Date: Friday, January 19 2007
Don Hill is back ! Such is the glad news received by his friends yesterday in the following message.
Subject: New radio series on Leadership.
I'm back on-the-air with a new series of radio documentary programmes beginning this Saturday. Please pass this along.
What exactly is leadership? And what is leading in the 21st century?
It’s a question put to over 50 leaders in a series of conversations for INSPIRING LEADERSHIP, a new CKUA Radio Network series about leading in the 21st Century.
You’ll hear from people at the top of their game: Preston Manning, Elizabeth May, leading academics like Henry Mintzberg and Leroy Little Bear, business leaders such as Charlie Fischer and Eric Newell conversations that make a difference
Leadership comes in many flavours. Whether you’re managing in the middle, running a small business or a large multinational -- perhaps you’re a volunteer at the local community league or a coach -- INSPIRING LEADERSHIP speaks to contemporary leadership, best practices, and the challenge of leading. The documentary series begins January 20th at 8 AM on the CKUA Radio Network.
The 20 part series will be on-line, inclusive of many 'web extra' audio files and support materiel at http://ckua.com

Some, in the other half of the country ( ;-) outside Alberta, may not know that Don was a much admired host of a daily CBC call-in show (Wildroseforum) here in Alberta.
He was particularly successful in drilling to bedrock on the subject of the deregulation of our utility companies by the Klein government, and the heat was rising. And one day, with no prior public apprehension, he was G-A-W-N gone!
Mr. Rabinovitch et al still has some 'splainin' to do on that. All we have so far is a lame-a**ed statement that Prairie-CBC decided on a new... I dunno, a new path that didn't include Don, I guess.
CKUA radio, far as I know, doesn't reach beyond Alberta's borders. So I'm hoping you'll all join in- a mare usque ad mare- via broadband.
Don's friends wish him rave success.
