Daniel Mante

On-air talent, journalist, artist, and overall creative. Daniel “DM Cool” Mante brings all of these skill sets to the table every week on his live radio/podcast program known as C.O.O.L. Radio! This program is dedicated to discussions that primarily revolve around hip hop, sports, pop culture and sociopolitical commentary as he believes that these different avenues within media intersect with one another. As a recording artist and earning degrees in journalism-broadcast and communications, Daniel decided to create a platform that he felt was void in Toronto and thus the program was launched. Each week a special guest (which comprise of talented individuals from different walks of life) have appeared on the show to join the discussion to give their unfiltered take on what the latest topics are to takeover the news cycle within those realms. It’s a division of C.O.O.L. Clique Media & Entertainment and listeners can tune in live every Friday evening from 8:30-9:30pm eastern standard time at maximumfm.ca! All podcasts can be streamed or downloaded at soundcloud.ca/coolradocc!

For 21 years I went on diets in an attempt to lose weight. Every time I was able to lose weight, I always regained the weight plus more. Up and down I went. After finding myself once again overweight, I finally realized the fast and easy diet approach was not working. This is what started me on my mission to learn the truth about why I was unable to lose weight permanently and what I would need to do to be successful. Over the next 10 years, I searched within myself and outside myself for true answers. I was able to finally learn the truth about how to lose and manage my weight. Now, I want to share what I learned with you. All the knowledge and skills I learned resulted in the book: Transform Your Mind, Transform Your Weight. For 20 years I have counselled youths and adults with a variety of mental health, behavioural, and addiction issues. Over my 20 years of work experience in the Social Services field, I have obtained numerous certificates in topics like: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Stress and Anger Management. I have a Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree with a specialization in Psychology. I also have a Post-Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management. I am a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists, and Psychotherapists (OACCPP) and a former member of the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counsellors.
