Puget Sound Radio is reporting that award-winning Steve Duffy and C-FAX have parted ways.
Duffy, a 44-year radio veteran in Victoria, was on-air this morning for his last shift, according to a Puget Sound Radio source. It is unclear if Duffy was advised his service was no longer needed before or after his final shift.
Duffy has been with Bell Media’s C-FAX AM1070 for the past decade and previously worked for OK Radio’s CKXM and 100.3 the Q.
Duffy wrote a daily sports comment on the C-FAX website; his last one was posted today where he talked about the old format of the NHL all-star game. He also covered the sports and the headlines twice an hour next to Al Ferraby.
Duffy’s termination is part of another wave of Bell downsizing across the province.
“Other recent changes at C-FAX News, include the full-time hiring of radio news veteran Kim Emerson to do the morning news. The appointment of former morning anchor Ryan Price to the News Director’s position, and the addition of Kamloops radio veteran Sandy Bell to the newsroom staff,” Puget Sound Radio wrote in their article.
