Gary Russell

[Via Cosford]

Following a courageous battle with cancer, our dear brother, Gary Russell (Norm Vidler) passed away peacefully in White Rock on January 2nd with his devoted wife Joan and family by his side.

Gary's contributions as a broadcaster spanned more than four decades. Starting with on-air work he then carved out a successful career in programming and management with Moffat Communications and Standard Broadcasting. Gary was a champion and supporter of his on-air talent and managers inspiring them with confidence and the opportunity to excel.

Gary served on the Boards of such distinguished Industry associations as BBM, BCAB and NABS West.

In 2007, Gary retired from his role as General Manager of Standard Broadcasting’s CISL/Z-95 in Vancouver.

In 2008 he was inducted into the CAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.  

Gary was 67.

Madness takes its toll.  Please have exact change.
