(Vancouver Sun) CFAX listeners were no doubt perplexed. Last summer, one of the Victoria radio station’s news anchors, Sheila Gardner, signed on with a brand-new name.

Sheila Gardner was now James Gardner.

“For many, this might be a bit of a surprise and some may find it confusing at first,” Gardner wrote in a statement carried on the Puget Sound Radio website. “However, for me, it is the conclusion of a long and sometimes painful journey to a future of happiness I have never felt before.”
