Tom Davies gave three of us a tour of the CHQT transmitter a few years ago. This News from Broadcast Dialogue this morning:
Tom Davies, chief engineer at Corus Radio Edmonton, will retire Oct. 31 after a 45-year career. Davies started at CHED, which at the time was owned by M. H. Sibbald, Lloyd Moffat and E. A. Rawlinson, on Nov. 1, 1971 as assistant engineer under Clint Nichol. In 1978 Davies was appointed chief engineer, a position he has held over the course of a number of ownership changes.

Other items from this morning's Broadcast Dialogue:
Mandi Hemmerling is the new client services director at Newcap Radio Edmonton. Hemmerling moved from Corus Edmonton where she had been creative director for 16 years. Matthew Souch has also joined Newcap Edmonton as creative writer. He moved from Corus Edmonton where he started his career in 2012 after graduating from BCIT.

Ken McFarlane is the new GSM for Harvard Broadcasting’s Hot 107 (CJNW-FM) and 95.7 Cruz FM (CKEA-FM) Edmonton, succeeding David Humen who had resigned for personal reasons earlier.
