VANCOUVER – A familiar voice is set to take over the mic on CBC Vancouver’s morning show.

Stephen Quinn will become the new host of The Early Edition starting Jan. 2.

The CBC says he will take over from longtime host Rick Cluff, who will retire later this month after 41 years at the public broadcaster.

Quinn currently hosts the afternoon program On The Coast after eight years as a civic affairs reporter for CBC.

He says hosting The Early Edition is a dream job and he’s proud to be part of the team.

Gloria Macarenko, host of the noon show BC Almanac, will helm On The Coast.
