Veteran Edmonton broadcaster Eric Neville, also known as Klondike Eric, has passed away. Neville had begun work at CFRN in 1963 and was known for his work on Popcorn Playhouse and as the weatherman for the 6 p.m. newscast.
Former CFRN manager Bruce Hogle described Neville as outgoing, friendly and someone who always had a smile on his face. “He epitomized everything good about television and good people and having a great time.
“He was held in high regard not just by the parents and the grandparents and things like that but by business people and by educators and by the police. Here was a man who knew children, loved children but also the community as a whole and really gave back all of his life.”
