After 15 years as a radio host, Peterborough’s Catherine Hanrahan is retiring from radio to pursue a new career. Her last day will be July 12, 2018.

She made the announcement in her profile on Heather Doughty’s Inspire : The Women’s Portrait Project website at inspirethewomensportraitproject.com.

“I’m hanging up my headphones on July 12th and retiring from radio to pursue a new career,” Hanrahan writes.

“The past 15 years on the air in Peterborough have been rewarding in so many ways. I have had the opportunity to work with legends of the industry and legends in the making who were not only mentors but also friends who welcomed me into this community with open arms.

“It’s been a privilege to be invited into the homes, cars, and workplaces of the good people of this city day after day. There’s no other job like it and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.”
