PAUL SKI
CHLO St. Thomas, Ont.
October 22, 1968

(Contributor: Don Shuttleworth)



From teenage jock to broadcast icon. That was the story of Paul Ski.

Ski got his feet wet in radio when - as a Grade 10 student in the mid-'60s - he took the afternoon drive show at CHLO London. From there it was a magic climb to the top of the CHUM system, and then the pinnacle of Rogers radio division. After being named to the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Hal of Fame, he retired in 2014, capping a half-century career in radio.

Enjoy Paul Ski on CHLO from October 22, 1968 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
