Don Newman

Tonight in the red chair, we've got Don Newman, one of Canada's great TV journalists and for decades the go-to guy for political junkies across the country. Those junkies will of course remember the signature sign-on that Don deployed at the beginning of each episode of Politics: "Welcome to the broaaaadcast"  (it's also the title of his new memoir, without the extra 'a's, of course). In honour of Don, we thought we'd take a look at some iconic sign-ons and sign-offs from over the years. Check them out, in our gallery above.

And don't forget to tune in to the show tonight at 7 p.m. on CBC to catch George's interview with Don.
