.
Before arriving at CHUM FM in November of '03, Lamb was one of Vancouver's top jocks, known for his work on the top-rated Z-95.3 morning show. Before joining the immensely successful morning team at the FM built by the Waters family and Duff Roman, Lamb did a five year run hosting the afternoon drive show under the nose of today's Bell Media ownership.
As for career highlights, he says that working with Roger and Marilyn is "without a doubt" the pinnacle of his career. He also admits that working as a DJ in New York and Los Angeles were pivotal moments in his radio life. Over the years he has interviewed some of the biggest names in the biz, including Sting, Pink, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Celine Dion, Ellen DeGeneres, Oscar the Grouch and Barney the Dinosaur.
