A local television and radio broadcaster no longer seen today was CJIC-TV, which broadcast from 1955 to 2002. One personality who was especially prominent was Grace Pitt. She worked for over forty years at the station, long enough she became something of a local celebrity.
Her career began with her as a co-host of the morning show, before eventually becoming women's director at the station and hosting her own television program. As you can see by these photos, she would often interview people, help advertise products, and even did cooking shows. Outside of the station she was one of the founding members of the Great Tug Boat Race, an event that ran yearly in the summer from 1982 to 2015.
Grace would live to see the end of the station, and passed away in 2009 at the age of 81. She is survived by her family, as well as many photos and videos of her career.
