Here’s a little-known fact about former Global B.C. investigative journalist John Daly. Back in the 1970s, he worked at the Georgia Straight.
Last August after 36 years with Global and its precursor, BCTV, the veteran reporter hung up his microphone, announcing his retirement.
But it hasn’t lasted that long.
Today, CKNW Radio put out a news release saying that Daly is making a comeback with a new radio talk show, Back on the Beat.
It will air on Saturdays at 11 a.m.
CKNW is owned by Corus Entertainment, which is controlled by the Shaw family. Corus owns Shaw Media, which in turn owns the Global TV network as a result of a corporate reorganization in 2016.
This explains why the Global News Hour is broadcast on CKNW Radio at 6 p.m.
