Peter Gzowski: the man who made it happen
"In a country forever in search of its own voice,
Mr. Gzowski is a stand-in for Canada, as curious as he is courteous, interested in hockey heroes and indigenous customs and all the forgotten chapters of a national history and culture that he constantly challenges his listeners to cherish and defend." - The New York Times
When news came of Peter Gzowski's death in early 2002, the tributes poured in. For days, journalists, broadcasters, politicians and ordinary Canadians shared their memories of this exceptional man who had become, during his long career as a broadcaster, the best and truest voice of Canada. They remembered his wonderful interviews that made listeners feel as if they were eavesdropping on intimate conversations between two friends. They remembered Peter's passion for Canada's geographical and ethnic diversity and his charming personality. They remembered his hard work on behalf of literacy, and his strong advocacy for the disenfranchised. They remembered his gravelly voice and deep, warm chuckle.

Peter Gzowski
Photo by: Russell Monk One of Canada's most respected public figures, Peter Gzowski has distinguished himself through personal intergrity and professional excellence during his celebrated career. He is perhaps best known for his 15 seasons of hosting CBC Radio's Morningside, during which he has become a household name in Canada with his insightful and sincere approach to broadcasting. More than an eminent broadcaster and author, Peter is a Canadian cultural icon who is admired and trusted by millions. Since 1986, he has raised over $5 million for community based literacy organizations through his Golf Tournaments for Literacy. They have been played in every province and territory, and feature poetry, readings, and live music. It is to his further credit that proceeds from the sale of High Flight will support Canada's Frontier College in its ongoing work for literacy. All Canadians, particularly those in the Air Force community, may rightly appreciate his warm recitation of Magee's precious verse.

An Island Footnote
Much has been written and said about writer and broadcaster Peter Gzowski in the days following his death on the afternoon of Thursday, January 25. He was treasured by his family, friends and colleagues and loved by faithful listeners to his morning radio shows This Country in the Morning and Morningside Peter was at heart a writer. His editor, Douglas Gibson, recalls that often an attractive young woman would approach Peter, make admiring remarks to his delight then bring him abruptly to earth by saying that her mother was his biggest fan. There seem to have been thousands of these mothers and other biggest fans in every corner of Canada. On CBC radio Peter found his audience. His warm, witty and intelligent broadcasts had great ratings over a million listeners, numbers unique in CBC regular program history. There is an island footnote to Peter Gzowski's remarkable story: On an early spring day In 1964, he tagged along with his oldest son, Pete Jr. and Pete's pal, Dave Amer Jr. on a family trip to Ward's Island. The kids met and played together on Washington Avenue where the Gzowskis lived and where David Sr.and I rented an apartment that winter. It was May, time to say goodbye to our island tenant and reclaim our house at 36 Lakeshore. On that little outing, Pete Sr. got a crush on the island, so he and Jenny bought their own cottage, with a crooked floor, at 8 Second Street. (Peter's younger daughter Maria, her husband Scott Zufelt and their daughters Stephanie and Samantha continue to live in the now-renovated house.)

Peter Gzowski is now into his fifteenth and final season as host of the program Maclean's Magazine called "the best and most Canadian thing in Canadian broadcasting, radio or television". Every weekday morning from 9 a.m. until noon (9:30 to 12:30 in Newfoundland), Gzowski hosts a three-hour coast-to-coast-to-coast feast of intelligent, engaging conversation, debate, personal essays, music and drama. On a typical morning he might wrestle with a panel over the proposed changes to the social safety net, discover a new Canadian author, conduct a Cross-Canada hootenanny, do a little gardening, check in with reporters in every province and both territories, read a poem, share a letter, listen to some music, prod a premier or learn to land a plane. More than one million Canadians listen every day. Gzowski, winner of seven ACTRA awards, and a 1997 Peabody Award for his Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting, began his radio career in 1969 and, in 1971, became host of This Country in the Morning , the program that preceded Morningside on the network and set the stage for the three-hour daily current affairs time slot that is now occupied by Morningside.

Conference Speakers PETER GZOWSKI Author/Broadcaster
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Author, broadcaster, columnist, champion of literacy Peter Gzowski remains one of Canada's best known voices. Since stepping down as host of CBC Radio's Morningside - the program Maclean's magazine called "the best and most Canadian thing in Canadian broadcasting, radio or television," - Peter Gzowski has been as busy as ever. Beginning in the Fall 1999, Peter has very much enjoyed performing his new duties as Chancellor of Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. On CBC Television and CBC Newsworld, the Gemini-nominated Gzowski in Conversation will soon begin production for its third season. A series of half-hour and hour-long programs features Peter with some of our most interesting personalities - from Anne Marie Macdonald to Conrad Black to Wayne Gretzky to Donald Sutherland. A musical spin-off of Gzowski in Conversation - an exciting new CD entitled Gzowski in Compilation - was launched in October. The CD features music by 15 of Canada's top artists and performers - from Jann Arden to Murray McLauchlan and proceeds from the sale will go to Peter's chosen cause - Canada's oldest adult literacy organization, Frontier College.

"At the Galt Collegiate, there was a wonderful man named Frank Ferguson," says Peter Gzowski. "He had a huge impact on me and hundreds and hundreds, maybe thousands of other kids. "Mr. Ferguson, as I called him all his life, had a great gift of illumination. He so obviously loved the works he taught that you would put your own natural aversion to Shakespeare aside and say, ‘If he can get this enthusiastic it must be something.’" Gzowski calls Ferguson the Mister Chips of the GCI: "People liked him. He had a wonderful, joyful air." Ferguson did something unusual for a teacher – he was a CCF candidate. Gzowski remembers that this shocked a number of people, including his stepfather, who thought these "radical socialists" shouldn’t be allowed in the school. Ferguson’s political activism didn’t come up in the classroom. "He just talked about the writers we were studying," Gzowski reports.

Martin O'Malley and Blair Shewchuk, CBC News Online So engaging were some of Peter's Gzowski's radio interviews that many people who were listening to them on their car radios would drive to the shoulder of the highway or park by the curb on a leafy street so they could better pay attention to what was being said. This Country in the Morning and Morningside , his personal writings such as The Private Voice , or his elegant true stories of teams and athletes and adventures. He was also a reluctant and uncomfortable television performer on programs such as 90 Minutes Live and . He was a champion of literacy, raising millions for the cause through his annual golf tournaments called the "Peter Gzowski Invitationals" held across the country, even on the ice and the snow of the Arctic (using orange balls). He died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or what is more commonly known as emphysema, "the smoker's disease." Gzowski has often discussed and written about his addiction to cigarette-smoking.

Peter Gzowski
Author, broadcaster, columnist, champion of literacy - Peter Gzowski was one of Canada's most celebrated and most loved voices. The former host of CBC Radio's Morningside From the days when he worked as a student journalist (he was born in Toronto in 1934) at The Varsity he had a spectacular career in Canadian newspapers (Toronto Star columnist), magazines (Maclean's, etc.) and CBC Radio and TV. He was perhaps the best-known journalist of his generation and was the recipient of many awards including seven ACTRA awards, as well as the Peabody Award for Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting. He was promoted to Companion of the Order of Canada and was the recipient of honorary doctorates from twelve Canadian universities. His newest book, called "A Peter Gzowski Reader", is an anthology of his best writing over a career spanning more than fifty years, starting with pieces from his time writing for The Varsity, and his early days as a young reporter caught in a forest fire. A cornucopia of Gzowski, selected by Peter himself.
