RIP Calgary broadcaster John Clark, 67
Radio West was the first site to alert us to the death of CKXL and CJAY Calgary radioman John Clark, who passed away March 27 at age 67, after losing a battle with cancer.
John started in broadcasting in 1970 at CHNL Kamloops before moving to CKXL in 1974 and to C-JAY in the ’80’s. He later worked parttime reading news at QR 77, and apparently was heard for awhile on Penticton’s Magic FM.
On his Linkedin profile Clark said he had spent more than three decades in broadcasting, voicing many commercials, radio documentaries, plays, tv commercials, industrial videos, etc. Clients were pleased with his warm, deep, and authoritative voice for narrations, his soft, sensual approach to soft-sell commercials, and his friendly, ‘guy-next-door’ for medium sell.
He was also a professional musician, playing bass guitar, upright bass, some drums and vocals over a thirty year span. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
