CHCH's sports anchor has Covid

The Hamilton Spectator is reporting that Bubba O'Neil, CHCH's 6pm news sports anchor, is in the hospital with Covid. The story says he got really bad on Friday and decided to go to the hospital, where he tested positive. I guess The Spec got the scoop, since they posted the story online just before tonight's CHCH News at 6. However, CHCH did mention it on air tonight, before the sports segment. They said Bubba is in hospital, but not in the ICU.

Here's the story from The Spec: https://www.thespec.com/sports/hamilton-region/2021/04/27/chch-sportscaster-in-hospital-with-covid.html

All the best Clint "Bubba" O'Neil, hope that you have a speedy recovery and back in the CHCH sports chair real soon! https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/smile.png

It's behind a pay wall, but the Spectator is now saying there is an outbreak involving a variant of concern at CHCH, with two employees testing positive for covid. I didn't watch CHCH tonight, did they do a newscast?
