Nevin is a consummate broadcaster and gentleman. Always gracious and helpful to me when I was starting out in the business. Thanks Nevin - and congratulations!

Pulling for Tim - a great guy and broadcaster. I've seen him on various Hamilton stages over the years (he's a terrific actor) and I've had the pleasure sharing a stage with him on a couple of occasions. Let's hope he's behind the mic soon!

Here is a link to Doug's obituary in the Spec. The funeral is Friday in Hamilton:

Worked with Doug for many years at CHAM. A good guy. Really knew his music. I remember humming a song once in the newsroom and couldn't place it. Shortly after Doug gave me a copy of Soulful Strut by Young Holt Unlimited. Knew he wasn't doing well, but sad to hear, just the same.

As a former long-time worker-bee at the station when it mattered, it's a sad waste of a signal.

Sad to hear of The Diller's passing. A great guy who will be missed.

I hope Graham enjoys his retirement. A nice guy I enjoyed working with in the mid 80's.

SOWNY » Brian Fysher Retires at 680 » December 22, 2017 7:35 am

His final roundup is filling in this morning for Paul Cook. Brian was my boss for 14 years at CHAM and we worked together for a few years at 680. A great mentor and friend and a consumate professional. I wish him well as he and Carol begin the next chapter! Here is a link to his sign-off this morning:

SOWNY » Ryan Bonnar Leaves AM 640 On His Own Terms » May 13, 2017 6:16 am

I got to leave on my own terms after a 20 year run. That was 14 years ago. Became an elementary teacher and now an administrator. Still miss the excitement of turning on a mic, but could see where things were headed. Still makes me sad when I hear of another purge. somewhere. Timing, as we know, is everything.

I had the pleasure of working with Coop at CHAM. One of the highlights of my career. A true pro and an ever greater person.

Lindsey's sentiments are correct. Unfortunately, that ship sailed when the CRTC allowed multiplicity of ownership in markets.
