Spinning Tales With Ron MacLean

from Keenan Sorokan of PostMedia,

Chatting with MacLean is as easy as sitting down and catching up with an old friend. He speaks with an ease that would relax the most anxious person and recounts past experiences like you were standing right beside him when it happened. With MacLean continuing his hosting duties of Roger’s Hometown Hockey in Spruce Grove last week, he was able to provide more of those timeless stories from the sport that binds this country.

Like a quick bit of trivia that hit him while watching a San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks game a few weeks ago.

“The crazy six degrees of separation when we do this show,” he said of recent experiences on the show. “Every town we had just visited was represented in the game. The crazier story is that Joe Thornton is from St. Thomas (Ont.) and he’s known as Jumbo Joe. That’s a bit of homage to Jumbo The Elephant, who was killed on the train tracks in St. Thomas in 1885. Well, a week later we’re in Oakville, Ont. doing Hometown Hockey and the kid who picks the three stars for us, his great, great, great grandfather was the conductor on the train that killed Jumbo The Elephant. That’s just how it goes on that Hometown series.”

Afternoon Line- Ron MacLean On The Chances On Another Cup For The Pittsburgh Penguins

“I would never bet against Crosby, and I’m really impressed with Matt Murray’s goaltending. With Kris Letang coming back—that’s something they didn’t even have—I think there’s a very, very good chance. That team’s strong enough to do it again.”

-Ron MacLean of Hockey Night in Canada.  Luke Fox of Sportsnet has more comments from MacLean on Calgary, Toronto, Vegas Golden Knights and Connor McDavid.

Afternoon Line- Tara Slone

I now get to do my job alongside Ron MacLean, and he is the most generous broadcaster I have ever had the opportunity to work with. He’s so accomplished and naturally gifted. And he sees me as a peer, as someone he trusts, even though I’m so much more junior than he is. To me, that defines true leadership.”

-Tara Slone, co-host of Hometown Hockey.  More on and from Sloan at Canadian Business.

Ron MacLean Is Back As We Know Him

from Raju Mudhar of the Toronto Star,

“Some people say you don’t watch shows for the host, well, if that was true, we wouldn’t pay them what we pay them,” says Scott Moore, president of Sportsnet and NHL Properties at Rogers.

“I think Ron will have a major impact on ratings. We already saw it in World Cup of Hockey, because people want to hear what Ron has to say. His ability to talk hockey is different than most hosts . . . he’s just got an ease of being able to talk hockey because of his encyclopedic knowledge.”

That said, people didn’t follow MacLean to Sundays the past two years, with ratings averaging less than a half million for that night, which is considered disappointing, although it might help now that he links both weekend broadcasts.

When asked what all this says about hockey fans, and whether they need their coverage to be like comfort food, MacLean doesn’t fight that I’ve just basically called him mashed potatoes.

“Well, I think we want everything to be like that. I think we want everything to be like Norman Rockwell in the end. We flip back and forth between hero worship and witch hunts in all that we do. If you catch us on a good day we’re generous and loving, and if you catch us on a bad day, we’re critical to the point of cynical,” he says. “Obviously, I am just the beneficiary of that epic lesson. It is one of those tested and true formulas that I happen to get caught up in, but it’s because I’ve been here for 28 years. It’s as simple as that.”

Report- Ron MacLean Back As Host For HNIC And Sportsnet

from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star,

George Stroumboulopoulos won’t return as host of Hockey Night in Canada next season, sources tell the Star.

His replacement will be the man he replaced. Industry insiders say Ron MacLean is expected to return to the show’s No. 1 seat just two seasons after Stroumboulopoulos was hired with much fanfare in the wake of Rogers’ $5.2-billion acquisition of NHL broadcasting rights. Prior to that, MacLean occupied the job from 1986 until 2014. Since then, he has hosted Sunday night Hometown Hockey broadcasts and worked Saturdays alongside Don Cherry on Coach’s Corner. It’s expected he will continue those roles in addition to resuming the main HNIC hosting gig — the highest-profile position in Canadian sports broadcasting.

The ouster of Stroumboulopoulos marks a strategic about-face for Rogers, which sublicenses Hockey Night in Canada to CBC. In 2014, executives remade the iconic Saturday night show while speaking of the need to bring it to a younger demographic.

“We want to get a new breed of Canadian fans that get passionate about the games,” Scott Moore, president of Sportsnet and NHL properties, told reporters after Stroumboulopoulos’s hiring was announced in 2014. “I think George does that.
