Costas Halavrezos is best known as the former host (1987–2010) of CBC Radio's Maritime Noon. Costas grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick, where his parents operated Nick's Coffee Counter. Nick's introduced him to people from all walks of life - an ideal training ground for public broadcasting, and for his six-year post-CBC stint selling spices at the Brewery Market in Halifax. Costas loves pickup basketball, playing bass with the BBQ Kings, cooking for family and friends, and tending his grapevines in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
