“John Hamilton is On-The-Go with YOU, Sundays 9-10 A.M.“
Host of On The Go with John Hamilton – KGO Radio
John decided he wanted to be in the radio business when he was seven years old. His career began in 1955 and has seen him on both sides of the microphone. He got his first jobs in Victoria and his native Vancouver, then on to Phoenix, San Diego and finally the Bay Area, where he worked at KPAT/KRE from 1965 to 1971.
John has been a travel and outdoor enthusiast all of his life and, in 1971, he left day-to-day radio to form a news bureau focusing on outdoor sports for 2,000 broadcast outlets. In 1974, he became a regular part of the KGO line-up with up-to-the-minute reports directly from the slopes and other outdoor destinations. In 1987, he began hosting OnTheGo on KGO Radio.
In 1999, John sold his company, AMI News, (producer of OnTheSnow.com and other outdoor radio features to Mountain News Corporation, now owned by Vail Resorts) and turned his full professional attention to KGO. He has won many broadcasting awards from professional associations including California Outdoor Writers, Pacific Inter-Club Yachting, U.S. Ski Journalists, North America Ski Journalists and the Society of American Travel Writers.
A graduate of the Broadcast School at New York University, John lives in the East Bay and has two sons and two grandchildren.
