breaking news

breaking news

In memory of the voice of City. Mark Dailey, a tv anchor, reporter, and announcer passed away on Dec 6th. His distinctive and entertaining voice defined Citytv, and Toronto, for over 30 years. This “breaking news” car bursts out of the old CHUM/City Building.

I was born and went to school in Toronto in the beach, before it was the place to live. Chum was part of my growing up as was CKEY whose anchorman was Lorne Green prior to Pondersoa.I remember Lorne Green announcing the Chinese crossing the Yalu River to support the N. Koreans after they had been severly defeated by US coaltion forces. It was such a gloomy broadcast that to my mind the Yalu River was just beyond the Don River. You've made me re-live a memory. Boom & Gary of The Vermilon River.

Nice tribute. I didn't know of him but from the photo you chose he seems as though he must have been one to keep things interesting.

LilyHdrangea: Yes, Citytv was an unusually innovative tv station when it first started up back in the 70s and Mark Dailey had a fun way with his promos on the station

I was really shocked to hear of his death. I did not know about his cancer. Thanks so much for the link - what a wonderful tribute.
