This meant I was also the morning news anchor and the news reporter — I was a one-man department. But it was a great place to learn about broadcast journalism. "I hadn't formally studied journalism, so once I got the job I bought every book on broadcast journalism I could find. At night I would study to be a broadcast journalist, and practice during the day." Bill was the co-host of MuchMusic's game show spoof ''Test Pattern (Test Pattern (TV series))'', along with Dan Gallagher. After a stint in Peterborough, Ontario, he joined Q107 (CILQ-FM) in Toronto, on a news program named "Barometer".
