In a career, on-air broadcaster, where it is difficult not to have an oversized ego, Andy has "stuck it out" and still done a great job, when few others would not have quit in disgust.
Case in point: CHQM in the Summer of 1971. Andy did Weekday Morning News. Not positive that he actually had the title of News Director, but he was certainly the senior Newsman.
GM Bill Bellman hires Paul Taylor from Newsradio Canada, where he was Ottawa Bureau Chief, and names him News Director. Andy continues doing Morning News as Paul has no assigned News shift, splitting his time between News Director duties and Roving Reporter.
Shortly after I left, just shy of a year later, Paul is gone, too. And Andy becomes News Director.
During all of this, I never heard a bad work spoken about Andy.
