Jo, the stories that Mr. Lloyd Robertson has to tell must be priceless. With over 60 years of journalism to his credit this is an event not to be missed...wish I was closer.

While he does have a very news "anchorly" appearance, I NEVER would have taken hom to be 78  years old!  I hope he continues his behind the scenes contributions - I can't imagine the insights he could share!

Hi Jo~

I have listened to Lloyd- both when I lived across the river from Windsor and when I lived across the Straits from Victoria. Thanks for this post and tribute. I'm going to go ahead and TWEET this to my friends...

He covered so many of the major happenings in the past century...the first man on the moon being one of them.  I'm going to do my best to go and see him speak. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity.
