It is with great sadness that we advise that Steve Cairns, General Manager of Radio TAB, passed away overnight, aged 53.
Steve rejoined Radio TAB in May this year following Graham Kemp's retirement. After 19 years in Victoria working for RSN, this was a return 'home' for Steve, who coincidentally worked the very first racing shift on 4TAB in 1990.
Chief Operating Officer Barrie Fletton said:
"Steve brought with him a fantastic enthusiasm and in a very short time has made a significant and enduring positive impact at Radio TAB.
I will miss his good humour, knowledge and capability, and I know he will be greatly missed by all of his colleagues and members of both the radio industry and racing industry.
Our deepest sympathies go to Steve's wife Nadia, his family, colleagues and friends."
