CHED Edmonton Morning Star Bruce Bowie says Goodbye after 47 Years
Just shy of a month after announcing his retirement, radio legend Bruce Bowie signed off of 630 CHED for the final time Friday morning.
Bowie’s career started in 1972 at CKSA in Lloydminster, Alta., and about two years later he started on 630 CHED.
“I was so nervous about being on air in the big city that I broke out in hives on my first day!” he said with a laugh. “That’s a true story.”
After 12 and a half years on CHED, he moved to a few other stations, before being approached to take over the CISN Country 103.9 morning show after Wes Montgomery left in 1989.
Bowie held that position for 21 years before he made the move back to 630 CHED in 2010. He hosted the 630 CHED Morning News for nine years — until his sign off on Friday morning.
