“It is with profound sadness that we share the news Christopher Hyndman died early this morning,” reads a statement from the CBC. “We extend our deepest sympathies to Steven, family, friends, colleagues and his many fans at this most difficult time; our thoughts are with them all.”

CBC updated its website this afternoon with new information on Hyndman’s passing, reporting that his body was found without vital signs in an alley in Toronto’s east end shortly after 11 p.m. on Monday.

The series featured the 49-year-old Hyndman and co-host Steven Sabados discussing everything from home decor to health and fashion, while hosting various celebrity guests.

Steven and Chris has been pulled from the schedule, a CBC spokesperson confirmed with Playback Daily. CBC will address what show will replace it in the timeslot at a later date.

A new season of Steven and Chris was slated to premiere this fall.
