News Release from CHEK Media Group, July 10, 2019

Joe Perkins joins CHEK News, taking on the role of hosting the station’s 6 p.m. newscast. Perkins comes at an exciting time as CHEK will be expanding the cast to one hour. Perkins came from CTV2 where he had been anchoring the 5 p.m. newscast, while hosting the Noon Show at CFAX.

We are excited and eager to have Joe Perkins join the CHEK family, as the company and newsroom continue to grow. This as CHEK celebrates its ten years as an independent employee-owned station.

Scott Fee, news director of CHEK News, says this is a natural fit at the right time.

“We strongly believe that Joe brings a dynamic energy to our shop and a connection to the community that perfectly aligns with our core values.”

Ben O’Hara-Byrne, who previously held the role, will continue to bring his dedication and skills to our newsroom in a new position.
