Over the past few months I’ve gotten occasional queries about Tom Armour, the weekend morning news anchor at CJAD. He disappeared from the air, and no one outside the station seemed to know why.
Last week came official news that Armour has retired. The career retrospective by Shuyee Lee interviews people who worked with Armour, but notably doesn’t include any clips or quotes from the man himself.
I never met Armour, and have nothing personal to add, so I’ll just compile some comments posted on social media by people who do know him.

Re @CJAD800 Tom Armour retiring, I started with Tom back when CFCF radio was on Ogilvy. A wonderful mentor and teacher. Best wishes Tom!

A great man to make you think & talk journalism for a cub reporter on his first overnight gig. Enjoy retirement, Tom! http://t.co/ozrEh3LZbK
