PULSE MORNINGS with Ian Power & Vanessa Ybarra

PULSE MORNINGS from 6 am to 10 am with Ian Power & Vanessa Ybarra covers news and information you want to know while making you laugh  through that tough morning drive. And, let’s not forget, the Music you Love to listen too.

Ian’s Biography

Rumour has it that Ian could talk well before he could walk. Fittingly, Ian has gone on to spend the better part of his life as a broadcaster. He has been covering community events, interviewing a range of personalities, celebrities, and politicians, hosting thematic radio shows, and playing the hits the kids want to dance to in Metro Vancouver, since, well, he was a kid!

When he’s not on-air, Ian enjoys spending time with his family, playing fetch with his Golden Retriever, and taking pictures of the many beautiful scenes British Columbia has to offer.

Vanessa’s Biography

From a young age Vanessa always wanted to be a broadcaster. From traffic and news reporting to TV hosting and now co-hosting the Pulse FM morning show, her career has brought numerous adventures and a ton of fun along the way. When she’s not working Vanessa enjoys hitting up the latest brewery, weight training and (slowly) learning Spanish, “Hola”.

Join Ian Power and Vanessa Ybarra every weekday mornings—Pulse Mornings—as they give you all things you need to know to start your day.
