Forget someone?

Bruce/Larry you forgot someone.

In Saturday’s Freep piece speculating on Doer’s replacement, Bruce and Larry didn’t even mention one of the obvious front-runners. They’ve completely left him out of this story.

No picture, no quote, nothing.

That sums it up

One Minister’s response when asked about his/her thoughts of a possible replacement to Doer.

“I’m too busy grieving to care”

Well played Harper

Harper's move: Poach the most popular Premier in NDP history.

1. Fill an important position with a very competent individual
2. Rip the heart and soul out of the Manitoba NDP
3. Give your team a shot in the next provincial election


Not a bad day’s work

Swan song

Here is Vic's last “Excuse me”.

I’m a bit surprised that he mentioned bloggers in his last address. Who knew that we were getting under his skin?

And Vic will be replaced by this guy, former Adler technical producer, rather than this guy.

Note to self....

don't defame anyone on this blog.

Vic Grant is retiring

As of Sept 1, Vic Grant will no longer be news director at CJOB. Now this is not a big surprise as he's been talking of retirement for years. But it seems that this time it's for real. As for a replacement, I wonder what the Chorus executives in Toronto have in mind. Long time host Richard Cloutier??? Or maybe they will bring in some new blood from TO. I have to say I will actually miss his "Excuse Me" segment even though I hardly ever agreed with the guy.

In other news, CJOB is finally filling one of its two full-time reporter positions. They have been vacant since Jeff Keele left for Global and Colleen Bready took a job at City TV.
