Noreen started as switchboard/receptionist at CFRN Radio Edmonton in 1960 and did some control room operating on the side. She moved to CFRN-TV in ’62 and soon was put in charge of all switchboard/receptionists at the station until her retirement in 1995. She was greeted by many at the 50th Anniversary of CFRN-TV in late 2004 as she had been the first and sometimes last person everyone saw when arriving or leaving the station and she got to know everyone and everyone’s family. One of the announcers she had to put up with in those days was a fellow who went by the name of Jim Roberts. She now has to put up with him as Jim Archibald, only this time as husband-in-training.
