Walter has worked at several radio stations around Toronto, including a stint at the legendary CFNY-FM in its ’80s heyday. He has co-produced documentaries for television and has worked as a casting agent for film and television, as a DJ at some of the city’s top clubs, and as a promotions and publicity representative for numerous award-winning Canadian musicians.
