Andy Barrie Announces Retirement From CBC


You've got to love Andy Barrie.  He's been hosting Toronto's CBC Radio One program Metro Morning since 1995 and is one of the finest broadcasters working in this city.  His Metro Morning has always been a favourite of mine.

This morning, on his 65th birthday, he announced that he's retiring and that his last show will take place the morning of March 1.  After 15 years he deserves a chance to sleep in past 4am.

In 2008, I wrote about Andy's leave of absense.  He was caring for his wife Mary, who passed away last February.

Good for Andy, stepping down while still at the top of his game.
