The last of the old Global Crew. A great fellow, and even better reporter. I wish him nothing but blue skies. Enjoy the retirement, John.

Last of the true beat journalists on Global? Always had great contacts on the crime beat. Difficult to replicate that with Twitter and the like.

Looking back … anyone remember when the News Hour signed in its first on-air reporter. Dale Hicks I believe. And then when the News Hour had just one weekend reporter, Ed Cosgrove. He’d run stories from Maple Ridge to Horseshoe Bay.

He was once a reporter at the CBC in Vancouver. It would of been something had he become a foreign correspondent for perhaps CNN.

Some Guy in BC Radio

I met him last year at the RTDNA Award ceremony in Vancouver. He made a point of finding me to congratulate me and my radio station on our wins. We’re not a Vancouver station and it was flattering that he took interest in what we were doing.

I know it was just a small interaction, but I was left with such a good impression of him as a person to go along with my respect for him as a reporter.

I wish you all the best in retirement.
