Echo Essentials Podcast

The Echo Essentials Podcast ties together all the elements of the North Bay Echo Community Podcast Network, hosted by Essentials newsletter editor Dave Dale and Echo’s principal partner Scott Clark.

Guests on the weekly show will reflect the challenges and issues facing North Bay while Scott and Dave discuss the topics and podcasts featured in the newsletter … as well as upcoming projects.

References to the To North Bay With Love, Backroads Bill, Frontline and Cheap Seats episodes will be common.

The Echo Essentials Podcast drops online each Thursday at 2 p.m.

Billed as North Bay’s oddest couple, Scott and Dave are patently different in both manner and outlook despite being born within a mile of each other and a month apart in 1965. Scott was born for theatre and built up a 20-year career in radio split between Toronto and North Bay before entering the marketing game with Clark Communications celebrating the 20-year milestone in 2024.

Dave took the print media route, beginning in 1986 as a Canadore College student and taking a journalism journey through B.C., North Bay, Kapuskasing and Orillia before a seven-year stint with the Anishinabek News and 18 years as a Nugget reporter, photographer and columnist. He is also the publisher of the Back in the Bay Magazine, a quarterly print product with 13 editions since launching in 2021.
