Ted Arnold, CFAC TV

Postby SteveLegault » Wed Aug 21, 2013 1:14 pm

Ted recently passed away in Calgary....he was the news director at CFAC TV in the late 70's- mid 80's, gave me my first job in television and also stole Ron McLean away from me in Red deer.

Wonderful guy.

Yes, the same Ted.

Gord Whitehead had this to say:

My deepest sympathy to the family. I recall Ted with great fondness from our time together at CJCA in the late 70's. Great sense of humor, fair and just fun to talk to. Another fine broadcaster gone too soon.

I also worked with Ted at CJCA during the same time period.
He was great to work with, having been at the Selkirk News Bureau in Ottawa for a time.
He didn't stay at CJCA that long and I lost track of him after leaving in '83.
He did email me a few years ago but I hadn't heard from him and his email bounced back.
RIP, Ted and condolences to your friends and family.
