Zelda Young

Zelda Young, 73, on Sept. 27, following a courageous battle with cancer. Young was the host of “The Zelda Show” on Toronto’s CHIN Radio, starting in 1976, following in her father Sam Yuchtman’s footsteps, one of Toronto’s early Jewish radio producers and the first on Johnny Lombardi’s newly-licenced multicultural station when it launched in 1966. Young went on to helm the longest-running Jewish radio program in Canada for more than 30 years, a variety show featuring guest interviews, and news from Israel and around the world. Her radio show went on to be syndicated to stations in Vancouver and Florida until 2000. Young also hosted a television show on Citytv called “Tapestry” (later renamed The Zelda Young Show) from 1986 to 1993.
