It is my sad duty to inform you that former NEWS 1130 anchor Andy Walsh has passed away at the age of 90. He spent 65+ years in radio, the last 20 in our newsroom. I was lucky to read weekend mornings with him until his retirement in 2017. Rest well, Andy. And thank you.

  1. I fondly remember listening to Andy Walsh’s newscasts during the sixties when he was with CHQM. His intelligent voice embodied the sophisticated, adult style the station had at that time. In those days, Vancouver radio was distinctive. Now, it is part of the homogenized drivel that is the same in every city in North America.
