Broadcast Dialogue brings to our attention a most remarkable radio career. Dale Smith, the morning news anchor at CFCW Camrose/Edmonton, is –- after 47 and a-half years doing news at the station– retiring Oct. 17.
Smith started with CFCW May 1, 1967, immediately out of radio school. It’s the only radio job he’s ever had…
There are only a handful of broadcasters who can match that record with one set of call letters. Congratulations, Dale, on an achievement that will stand as a landmark of reliability and consistency.
And a very happy retirement replete with days and weeks of sleeping in!
