The Global News Radio 980 CKNW personality is retiring from The Jon McComb Show at the end of the year. McComb has been with the station for over 36 years and has spent the last half-century in broadcasting.
“Jon is an award-winning newsman, commentator, and personality. His success isn’t only in longevity but in his ability to reinvent and perform in any role or time slot,” said Larry Gifford, National Director, AM Radio, Corus Entertainment.
McComb began working with CKNW in 1983 and has held a variety of roles with the station. Before joining CKNW, he worked at CFCF and CJAD in Montreal, and stations in Arizona and Oregon. He was the first CKNW news reporter to become a full-time talk host.
CKNW will pay tribute to McComb on-air with surprise guests and classic McComb moments over the next four weeks.
A new host will be announced in the coming weeks.
