Postby albertaboy4life » Thu May 23, 2019 5:49 am

An especially historic treat for you this week, with thanks to our pal Sharkey (Mark Summers).

From his YouTube page here's Bill Matheson from his last shift on the Gord Whitehead morning show on Lethbridge's 1220 CJOC from Friday March 21, 1975 before Bill left for WABC Television in New York.

Bill had been on the air in Lethbridge since 1954. He joined Edmonton's ITV in 1976 where he was eventually named world’s best weatherman in 1995. Bill retired in 1999 and died on September 19, 2006 at age 80.

Thank you, Sharkey!
