A reader advises that a memorial celebration for retired CBCer Craig Armstrong will be held on Sunday, April 15th, at the Prince Edward Yacht Club in Picton, ON from 2 till 5 P.M.
Armstrong died in February, aged 86.
He was one of the first CBC TV reporters and then a producer. His last assignment for many years was running the syndication service ENS (Evening News Service).
His big scoop was in the 60s when he got an interview with the International Longshoremen Union boss Hal Banks by simply walking up to him and asking if they could talk.
