The evolution of Glenn Payette's St. John's sign-off
The man, the myth, the meme
Where did it come from? How did it happen? And why?

The veteran CBC reporter was memed this week, and it got the St.John's newsroom thinking about how it all started.
"I don't know how it started or when it started," Payette said.
Not much help.
So, CBC librarian Carolyn Atkinson dove into the archives to put together a montage charing the evolution of 'Glenn Payette, CBC News, St. Jooohnnnn's.'
