When Bill Cameron was anchoring CBLT's Toronto News in the 90s, it was my go-to station for the 6:00 news. I always thought Cameron had a deadly combination of intelligence and wit and I followed him to CBC Newsworld when he left CBLT. I heard his voice earlier this year as the narrator of an excellent documentary and remembered how versatile he was. He will be missed.
