Happy 15th Birthday!

Happy recent 15th birthday to Canada's first All News Radio station, Toronto powerhouse 680News.

I grew up listening to All-Hits 680 CFTR. One morning in June 1993, the music stopped and the news started. It was a bold experiment, and it's paid of handsomely.

I joined the station a few months later in February 1994, and I've been with the company ever since, although now I'm in Halifax after helping bring the format east in 2005.

I remember the 5th birthday party (I think they gave us calculators) and the 10th (a clock/thermometer/barometer, hanging on the living room wall), and from what I hear, the 15th birthday party was a blast. Wish I could've been there!

  1. LOL Calculators and barometers; are these East Coast employee appreciation tokens?! That's hilarious ...
