  1. Leaving the top dog for the all news network? Probably a good choice. You will miss the yuck yuck bunch. You will miss the riveting ace reporters delving into tough questions. What to do with your wedding ring after a divorce? A 5 part series to decide between pawn shops, ebay craigslist or tossing it into English Bay. The uncomfortable question. The hot question. The buzz line. The winners and losers.
