The details

Mark Edward Dailey (August 1, 1953 – December 6, 2010) was an American-born Canadian television journalist and announcer. He was the host of 11 p.m. weeknight CityNews newscasts in Toronto, Ontario, and a prominent continuity announcer voicing interstitial program announcements on CITY-TV.


Dailey was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, to parents John and Rose-Marie (Genetta) Dailey and was one of three children (sisters Kathleen and Colleen). Dailey graduated from Ursuline High School and then studied law enforcement at Youngstown State University, in Ohio, worked as a state trooper (Ohio State Highway Patrol), and became a crime reporter for stations in Ohio (first at WNIO/1540 AM - now known as WYCL - and then ABC affiliate WYTV in the late 1960s) and at radio station CKLW in Windsor, Ontario before moving to Toronto in 1974. Prior to Citytv, Dailey worked at Q-107 and CHUM-AM and FM. Dailey worked at Citytv for 31 years. He was well-known for voicing the station's slogan: "This is Citytv, Everywhere!".


As a voice actor, Dailey voiced characters in the animated series Medabots, The Ripping Friends, Beyblade, Grossology, My Dad the Rock Star, Spliced, and others like Rescue Heroes and Storm Hawks. He also appeared (as a news reporter) in several Canadian films including Nicholas Campbell's Boozecan (1994), Claire's Hat, The Life Before This, and Childstar. He did voiceover work for one season of the Fishn' Canada Show (1999), and Magavision (1999) outdoor video newsletter.

Dailey is widely credited with delivering the title line during the chorus of the 1982 Rush song "Subdivisions", although he denied this. Neil Peart, who is the drummer of Rush, is actually the person who voices "Subdivisions" in the chorus of the song.


Dailey survived prostate cancer but announced during his 11pm newscast on September 9, 2010 that he had been diagnosed with kidney cancer. The cancer spread to his lungs and he died on December 6, 2010 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. He was 57 years old.
