On 14 March 2013, 630-CHED Program Director, Syd Smith, fired off this email to all staff on Ed Mason’s Lifetime Achievement award:

Good morning everyone, At 8:45 this morning, we paid tribute to one of Canada’s great radio newsmen.

Ed Mason has received the Radio and Television News Directors Association Lifetime Achievement Award.

This award is presented “to individuals who have distinguished themselves through outstanding service and continued excellence during the course of their career in broadcast journalism”.

For those of us who have known and worked with Ed, this is a fitting description. However, even that does not fully capture the impact he has made on our listeners, the industry, our radio stations and the people who work here.

Edmontonians are well served by a reporter who respects them enough to never stop working on their behalf – reporting factual information in the proper context and without forgetting that it’s okay to have some fun along the way.

Ed has made our industry stronger by mentoring the many young broadcasters he has worked with and by inspiring others through his work on the radio.

Please join me in congratulating and thanking Ed for his contributions to date and — if you missed the on air tribute — please have a listen to the produced piece put together by Bob Layton and Marc Patterson.
