Veteran broadcast journalist Frank Stanford has retired after 35 years at C-FAX Victoria, and a radio career of more than 40 years. Frank recently turned 60, and quietly announced he intended to hang up his mic and headphones.
Frank has been one of most respected radio newsmen in the BC capital, whose well-informed editorial viewpoints were aired on the C-FAX airways each Mon-Fri morning. For more than a year his newsroom duties included a weekday morning talk show from 9-10. Earlier this year Frank was honoured with a lifetime achievement award from his journalistic peers in the RTNDA. Victorians will miss his authoritative baritone voice, and his always excellent judgement on what should be considered news at any given hour.

We at PSR join with his many admirers in the listening audience in wishing Frank Stanford a long and happy retirement.
