Victoria’s CHEK Adds Joe Perkins, Loses Ben O’Hara Byrne
Seems CHEK’s new News Director Scott Fee is already making his presence felt in the market. He’s just hired away one of CTV Vancouver Island’s bright lights, anchor/reporter Joe Perkins (pictured above). Joe had been a member of the CIVI newsroom since arriving from CKPG-TV Prince George in late 2011.
As well as anchoring the 5 pm and 11 pm news nightly Perkins has also made his presence felt hosting the Noon Show (12:15 – 1 pm M-F) on CFAX 1070. In my opinion it was the bright light on the radio station’s talk schedule.
Concurrently a CHEK anchor since October of 2015 Ben O’Hara Byrne has been wiped from the station’s website. O’Hara Byrne had handled the 6 pm and 10 pm news Mon-Fri. Prior to arriving at CHEK Ben had been a foreign correspondent for first Global and then CTV News.
