Longtime Global BC anchor Steve Darling announced Friday he had been let go from the station.

“I’m sad to say this is my last breaking news story for Global BC,” he starts in a Facebook post. “After 18 years my anchor position has been eliminated and I will no longer be an employee of Global BC. I will deeply miss anchoring the morning news.”

Darling went on to say it was an “honour” to be in viewers’ living rooms each day delivering the news, and that he was proud of the work he had accomplished over nearly two decades with the station.

“I will forever cherish the friends I have made, people I have worked with and the loyal viewers who have supported me,” he said. “I am not sure what the future holds but I am confident it will be great.”

No further details were released about the reasons behind Darling’s position being eliminated.

Darling was the co-anchor of Global News Morning, alongside Randene Neill, traffic anchor Kaitlyn Herbst, and meteorologist Mark Madryga.

He started his career in radio as a producer before turning to the mic as a DJ with JRFM radio. He later worked as a sportscaster with CKWX and helped to launch News1130. Darling has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal for community service.

 

Steve Darlings will forever be in Vancouvers hearts.

The media is getting worse and worse, no one is doing any real investigating. Just a bunch of empty headed models reading approved headlines. 

No one asks tough questions anymore, no one tries at getting at facts and no spin. No wonder things don't get done anymore.

I was surprised when I first heard this as well, but he's been there for something like 18 years, and in the TV and radio business, that's a lifetime and extremely rare.

 

I'm sure he'll land on his feet somewhere.

It sure is rare..he should consider himself a rarety and very lucky..I was at 11 stations over 19 years.
