Lee Major

Lee Major (Ivan Lemesurier), 85, on July 11. Major began his more than five-decade career in Yellowknife with CBC Radio in 1957. Early in his career, he made the move to CBC Winnipeg where he worked in both radio and television, hosting programs including “Major Progression,” “Music to Listen to Jazz By,” and “Red River Country.” He went on to co-host “2 Grumpy Guys in the Kitchen” on CKY-TV, alongside Don Percy, among other projects. Starting in the early ‘90s, Major resurfaced at CJNU 93.7 Winnipeg, a Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative. In his last years, he’d been retired to Campbell River, BC.
