Toronto Rocks!Published by Toronto Mike on November 23, 2004 @ 12:58 in Toronto News ~ Toronto Focus
Growing up in the 80s, in the years before MuchMusic, my main source of music videos was a show called "Toronto Rocks" hosted by J.D. Roberts on CityTV. It was on every afternoon and featured the popular videos of the time. Roberts brought me the latest videos from Twisted Sister, The Cars and The Talking Heads when I got home from school and I appreciated it.
The big news of this hour is the resignation of CBS anchor Dan Rather, effective this March. This announcement means the CBS Evening News will require a new anchor. That very same J.D. Roberts, who now prefers to be called John Roberts, is CBS's White House correspondent and a likely successor.
To think that J.D. Roberts may be replacing Dan Rather who replaced Walter Cronkite. Toronto Rocks!
