Off topic a bit but interesting to some here, as Rogers announces cuts close to home and further abroad.

Radio? Cable? I'm confused by these comments. Kind of similar to antennas. And I've already admitted I'm some what old.

It’s a golden anniversary for CKNW AM 980 Vancouver host Stirling Faux, who is marking 50 years in the radio business this weekend. Originally signing on November 15, 1970 as a host for CKSO in Sudbury, ON, his career took him to Toronto, Quebec City, Vancouver, Calgary, and back to Vancouver again, where he’s been ever since. Faux is likely the only person to spend significant time on-air at all four Corus Radio Vancouver stations.

Amazing that anyone can last that long in that industry above all others; the shelf life of a 'jock' in recent years is very finite as my Vancouver DJ buddies will tell anyone willing to listen. Once upon a time back in the Middle Ages you could expect to have a very nice career in local radio (or TV) but those days are long gone. Stirling Faux is an institution I remember listening to him on CKLG when I was barely in my teens. Congrats to him, very well deserved.
