Earl Seitz will sign off from his hall-of-fame broadcasting career on Dec. 31, marking the end of an era at CFJC-TV.

“Closing in on 74 years old and 54 years in broadcast, I feel I am long past the ‘best before date,’ Seitz wrote on Thursday on Facebook.

“It has been an incredible five-plus decades, including the last great 48 years at Broadcast Centre in Kamloops.”

Seitz, a 2019 inductee to the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame, said he has had the opportunity to report on many great events and people.

“I thank everyone and none more so than my family and the viewers and listeners," Seitz said. "Happy to be leaving on my own terms."

Within an hour of its posting, the Facebook note had received nearly 80 comments, messages of praise and congratulations for his coverage of generations of athletes and events in the Tournament Capital.
