For the past 24 years, first at the NSCC campus in Kentville and more recently at the Waterfront Campus in Dartmouth, Dave Bannerman has been teaching would-be broadcasters about the ins and outs of radio.
Dave recently announced that he will retire from this job at the end of the school year, and will pursue other radio projects.
Deb Smith recently announced that she has a new radio gig. She is the new morning co-host at KHJ in Fredericton, which promises to play “real country variety.” They have a little network up there, with repeater FM transmitters in Oromocto and New Maryland.
Tom Young died in Newfoundland the other week. Complications following surgery, according to CTV.
My goodness, the Lillian Gish information just won’t stop.

I would exceed my word count if I listed the names of the people who have left the media and accepted a job as a spokesthingy for a political party or large company.
