From the debauchery of The Tom and Larry Show on FM rock radio in the 80’s to a talk radio phenomenon on CJOB and later on CBC, Manitoba Broadcaster’s Hall of Famer Larry Updike still found time to finish a Theology degree, and a Philosophy degree at the University of Winnipeg, earning the honour of Distinguished Alumni (and a Plato Prize to boot).

An advocate for the less fortunate, Larry has spent time as the spokesperson for Siloam Mission and as a supporter of The War Amps, earning him the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002. He is also a relentless advocate for individuals with autism after his own son Gordon was diagnosed with the disorder in 1994
