Stephen Andrew at CTV let go

Postby Jack Bennest » Mon Jul 15, 2013 8:46 pm

Sorry to be on same thread but it relates as to source

These are tweets from Vancouver Island CTV report Stephen Andrew:

"I look forward to greener pastures. Seeking legal advice so cannot comment until then."

FYI I am no longer with @CTVNewsVI or @cfax1070 details to come later."

In light of Mr. Andrew's valiant struggle with illness, I find the timing of his dismissal rather, unfortunate.

Tony Parsons has been a stellar draw for a long time here in BC. His numbers, like the rest of the Vancouver Market, have been drifting.

He deserves much credit, he carried the freight for years. I hope he enjoys his restaurant and his new life.

Mr. Andrew, whom I have not had the pleasure of meeting - I wish you a new gig as soon as you feel ready.

Hang in there.

Cheers.

Obviously the Tony Parsons story refers to Victoria - because he is still on CBC, Vancouver.

Not sure if I have seen ANY confirmation on the TP story. Seems happy in his work on CBUT

Not obvious to anyone but you I guess. If you'd said CHEK, my immediate response would have been YES , a while ago.

He still retains his ownership stake AFAIK.

According to a piece I read earlier today Tony Parson's has "had discussions with management" that will see him stay until the end of the year.

Thanks. Much appreciated.

Although I only worked with him a short time, I found him a delightful fellow. He was modest and man, what a pro. Cam Bell years with Tony, were outstanding.
