Shauna McLaughlinWhen I first trained at CJLS, we had to build the newscast on the weekend. Gary Wayne Nickerson trained me how to put together a news report, and the fundamentals on delivering it. I’ve talked over and over about how much I learned from him. I’m grateful to have worked with Gary before he retired. Thinking of his family and friends 💔Rest easy Gary 🙏🏼

Chris d’EntremontAs I approach 54 years of age, I can honestly say I’ve met some pretty awesome people and many of them have become friends. One such individual was Gary Nickerson. I was proud he was a coworker many years ago at CJLS, he taught me a lot about reporting local news. After I jumped into politics, he was always knowledgeable and a gentleman with his interviewing. After his retirement I know he was missed by his listeners, but popped up here and there for special events and doing some long form reporting with Quinn on Outside my Window. Gary, you will be missed by your family, friends and your community. May you rest in peace and look over us!
