This years 930CJCA/K-97 Alumni took place at Brewsters in Oliver Square, Edmonton, Alberta.

Those in attendance at the event covered the years 1979-1992 with people from mostly K97. A few of us CJCA alumni were also there. James Gardner flew in from Victoria to be at there…

At a CJCA/K-97 alumni reunion the other day, Cam Tait told me that today (August 18) would be the 40th anniversary of his first published article as a journalist. Cam has worked for the Edmonton Journal and the Edmonton Sun, and would come in regularly to the radio station for a weekly (I think) commentary or feature. It really is a remarkable tenure these days, and especially because Cam focuses on stories that are overlooked or under-reported in much of the media.

Congratulations, Cam! Thanks for forty years of quality writing and reporting in Edmonton. It was great seeing you the other night – thanks for hanging out!
