Rick Arnish will step down as chair of the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group in January.

Arnish, who started at the Broadcast Centre as an announcer trainee in 1969, has announced he’ll retire after 47 years with the company.

He worked as a radio and TV announcer, reporter and sales person before being appointed program director, then was named general manager when Jim Pattison bought the Broadcast Centre.

Arnish was president of the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group for 14 years and chair of the company for the past three.

“Of course this was not an easy decision for me to make as our group, our team and the broadcast industry as a whole has been a major part of my whole professional and personal life,” he wrote in a letter to employees, adding it’s time to “fade to black.”

In addition to two radio stations and a TV station at the Broadcast Centre, Pattison owns almost 50 radio stations and two other TV stations.

Arnish has received several broadcast awards and has also been active in the community as chair of the Royal Inland Hospital’s New Century Campaign, among others.

This post is great timing for me, as I’m in the market for a new suitcase and have been contemplating something with spinners. The last few times before my old suitcase gave up and died, I cursed only having two wheels because it felt like I was dragging a ton of bricks behind me from the parking lot to the airport. Of course, that’s probably partially my fault for carrying too much, but still – I only take a carry-on, so I don’t feel like it should be so heavy.
