With a career spanning 42 years, CKLW AM800’s Lynn Martin was a producer, reporter, newscaster and the first female talk show host at the station.

“It’s bittersweet,” she said of her retirement. “When you do what you love for so long it’s hard to walk away from it. But it was my time and my choice.”

Used to waking up at the crack of dawn, she said she’s looking forward to sleeping in, traveling, getting back into photography and volunteering.

Her final show was spent with various guests recalling their memories and favourite moments. Regular callers chimed in along with past producers, colleagues, friends and community leaders.

“I’ll miss all the callers, all the guests and our family here at AM800,” she said. “However, my family was always my top priority, talk-radio a close second.”
