Rogers Sportsnet is pleased to announce Scott Morrison, one of hockey’s most respected and credible insiders, is returning to the network.
Morrison, a recipient of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award in 2006, is the new Executive Producer of Hockey, effective immediately. He will also appear as an insider on Hockeycentral and Sportsnet Radio The FAN 590 and FAN 960, as well as a feature writer for Sportsnet magazine and a contributor to sportsnet.ca.
“Scott Morrison’s leadership and proven track record in hockey helps raise the bar on all four of our platforms,” said Scott Woodgate, Vice-President of News and Information Programming, Rogers Sportsnet. “Adding him to our roster bolsters our ability to break news and to tell great stories.”
“I am pleased to be joining a great team. It feels like in many ways I am coming home again,” said Morrison. “I look forward to successfully growing the hockey brand on all four platforms.”
Maybe the Executive Producer Of Hockey can figure out a way for us, the US hockey fan, to watch videos at Sportsnet. Right now we are geo-locked from viewing.
In Scott Morrison’s upcoming book Hockey Night in Canada: My Greatest Day turns to 50 great hockey people and asks them to describe their greatest day in hockey.
An excerpt at CBC quotes Scotty Bowman on this greatest day:
“I really had to think about it, but I would say my last game. The fact I had made up my mind not to coach the following year. I’m very fortunate because most coaches lose their last game and get fired.”
Book also includes the stories of 49 others—including hockey players, management, officials and even a decorated Canadian General—sharing their greatest hockey days. It can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com.
