From Richard’s facebook profile page…

I am pleased to announce that I will be officially retiring on July 31st after almost 18 years of fun and excitement as Sales & Operations Manager at 97.3 The Eagle C/O The Jim Pattison Broadcast Group.

I have had a great run with over 40 years in the media business and now it is time to move aside for the new wave and to move forward into an exciting new phase of life. Thank you to all the great staff and management, the great customers, and to the great communities – Comox, Cumberland, Courtenay, Campbell River and all points in between, the community events and organizations which I have been associated with over these many years. It has been a privilege and a pleasure.

PS Special thanks to Big Steve Rossner , The ravishing Rick Yurkewich and his wife Jenny Robinson Yurkewich for taking me out the other night and to the Eagle staff for the nice card and vino.

A long and winding road of Richard’s radio career
