After 25 Years At Calgary's CJAY, Gerry Forbes Is Calling It A Day

By FYI Staff

Gerry Forbes has been a staple of Calgary radio since the early ‘90s, with his irreverent on-air persona and his involvement in the community. When he turned 60 two years ago it was expected CJAY 92’s morning man would retire, but instead, he re-signed for another two years. Well, the time has come, and on Thursday he announced on air that he was moving on in a month.


On his Facebook page yesterday, Forbes wrote: “Thank you to everyone for the kind words and messages on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I am overwhelmed by the kindness and thoughtful words from everyone. It’s been a gift and privilege to have worked at such an amazing station with a team of superstars. I don’t often shed a tear, but they were flowing today.❤️ Stewart Myers and Chad Martin have been amazing as my Generals and for the next month till I hang up the headphones we are playing back the best moments of the last 25 remarkable years. Thanks again everyone for an incredible day.”
