In 1986, this Ottawa boy heard about a fabulous opportunity. The job as play-by-play man for the Saskatchewan Roughriders was open. He went after it and the people at CKRM took a chance on him. He spent the next twelve seasons calling Riders games and serving as CKRM's Sports Director. He was also TSN's Saskatchewan correspondent for that same period.
In 1997 he made the move to CJOB Winnipeg as the host of Prime Time Sports. In the early 2000's he reinvented himself as a talk show host and has been a mainstay on CJOB ever since, four years ago taking over the coveted slot once occupied by the legendary Peter Warren, and later, Charles Adler.
