A former VOCM broadcaster has passed away.
Rod French passed away suddenly at his home in Mount Pearl on Monday. He was 73.
French worked in the VOCM Newsroom during the 1970s, but he is perhaps best known for his colour commentary during coverage of Newfoundland Senior Hockey League games alongside local broadcast legend, George MacLaren.
He served as Director of the VOCM Creative and Production Department in his later broadcast career.
The funeral arrangements are being handled by Barrett’s Funeral Home in St. John’s.
