Sort of interesting since St. Constant is within the Montreal urban area.  So this will be two AM operations in the Montreal region going dark.  One because of financial difficulty and they surrendered their license and the other who has been in non compliance for years and having a license expire at the end of the month. 

Maniwaki CFOR is FM with a rock format, but the town itself is only 4,000 people so the two AM stations in Montreal actually may have more of a chance of coming back since of where they are located. 

Francophone Gold/Oldies maybe??  English oldies have been tried in Montreal without much success but a station playing 60% french oldies and 40% english oldies with  news and possibly a talk show through the week.  Almost like a francophone version of Zoomer!  980 was 50,000 watts daytime and 10,000 night.

He is famously known for the role of the Postmaster General in the Gerome Seinfeld show.

TV scribe Bill Broux took up this issue in his July 29th post. If you haven't seen Friedman recently, there's a pic there that will explain everything this thread is about. 

"I’ve heard of playoff beards, but this is ridiculous. I tuned in to Sportsnet Tuesday for the resumption of NHL hockey only to see that commentator Elliotte Friedman had turned into San Jose Sharks centre Joe Thornton. They both need to see Bill Barber!"

Separated at beardth: Thornton and Friedman

Greg Brady spent years with the FAN 590 and is now with Corus as a sort of semi-permanent fill-in (along with hosting his own Saturday morning 3-hour show on GNR640.) But he used to co-host with a well known personality in Detroit radio who died of cancer Saturday at the way-too-young age of 48. 

In a touching piece about his former colleague for the Detroit News, Brady recalls his friendship and on-air camaraderie with Jamie Samuelsen and the one sporting event he wishes they'd gone to together.

Greg Brady: Radio shows aren't meant to last, but I could've worked with Jamie Samuelsen forever

He might look somewhat better if an attempt was made to trim his beard. However, I have always preferred the clean shaven look.

RIP

His last Tweet was what his wrestling name should be.

I don't mind it, although he was totally unrecognizable the first time I saw him. And I have to say I'm very impressed that he could cultivate such a beard in just four and a half months.
