Richardson has been a broadcaster on CBC Radio One, beginning in 1992 as a regular contributor and guest host on Vicki Gabereau's show. When Gabereau left to host a television show on CTV, Richardson moved over to CBC Radio Two to host As You Like It, a classical music request show. In 1997 he returned to CBC Radio One to become host of Richardson's Roundup.

Thank you so much for including this event on your blog. We are very excited to have Bill Richardson down in Knowlton. I saw him this spring in Toronto. He was hosting a Book Expo event and he was so funny and charming that I'm really looking forward to his visit. We are picking him up in Montreal so we will be able to have a nice chat with him. Thanks so much for your support. I really enjoy page.
