Goodbye, Don Wittman

Don Wittman, one of CBC's track voices for as long as I can remember, has died. He had terminal cancer, yet I saw him announcing last year's Canadian nationals at Windsor, so he must have worked as long as he physically was able.

I've never been shy about my opinion of him as a track announcer--I didn't think he was very good. He did come off as an unusually nice man, and it will be very strange to see a CBC track broadcast without him. He will be missed.
