In Rotation: Kim D'Eon


For almost 15 years, Kim has charmed audiences with her warm Nova Scotian personality, keeping us up to date on current affairs and celeb entertainment. With a resume that boasts contributions to Street Cents, Marketplace, CBC Newsworld, and The Hour, Kim is best known for her work with ET Canada and, most recently, as the host of Family Cook Off on Food Network Canada. As someone who spends a lot of time travelling, Kim created a playlist that’s perfect for passing time.
I love this list because all the songs are beautiful and just introspective enough to allow me to daydream/reflect/soul-search on a long ride.
