PHOTOS: Rosalie Trombley Sculpture Unveiled

Sunday September 17th, 2023, 2:58pm


The Rosalie Trombley sculpture was unveiled Sunday morning on Riverside Drive as part of Open Streets Windsor.

Trombley started her career at CKLW as a part-time switchboard operator and receptionist, then accepted a position in the music library, and after learning the ins and outs of how a Top 40 radio station worked – moved into a full-time position as CKLW’s music director.

In her position as a music director, she shaped many lives through the power of music. For the listener, she gave them hits that became part of their childhood and core memories, and for artists, she had a huge influence on their careers. It’s been said that artists from all genres would sit on the couch at CKLW waiting for a chance to meet with her to check out their music.

Trombley passed in 2021, but her legacy and influence still lives on today. She has been inducted into the Motor City (Detroit) Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Canadian Music Week Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

The statue is located across from Caesars Windsor along the riverfront.
