Two of CKNW Radio's long-time employees won't be with the station this autumn.
Legislature reporter Sean Leslie announced on his Facebook page that he'll soon turn off the radio microphone after 14 years at the station and 25 years in the radio business.
In his Facebook post, Leslie also revealed that CKNW's long-time senior program director, Ian Koenigsfest, was "let go" on August 13.
Leslie has hosted weekend shows for many years, but he's about to change careers.
"I will post details of my new gig and contact info next week, as I will continue filling in for Jon McComb until August 21st," he wrote. "Many of my FB friends are no doubt here because I'm a media guy, so feel free to unfriend me as I leave the biz-no hard feelings!"
Leslie is based in Victoria and his wife is listed in the B.C. government's online directory as a communications officer with the Ministry of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation.
Koenigsfest had been with the station for 24 years.
During Koenigsfest's tenure, the station changed its lineup of hosts to try to appeal to a younger audience.
Simi Sara, Michael Eckford, and Justin "Drex" Wilcomes were all given weekday shows following the departure of Christy Clark, Philip Till, and Bill Good.
Over the past 15 years, CBC Radio 1 has offered stiff competition to CKNW, which described itself as the "Top Dog" for decades.
Koenigsfest is also president of RTNDA Canada, which speaks on behalf of private radio and television news operations across the country on newsroom-related issues.
In that role, Koenigsfest criticized the arrest of CTV news reporter Tom Walters while he was covering protests in Ferguson, Missouri.
