Dale Curd

Have you ever met someone who in minutes makes you feel so comfortable you feel like they are your best friend and trusted confidante?

Genuine, intuitive, approachable, wise and articulate; Dale Curd is in his third season as Host of the acclaimed CBC documentary television show Hello Goodbye, in which he engages strangers in conversations as they prepare to greet or see off loved ones at Toronto’s Pearson Airport.


The show is so deeply rooted in common experience that it is truly, persuasively poignant, but immensely uplifting, too. Much of that has to do with Curd’s natural ability to draw closely-held stories and unexpressed feelings out of people.” 

– John Doyle, Globe and Mail television critic.
