Another “sign of the times” in the broadcasting world, apparently.
CBC has taken Steven and Chris off the air. Production will wrap April 15th. The Mother Corp says it hopes to “work with Steven and Chris” again in the future.
The show’s producer had approached me about being profiled by the dynamic duo. We exchanged several emails and then communication from his end stopped abruptly. This isn’t unusual for media, really. Sometimes things come up. But it’s not usually the end of their job. So the great mystery has been unravelled and it doesn’t end well for those involved with the show. Steven and Chris will be fine. But the team behind the scenes is finding their industry shrinking by the minute. I wish them well.
