New gig in the fall?

Oh God, I hope he's not going to be the new Flames host on Sportsnet.

Honestly, he seems like he'd be a nice enough guy, but just years and years of clickbait and intentionally controversial articles made it hard for me to take him seriously.

Calgary's PHWA chapter can ride to games and fit in one car now.

He's leaving the newspaper business altogether, so no, he's not going to the Athletic. I doubt he'll be on Sportnet either - he's not a good enough analyst even by their modest standards.

No, sounds like he's getting out of media altogether. Wouldn't surprise me if he went into marketing or event planning.

He does seem to enjoy being involved in charity type stuff - I think you are probably pretty close. Odd he'd wait until the Fall to announce something like that though.

I think this might be a job opening for Bingo. His articles are much better reads and more informative.

I assume he is going to Sportsnet full time. If he leaves the media business then great.

He's a trash journalist/broadvaster/radio personality but he did a lot of good charity stuff

Best wishes, and im glad I hopefully never have to hear his voice or see him again
