Once Again Via CBC News

Concerning the Death of Robin Williams by Suicide on Monday, 08/11/2014 @ Age 63:
The Story of Robin Williams’ Death reached me yesterday afternoon from CBC News The National, via The National’s You Tube Page.

Wendy Mesley and Marc Critch spoke about the Death on air. Wendy is filling in for Mr Peter Mansbridge, who like Walter Cronkite, is Anchorman and Managing Editor of CBC News The National. Mansbridge even sounds somewhat like Walter Cronkite.
Mark Critch, originally from Newfoundland and who impersonates CBC Resident Curmudgeon, The Redoubtable Rex Murphy, contributed to the report.

CBC News has broken more news on my Mobile Devices than any US Network, from the Death of Baseball Hall of Famer Gary Carter(A few minutes before WFAN Radio in CBS Hudson Square in Lower Manhattan), the 2012 Presidential Election(3 Minutes ahead of FOX News), and Superstorm Sandy, giving more NYC Storm Info than WCBS 880 & 1010 WINS. CBC News was on top of the Death of Whitney Houston, followed by ABC News.

If you remember Laraine Newman from NBC Saturday Night Live, Wendy Mesley sounds a bit like Laraine Newman.

I Like CBC, Eh!

M, Eh!
