Condolences to family and friends of former CJAD-A/MONTREAL talk host NEIL MCKENTY, who died SATURDAY (5/12) after a short illness in MONTREAL at 87.
MCKENTY, a former Jesuit priest, hosted "EXCHANGE" on CJAD in the 1970s and 1980s. He left CJAD in 1985 to write a book, returning to broadcasting on CTV affiliate CFCF-TV/MONTREAL in 1987-1990. Most recently, MCKENTY wrote four more books and maintained a blog, with the last entry on MAY 1st informing readers that he was ill but expected to be back soon; his last full post was on APRIL 27th, a discussion of CANADA's participation in the Afghan war.
