Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
The award-winning broadcaster and blogger Dave Gerry joins me now. He’s a well-known, long-time, memorable figure in local media here in Vancouver and its surrounding area. A lot of people have asked for him to be on, and why not, up until a couple of years ago, he was a regular fixture on channel 13 in all of its incarnations, culminating as co-host with Simi Sara on Breakfast Television. He was at channel 13 for twenty years, and has been in the television business for well over thirty years now. His very fine blog, Manic Tapas is at www.davegerry.wordpress.com. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Dave Gerry; Good morning, Mr. Gerry.
