(posted Fri. Aug. 14 early in the day)
Hey all, just wanted to confirm that I am indeed leaving CKNW after 14 fantastic years. I’m changing careers after 25 years in radio altogether-figured I should try to learn something new before I turn 50 (which is just a few years away).
I was sad to hear about Ian Koenigsfest being let go yesterday-I had a great relationship with Ian, and the timing of my announcement was entirely coincidental.
I will post details of my new gig and contact info next week, as I will continue filling in for Jon McComb until August 21st. Many of my FB friends are no doubt here because I’m a media guy, so feel free to unfriend me as I leave the biz-no hard feelings!
Finally, while much has been said about CKNW and the changes here over the past year or so, I have to say the company has been great to me. I’m proud to have worked in such an incredible news organization, and wish my friends and colleagues all the best. The Top Dog ain’t going anywhere.
That’s it for now-must figure out what to talk about for the next 4.5 hours. Damned slow-news-days-of-August!
