Calgary radio legend Doug Veronelly was celebrated today on our sister station Country 105 after announcing his retirement several weeks ago from The Odd Squad.
Doug has played a vital role not only in Calgary’s country radio scene, but in the hallways of Corus Entertainment in Calgary.
“Doug’s open mind, large radio presence and stability has allowed The Odd Squad to grow into what it is today,” says Phil Kallsen, Program Direction at Country 105. “We send a heartfelt thank-you to Doug for his many years as part of the Country 105 familiy and wish him all the best on his retirement.”
Doug says its a bittersweet goodbye.
“Leaving my radio family is hard but at the same time I am very happy to be able to spend more quality time with my family at home. I thank everyone at Country 105 and all of our listeners for their support and kindness over the last two decades. It’s been a great run.”
Today Country 105 aired a special farewell show with Doug, Robyn and Dan, along with Roger Rhodes who will take over Doug’s chair on the morning show.
