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!
