My conversation with popular television and radio sportscaster Jackie Redmond, whose brilliant work and credibility at The Score and on Sportsnet led her south of the border where she is now a host at the NHL and MLB networks. Oh, and she’s got a national podcast as well!
We talked about her daunting transition from Canada to south of the border, how she feels hockey fans respond to her efforts in the US, feelings on the state of the NHL today and if she’s encouraged about their growth and marketing direction, why her departure from the sports landscape in this country felt like losing a first overall draft pick, how she feels about the young season and the seemingly endless cavalcade of goal-scoring, her candid take on the state of Toronto sports today, and the importance of truly enjoying what one does for a living.
