There will be no more Steven and Chris without Chris Hyndman: Steven Sabados made the announcement Friday afternoon on Facebook.
“I wanted to write and send a sincere thank you to everyone who has reached out and offered love, support, and words of encouragement over these past few weeks.Â
As you can imagine, this has been an incredibly difficult time and I truly appreciate the compassion you’ve so generously offered.
Some of the best times in my life have been at the CBC â€” creating an incredible show with Christopher by my side and a fantastic team behind the scenes. That being said, it’s impossible for me to even imagine continuing the show without him. The CBC understands and supports my decision 100 per cent and I hope you can as well.Â
To all of you who shared our fabulous journey over the last eight years, as Christopher would say, â€œThank you, thank you, thank you.â€Â
The announcement comes weeks after the death of his on-air and real-life partner Hyndman was found without vital signs in an alleyway near the couple’s Toronto condominium. It’s believed he stepped off the terrace surrounding their condo while sleepwalking.
A native of Newfoundland, Hyndman teamed with Steven Sabados over 15 years ago to form The Sabados Group Inc.; the group specializes in event planning, product launches and set design.
OnÂ Steven and Chris, the coupleâ€”along with expert guestsâ€”offered a unique take on decor, beauty, health care, relationships, food and parenting. CBCâ€™s media site notesÂ Steven and ChrisÂ airs in more than 40 million households in the United States. Sabados and Hyndman starred in HGTVâ€™sÂ Designer Guys, Design RivalsÂ andÂ So Chic with Steven and Chris.
