Andrew Krystal leaves Halifax, returns to The Great Satan, Toronto

One of the first people I got to know when I moved to Halifax almost five years ago is returning to the city that spawned him. Andrew Krystal, host of Maritime Morning on News95.7, News88.9 and News91.9 since the launch in 2005, is taking a job at Toronto sports station The Fan 590.

Andrew and I each had somewhat tumultuous adjustments to changing jobs and locations in the beginning -- his more public than mine. But in the end, we each ended up married, happier and more stable.

Andrew's wife Michelle asked me to put together a little slide show for his departure. It ended up not being shown at his farewell gathering last night at Brussels Restaurant in the Halifax Historic Properties, due to technical reasons. So, I promised Michelle that it'd find an audience on the interwebs.

Andrew: you're an interesting dude, and I'm glad I was a positive force in the dramatic journey you've made from the past to the present. I hope your future is more rewarding and less....interesting.
