Stu Schwartz began his career as “Stuntman Stu” doing stunts for an Ottawa rock station in the 90s. His career quickly took off and today he is one of Ottawa’s celebrity morning men and master of ceremonies.
In addition to his morning show on MAJIC 100, Stu is the PA announcer for the Ottawa Senators and his list of clients for his MC and celebrity auctioneer work is vast and varied. Stu works with the The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, CHEO, The Queensway Carleton Hospital, The Ottawa Sens Foundation (for whom he has launched his own wine in support), but to name a few. Stu is a master auctioneer at fund raising events and his confident, classy and quick witted personality make every auction a huge success. He reads a room well and quickly becomes everyone’s best friend.
A victim of bullying as a child, he created the “No More Bullies” campaign where he and his morning show visits local schools to speak and educate children about the horrible effects of bullying. Stu throws his heart into everything he does and his numerous clients love him for it.
His tireless efforts have been recognized – Stu is proud recipient of a United Way community builder award, Canadian Association of Broadcasters Gold Ribbon award, was named Algonquin College’s top alumni in 2003, and is a recipient of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee Medal.
In his (very little) spare time Stu is an amateur chef, living in Ottawa with his wife and 2 children, trying to save enough money to buy a Ferrari.
