Long ago C100/CJCH morning man John Biggs once told me about a young man who worked at an Ontario radio station. Everybody liked him. He worked prodigiously hard. Never caused anybody any problems.
Turned out that they needed a new studio. The cost of building that studio was about the same as this guy’s salary.
So they fired him.
It would seem that Live 105/Hot County 103.5 program director J.D. Desrosiers subscribes to the theory about how the only good defence is a good offence.
Missed the deadline for this one last time out, but the story sorta changed between then and now anyway. As they often do.
Last time, I somehow confused Cove FM in Hubbards with CIOE in Lower Sackville. I apologize for the error and thank Alex J. Walling for bringing this to my attention.
I hate writing these things. Former C100/Q104/Z103/Live 105/Hal FM/ FX 101.9/K-100 announcer Jeff Cogswell died on July 7 of pneumonia. He was 43. Jeff had life-threatening health issues in recent years, which were well documented in these pages.
