From my earliest memories, watching, playing, or talking sports has been at the centre. For two decades I have lived my dream of working at a national sports network. I was given opportunities to host Olympic Games, NHL games and special events, interview Tiger after a career shot, and work so many Memorial Cup tournaments. It’s in that wake of history that I have decided to pursue a challenge beyond Sportsnet. This decision involves many factors and soul searching and it arrives with layers and layers of emotion. As a Day 1’er I have always carried an extra pound of pride and it’s difficult to walk away from that. I would like to recognize the producers, directors, camera operators and production crews I was blessed to work with. For many of us, this has been a long, incredible journey. It is one that I hope we are able to walk together again down the road. For now I get to try something different. Just know that Sportsnet is special and you are lucky. I know that because I was for 20 years.
