  • Print

TORONTO -- East Coast producer Bill Langstroth, who hosted the CBC-TV country music series Singalong Jubilee and was once married to country singer Anne Murray, has died. He was 81.

His friend, musician/producer Ron MacNutt, says Langstroth died Wednesday afternoon in a Moncton hospital of an undisclosed illness.

Langstroth started working at CBC-TV in Halifax in the 1950s, first as a co-ordinating producer and then as a series producer.

He worked on The Don Messer Show and Singalong Jubilee, where he first met Murray. The two dated for many years and married in 1975. They had two children together and divorced in '98.

Langstroth was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of fame in 2011.
