Veteran CBC-TV reporter Terry Milewski has announced his retirement. The senior Ottawa correspondent made the announcement on Twitter on Monday.
“Small news: I gotta go. After 38 years at CBC, I’m retiring. Still gonna show up often on air and online, so not going cold turkey but…” he posted.
According to his bio on the CBC website, Milewski has worked in 30 countries over 30 years with the broadcaster.
His career achievements include setting up “The National”’s bureau in Jerusalem and becoming its first Middle East correspondent.
Milewski got his start at CKWL Williams Lake BC in 1970. A few years later I had the pleasure of working alongside Terry in the newsroom of CKDA/CFMS Victoria.
A great journalist not afraid to call the dragon out of its lair – remember APEC with creepy Sgt Pepper? Thanks Terry for holding feet to the fire of those who needed it. The RCMP have continued a slide to further incompetence and a threat to public safety.
We will miss journalists.
