John Barton Remembered Saturday at Qualicum Beach


A longtime CHEK TV personality was remembered today (Saturday) by his family and friends in Qualicum Beach. Talk show host John Barton, of “Barton & Company” was a big face in Victoria through the 70′s and early 1980′s…but his legacy maybe more about the life he lived off camera than on.

You can see the 2:50 CHEK News package featuring John’s family and friends HERE.

    Great broadcaster! Probably inspired many young broadcasters including myself!

    I had the honor of working with John. He was a down to earth and a very funny guy. He told some great stories. He was a class act

    Keith ‘kj’ James
    Morning man on CHED for 1954 sign-on. I was in awe of he and John Dolan at 2005 Friends of Forbes Reunion

  2. A terrific guy and one of the most professional broadcasters I’ve ever known, I was honoured to work with John on the CHEK-TV production ‘Barton & Company’. The industry has lost a major contributor to its history.
