Veteran broadcaster Gord MacDonald announced his retirement this morning on 980 CKNW. We would like to thank Gord for his 33 years of service to our CKNW audience every weekday morning and congratulate him on a 47 year career! Enjoy your retirement Gord!
A final word from Gord to his listeners: “This is my final newscast on CKNW. After 33 years here, and 47 years in radio newsrooms, it is time for me to learn how to go to bed and wake up at a regular time, and actually have dinner with my family. To you listener, thank you. Thank you for listening and thank you for supporting CKNW News and Global News all of these years. To all of my colleagues here, thank you……for everything. It has been an honor to work with all of you, and it’s been an awful lot of fun. And to my family, the biggest thanks of all….for putting up with the long hours away from home, for your understanding, for your patience, and for your steadfast love. ” – Gord MacDonald.
