Costas Halavrezos


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 selling spices, which is what he does every Saturday as “The Spiceman” at the Historic Farmers’ Market in Halifax.

Costas loves pickup basketball, playing bass with the BBQ Kings, cooking for friends, and tending his grapevines in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
