Bill Kelly hosted Land and Sea in Newfoundland and Labrador for eight seasons, in the flamboyant fashion that was uniquely his. He was hosting in 1990, the year of the worst cuts to the CBC this province has ever seen.
Programs were cancelled, including Land and Sea, and viewers all over Newfoundland and Labrador were enraged.
So was Bill Kelly.
Despite fighting his own battle with heart disease, Bill spearheaded the fight to save the show he loved. And he won.
