    GOOD RIDDANCE.

    Does this mean that CJOB will be listenable now?

  • Troy

    And that’s why Hal is doing the ‘OB Morning show now ;)
    It’s all CLEAR. No way would Grant let a cool guy like Hal on his air. That couldn’t have been his call.

    BTW – the best ‘Excuse Me’ was when he ranted about Postal Codes. YEAH. That’s right – POSTAL CODES. :roll:

    Old people complain about the greatest things in life!

    CJOB has become unlistenable under Grant’s tenure. Maybe that’s the fault of the corporate honchos, but the fact remains the same.

    Is there still time to pull ‘OB out of its death spiral???

  • Karen Thompson

    CJBOB IS GONE DOWN HILL. i NEVER LISTEN TO THEM ANYMORE. CLOUTIER SHOULD BE NEXT TO GO. HE WAS GOOD IN HIS PRIME BUT NOT ANYMORE

  • James

    Disagree. Hal is first and foremost a news guy, more so than Larry ever was. It’s a good fit and Vic knows it. Vic and Hal come from the same place. Hal just veered off for a few years.

    Grant established himself as a broadcasting legend in this city. From his days as a writer at the Tribune, to his current day rant on CJOB…In today’s “politically correct world” he was a breath of fresh air, telling it like it is… no matter who he pissed off. Love him or hate him,he definitely deserves some respect for always standing up and being accounted for.

    I will miss Vic Grants “Excuse Me ” comments. Although I did not always agree with his daily commentary piece, he should be given credit for having the courage to “Tell it the way he saw it”. He commented on topics that most people thought about but just accepted as they were. Vic Grant love him or hate him stirred controversy, brought topics of public interest to the discussion table at work place water coolers, lunch tables and to outside smoke breaks. I found myself on many occasions thinking “He has a good point”! and “That’s what I was thinking”. Unfortunately the next day brought a new “Excuse me comment” and the previous discussion ended with out anything changing. Although Vic did not have the power to make changes that seemed to make perfect “common” sense to most of us, at the time.He did give us an opportunity to think about what is happening in todays society and when we agreed, he provided the opportunity for us to think that we are not alone in our humble opinions!
