Guild mourns death of CBC producer Danny Malanchuk

Guild members are mourning the death of CBC Ottawa producer Danny Malanchuk, who died early Tuesday morning from complications following heart surgery.

During his 27 years at the CBC, Danny was an active Guild member who served on local executive committees and attended national meetings and conventions as a delegate.

“The Guild has lost a strong voice,” says Marc-Philippe Laurin, CBC branch president of the Guild. “”Our hearts go out to Danny’s family as they deal with this tragic loss. May it comfort them to know that we are all mourning
his passing. Danny was a friend, colleague and respected advisor in both Guild and CBC matters. He was a huge presence in Ottawa and also across the country because of the nature of his work. He will be sorely missed.”

“Danny blended humour with his insight about Ottawa politics, and he was always available for Guild business,” says Lise Lareau, national president of the CMG. “I know he could be counted on to listen to members’ problems and give them solid advice because of his years of experience. He was such a wonderful colleague on so many levels. It’s such a shocking loss.”

Danny joined CBC news in 1980 as a writer/broadcaster on regional TV programs produced in Ottawa, moved to CBOT and then became one of the founding producers at Newsworld in 1989. In 2000, Danny moved to the Parliamenary Bureau as a field producer.

He leaves his wife, Lorna, and son, Andrew, 12. Funeral services will be held on Saturday June 2 at 10:30 am at St. Matthias Anglican Church, 555 Parkdale Avenue in Ottawa. The family has asked that donations be made to the Ottawa Heart Institute.
