Arnie Celsie

Radio lost a champion on Jan. 28.


Arnie Celsie, my friend and business partner of 25 years, a consultant and morning personality, passed away after a battle with cancer, leaving a legacy of influence in radio programming, marketing, mentoring and coaching, both in Canada and abroad.

Arnie started out in radio in the 1960s, entering consulting full-time in 1990 when he joined me at Bohn & Associates, which evolved to become SparkNet Communications. Arnie could synthesize thoughts the way no one else could and while known by radio executives for his direct, often sharp manner, there was always wisdom attached.

  1. I had the pleasure to work with Arnie on many stations over the years, all those stations where better because of his involvement and contributions. He was candid, insightful, and always willing to help, He will be missed.

  2. I’m just learning this now and this makes me sad. Arnie held a special place in our family as a God parent but sadly we had lost touch. Losing touch was my fault, a life moment I deeply regret.
