Sports anchor Dan Séguin retiring after 32 years with CBC Ottawa
Séguin covered Olympics, the launch of the Senators, and 67's and Redblacks titles
Dan Séguin is at the 18th hole of a long career in Ottawa sports journalism, and he's heading for the 19th.
Thursday marks Séguin's last day as CBC Ottawa's sports anchor, the end of a long career covering local sports that started when he was hired by CJOH (now CTV Ottawa) in 1981, fresh out of Ryerson University.
He moved to CBC in 1990 and has been here ever since, all while raising four kids.
He also travelled to Sochi to cover the 2014 Olympics.
His time with the CBC included a transition to filming his own stories in the late 1990s and time filling in as a news anchor.
Dan is the best, and well deserved! He was super patient with me in the early 90's cutting his sport highlight reels. Enjoy <a href="https://twitter.com/SeguinSports?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@SeguinSports</a>—@camnandlall
Our high school was across from the CBC building and Dan would interview me when he needed content for high school sports coverage. When I joined the media a few years later he welcomed me and was very supportive. All the best in this next chapter <a href="https://twitter.com/SeguinSports?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@SeguinSports</a>—@lisawallace29
