98.5’s Number One Morning Show host Paul Arcand announced this morning that he will not renew his wireless contract when he completes it in two years.
The 62-year-old host, who is chairing the show Since you have to wake up For 20 years, she wants to develop other projects including documentaries and TV projects.
This news comes because the program is once again the most listened to radio program in Canada according to the latest Numéris poll.
“I would really like to thank you; it is very touching to know you are there,” explained the host who advised his superiors at Cogeco that he would be leaving his position in two years.
“Our discussions go way back in time with Paul. We have already warned that he does not want to renew his contract at the end of his term in two years. Paul is a must on the radio and we will enjoy every moment with him. Cogeco commented on the rest of the things to be announced in due course.
Time for big starts at 98.5. The announcement of Paul Arcand leaving in two years is added to the announcement of Paul Hood who will leave the station after 15 years of loyal service on June 19 and Bernard Drenville who recently announced that he will stop political work – after 4 years and more than 1,000 stories – to return to politics under the colors of CAQ .

While his collaborators sang to him This Is Just a Farewell Prank during the Thursday morning show, Paul Arcand took the opportunity to set the record straight and put an end to rumors of his impending departure with a laugh.
“First, I’m not dead and second, I’m not leaving tomorrow afternoon, I’m not a candidate for the CAQ, nor of Eric Duhemé, nor of the Liberal Party, nor of Quebec Solidere, before the rumors…” M will leave in two years, elections in two months. Anyway, that’s what I said.”
