Andy Walsh

Weekend Anchor

Andy has been in broadcasting for 56 years, starting out in Cornwall, Ontario, at CKSF in 1951. There were stops in Sault Ste. Marie and Ottawa, before heading to Montreal, his home town, where he spent 15 years at CJAD. In 1969 Andy had an opportunity to go to Vancouver, BC, as news announcer for CHQM-AM-FM. Packing the family treasures, along with six kids and wife Bea, the family settled down to west coast living, in Richmond, and has never looked back. Andy took over News Director duties, shortly after his arrival and spent 25 years at CHQM. He can be heard on the weekend as a morning News Anchor at News1130, and has been at it for the past ten years.
