CHQT 50th Anniversary Reunion

Postby jon » Wed Apr 15, 2015 4:36 pm

Today's Edmonton Broadcasters Club Luncheon was a combined CHQT 50th Anniversary Official Reunion and Murray Blakely's 80th Birthday event. Murray was also featured on the CHED Morning Show this morning, as it is actually his birthday today.

By far, the biggest turnout that the Club has ever known. One of our speakers, Bill Bagshaw, joked that the majority of Sales people who ever worked for him at CHQT, were present today.

How big is big? Take a look at the group shot:

And remember that this is just those who have worked at CHQT. Total attendance was 93.

Nice quick tribute to Murray's 80th birthday and CHQT's 50th anniversary yesterday morning on CHED between Bruce Bowie and Bob Layton just before the 7:45 a.m. News.

Thanks for Marc Patterson for this, CHED and CHQT's long-time (he started over 40 years ago at CHQT) Production Guru. He took a day of vacation to attend the Luncheon.
