Veteran CBC broadcaster Knowlton Nash will be remembered today at a funeral in Toronto.
Nash died last Saturday at the age of 86 following a long battle with Parkinson's disease.
He had a 37-year career with the public broadcaster, including a decade as anchor of ``The National,'' CBC's flagship news program.
During his years as anchor between 1978 and 1988, ``The National'' became an unassailable jewel in the CBC's line-up. Current anchor Peter Mansbridge has said that Nash ``felt like family to his audience.''
The funeral will be held at Grace Church on the Hill at 2 p.m. ET and will be open to the public.
