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.
