Don’t Feel Sorry For Ron MacLean

from the CP at The Hockey News,

Who was the big winner in Rogers' shakeup earlier this week of "Hockey Night in Canada"?

Some might conclude it was George Stroumboulopoulos. Indeed, the 41-year-old CBC talk show host and former MuchMusic VJ has been handed what is arguably the best on-air TV job in Canada—host of "Hockey Night in Canada." The iconic TV franchise is so ingrained in Canadian culture it is right up there with the Mounties and the Maple Leaf.

Those feeling sorry for departing host Ron MacLean, however, can put off the pity party. By this time next year, MacLean may be seen as the big winner.

MacLean has been offered about as sweet an after-deal as just about anybody departing a top job could hope for—the chance to be a key part of a whole new night of a famous sports franchise. It's a bit like being asked to go from "Monday Night Football" to "Sunday Night Football," a U.S. transition where the new night now routinely outdraws the original Monday showcase.
