Erin Davis Announces Retirement from CHFI

Erin Davis, a fixture on Toronto radio for 28 years, has announced her retirement. She records her last morning show for CHFI on December 15 and will then move with her husband to British Columbia to "begin a new life".

I had the pleasure of being visited by Erin for episode 84 of my podcast and it remains a personal favourite. She shared the goods about getting fired and rehired by CHFI, her classic Blue Jays songs, sleeping with the boss (scandalous!) and lessons learned along the way. If you've never heard it, I urge you to correct that oversight by clicking play below.

Earlier this year, Mike Cooper retired from mornings on CHFI. Mike was replaced by Darren B. Lamb who came over from CHUM-FM. There's no word as to who will replace Erin on CHFI after December 15.

Erin, if you're reading this, I wish you peace, love and happiness in BC. You deserve it. And since I forgot to take my customary post-podcast picture with you, I'm hoping we can correct that oversight before you depart in December.

I'm closing this entry with a great old ad with WKRP's Herb Tarlek and CHFI's Don Daynard and Erin Davis. Classic!

Wow. Didn't see that coming. Looking forward to checking out the ratings after she retires. Could be interesting.
I admit I don't listen to CHFI but I did enjoy her appearance on Toronto Mike'd.
Erin if you're reading this, happy retirement and safe travels.

I didn't see this coming either, but I do listen every day and I will miss Erin very much. Still miss Mike Cooper after he retired only earlier this year. Best to them both, and their families.

Now they are going to have to spend thousands of dollars replacing all those bus shelter ads with that pretentious Darren B. Lamb and his jazz hands. You know the poster I'm talking about.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

@Steve

The one near me disappeared rather suddenly about a month ago. Maybe that's when she told Rogers about her decision.

Erin was always a class act. Especially loved the morning show when it was her and Don.

Geez. This seems out of left field, especially with those countless ads they put up with her and Darren B Annoy..er..Lamb.
