Host | The Early Edition
Rick Cluff has been the host of CBC Radio's popular morning show, The Early Edition, since September of 1997. Prior to that, Rick's voice was well known as that of an award-winning sports commentator and journalist. He has appeared as a host, reporter or commentator on a number of different CBC Radio and Television programs.
Leaving sports to return to news and current affairs is actually a return to roots for Cluff. He began his career with CBC Radio in 1976 as a reporter/editor in the national radio newsroom. Two years later he moved to the national sports department for what was supposed to be a "temporary" assignment. That temporary assignment lasted almost 20 years, during which time Cluff traveled more than one million air miles reporting on the accomplishments of Canadian athletes at home and abroad.
Cluff brings a wealth of experience to his current post, having worked in private radio prior to joining the CBC. His skills as an interviewer are well known. His formal university education is in political science and economics but he has always been a student of the political process. This served Rick well during his years covering amateur sports, especially the Olympics Games. He has covered seven Championships, the Canadian, British and U.S. Open golf championships and the Masters, as well as dozens of individual world championships from the South Pacific to the Arctic Circle.
Rick loves to play golf and has played and coached football at the post-secondary and semi-professional levels. He has a degree in Political Science and Economics from the University of Western Ontario and a degree in Journalism from Carleton University in Ottawa. Rick also has a diploma in Municipal Administration from Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology in Toronto.
