Former 66 CFR Calgary newsman now in Utah at Classical 89 FM in Utah.

Classical 89 is a nonprofit, listener-supported station broadcasting at 89.1 FM in Salt Lake County, 89.1/89.5 FM in Utah County, and online at classical89.org

BRUCE SEELY
Morning Classics

Bruce Seely began a long radio career while still in junior high school in his hometown of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. He was hired by a local AM radio station to play classical music from 6 to 9 each weekday evening on their new FM side. Now, some four and a half decades later, Bruce is again hosting classical music from 6 to 9, only now it is weekday mornings as well as 6 to 11 Saturday mornings on Classical 89. Bruce worked at Classical 89 in his student days while gaining a degree in Broadcast Journalism and singing with the BYU A Cappella Choir under Dr. Ralph Woodward. In the years since he has enjoyed raising a large and happy family while working in radio news in Canada and the United States. He sang for some ten years with the Calgary Opera Chorus and with a costumed, strolling, caroling quartet called "Christmas Cheer." Most recently he has sung with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Of his years in radio Bruce says he has been most fortunate because "it has rarely felt like I go to work, I enjoy it that much."

Yes, Brent's younger brother.
Brent and I worked together at CJOC in the late '60's.
Brent was Sports Director.
He later became News Director after Bill Skelton and then Manager of CJOC and it's FM station and retired a couple of years ago.
I never worked with Bruce, I was already headed east when the FM came on the air.
Bruce, IIRC, did some other work in Calgary.

The missing edit button should be visible now. In this and the Edmonton Broadcasters sections.
