Rafe Mair former BC radio host and cabinet minister dead at 85

first_imgVANCOUVER – Former B.C. cabinet minister and well-known Vancouver radio broadcaster Rafe Mair has died at the age of 85.A longtime colleague of Mair’s said that he’ll be remembered as a hard-hitting interviewer who was tough but fair.Shiral Tobin, who produced his show on CKNW, said Mair’s doctor confirmed his death at around 6 a.m. Monday morning.Tobin said Mair’s health had been declining for a number of years, but that he had continued to write articles and appear as a radio panellist until recently.She said Mair fought for Indigenous rights, feminism, and the environment in his later years. He even gave up his pastime of fly-fishing over his growing concern for the welfare of animals.Mair’s show on CKNW ran for almost two decades, and was known as one of the most popular radio programs in the province.“He was one of the best broadcasters in B.C. history,” said Tobin. “He used his radio talk show as a bully pulpit on behalf of the people of British Columbia.”Mair’s political career began in 1975, after years of practising law, when he served as a MLA for Kamloops as a member of the B.C. Social Credit Party.He also served as a cabinet minister in a variety of positions during Premier Bill Bennett’s time in office.Former premier Bill Vander Zalm, who served as an MLA and cabinet minister in the legislature alongside Mair, said he was a strong and effective politician who no one could go up against without expecting a lively debate.“I will remember Rafe, and I’m sure everyone will remember, he was a very determined fellow. He made up his mind about what he wanted to do and how it was to be done and no one could really stop him from doing it his way,” Vander Zalm said.“In the debates and the arguments and the discussions that were held both in cabinet chamber or the legislature he certainly made his views known very effectively. As a lawyer that came relatively easy for him.”Mair’s career as a broadcaster began when he was 49 years old. Tobin said Mair turned to journalism because he felt he could have a greater impact by holding power to account.“He saw it as a gateway to power for the public,” she said. “He knew he had more influence, he could give a voice to the issues in British Columbia from the radio station.”Tobin, who is now director of programming and journalism at CBC in Vancouver, said although he had strong opinion and was tough on his guests, Mair was wonderful to work with and great mentor.Mair was a recipient of multiple journalism awards, including the Michener Award for courageous journalism in 1995, and the B.C. Association of Broadcasters “Broadcast Performer of the Year” award in 1993.He is survived by his wife Wendy Conway, five children and step-children, nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.last_img read more

Hanley Wood Elevates Goldstone to President

first_imgPeter Goldstone, who served as president of Hanley Wood’s business media unit, has been promoted to the newly-created position of president of the company.In a memo to staffers, Hanley Wood CEO Frank Anton said that in addition to continuing to oversee the media business division, Goldstone [pictured] will lead the exhibitions group and help “forge a much tighter integration of the company’s go-to-market strategy with its magazines, Web sites and trade shows.”“We’re getting more serious about being a fully-integrated media company,” Anton told FOLIO:. “As we see it, this promotion will give us a significant competitive advantage in good times and bad.” As president, Goldstone will continue to report to Anton, as will marketing president Jeanne Milbrath, Market Intelligence group president Andy Reid, CFO Matt Flynn, CIO Jeff Craig and human resources vice president Bill McGrath.Last month, exhibitions group president Galen Poss and group executive vice president Michael Green resigned. Their departures marked a change in reporting structure within the group, as Poss’ replacement—former exhibitions vice president Rick McConnell—began reporting to Goldstone, not Anton. Hanley Wood’s new leadership structure is similar to the period between 1995 and 2005 when Mike Wood served as CEO and Anton served as president, reporting to Wood, Anton said.last_img read more
