Living Legend Andy Walsh Returns to News 1130 after Heart Surgery


Great to hear the guy with Vancouver’s longest current radio career Andy Walsh back in the anchor chair at News 1130.

The 82-year old Andy had heart surgery about 4 weeks ago, and was under doctor’s orders to stay away from work until now.  I’m pleased to report those great rumbling pipes sound as good as ever.

Andy Walsh began his broadcast career 63 years ago in Cornwall Ontario (1951).  He went on to high profile morning news assignments in Ottawa (CFRA) and Montreal (CJAD) before heading west to CHQM in 1968.  He has been anchoring weekend mornings on CKWX (News 1130) since 1996.

Great to hear living broadcast history back on the job!

Thanks to (and new site curator Ted Wendland) for the picture.


  1. Amazing chops and amazing career. Congrats to Andy on getting back behind the mic. It isn’t a weekend with out Andy Walsh to greet you.
