I think her name is Gerry Smith. There are a couple of other female tv announcers I can't stand, one on CHEK and one on Global.

CFAX has two ladies on during daytime hours now, Lisa Best and Sandy Hall. Both are great.

The weekend news reader during Alan Perry's Tech Talk is a bit hard to listen to.

The owners of CFAX and KoolFM have filed for bankruptcy.

Both stations are owned by Bell Media. Bell has a licensing agreement with iHeart Radio for content streaming.

Saying that the owners of these two stations have filed for bankruptcy is incorrect.

Ya, it's just a branding thing... no real effect except they might play down the connection for a while.

Art Bell gets shot at while recording a live podcast session: http://artbell.com/g...live-broadcast/

Legendary radio host Art Bell has stopped his podcast following alleged attempts on his life. Apparently some deranged individual wants him to stop making radio shows and is prepared to kill him.

Bell founded Coast to Coast radio which was the most syndicated show (in the world?) at its peak, which included CFAX. Bell was subsequently replaced by George Noory and left the US.

Back in the US he made a comeback on Sirius satellite radio about 2 years ago, but he quit following the inability of Sirius to provide a streaming option for his massive audience. When his non-compete clause expired this year Bell started a podcast which was abruptly brought to an end just days ago.

Sad, as he is one of radio's greats.

 

Art Bell has died.

Oh no, such a (relatively) young age. Dang.
