“It has been both my privilege and my pleasure to be part of your morning as host of The Early Edition. To be invited into so many homes every morning, to be part of your morning routine, to be allowed to tag along on your morning commute is something for which I am extremely grateful and will treasure forever,” said Cluff.

Today, CBC British Columbia announced the retirement of its long-time host. Cluff officially signs off one last time from the hosting chair on Friday, December 22, 2017.

“We thank Rick for his dedication, drive, and passion for broadcast news and morning radio all these years,” says​ ​Johnny​ ​Michel,​ ​senior​ ​managing​ ​director,​ ​British​ ​Columbia​ ​and​ ​Alberta.​

“​Rick has this natural ability in creating conversations on important issues in our city.”
