Today was my last day on air with @NEWS957. It’s been a great year in radio but I’m excited for what comes next. I’m pleased to say I won’t be going far, and will be joining the @globalhalifax team in July. pic.twitter.com/eF6S16QIDG

My last hit with this guy. The incomparable Victor Modderman who is retiring after 30+ years with the CBC!!!! Can’t believe it. He will be missed by anyone who’s had the good fortune to work with him here. And on the road. pic.twitter.com/jhfD5CShFX

Tonight we celebrate an incredible writer, John Ward, who is departing @CdnPress after a mere 48 years. He taught me, and many others, to be more careful and thoughtful journalists. Please join me in saluting his commitment to the wire and the written word.

Je quitte Radio-Canada pour découvrir de nouveaux horizons. Comprendre, analyser, influencer notre société, mais sous de nouveaux cieux. Le journalisme est un des plus beaux métiers du monde mais il ne doit pas devenir une cage dorée, ce serait trahir l’idéal qui l’anime.
