A Montreal institution moves west

11.23.07

Longtime radio host and Montreal institution Terry DiMonte is moving to Calgary.

Terry DiMonte has been on Montreal’s airwaves for 23 years. Usually accompanied by longtime friend and sidekick Ted Bird, he’s hopped around, but is best known for his long-standing morning show on CHOM. Terry and Ted helped launch the station which started back when the music they currently play was current… and they returned nearly two decades later when CHOM was flailing, and brought it back to life.

Always classy, generous and involved in the community, and a veritable Montreal institution, Terry DiMonte will be missed. But in a way, his move west is as much a part of Montreal as DiMonte faves Cosmos and Ziggy’s; in this city, losing our best and brightest to the lure of oil money is all too common.

Bye, Terry. Phone in once in a while.
