LATREMOUILLE also hosted on TV, including CBC shows "LET'S GO" and "NEW SOUNDS" and weather reports on then-CTV affiliate CHAN-TV (BCTV). He established his "LATREMORNINGS" morning show with CATHY BALDAZZI (later his wife) in 1984, hosting at CFUN, CKKS (KISS FM), and CKCL (CLEAR FM) before retiring in 2007. Brother KELLY LATREMOUILLE is also a radio personality at NEWCAP Classic Hits CHLG (LG 104.3)/VANCOUVER.
