Serge Plaisance, on Dec. 12, after a battle with cancer. Originally from Ville de Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Plaisance’s radio career began at CFLV-1370 Valleyfield and went on to include on-air and programming stops at Montreal stations CJMS 1280 AM, 96.9 CKOI, CKVL 100,1, CKAC, and Planète Jazz. He was perhaps best known for his run on CHOM from 1974-80. More recently, he had held various roles at Montreal French-language station Radio Ville-Marie (CIRA-FM) and Evanov’s AM 980 (CHRF-AM). Plaisance also lent his voice to numerous commercials and television programs, including Surprise sur prize, Action-Réaction and Double jeu.
