Hey Sports Fans,
Your Sports Director reporting for duty. My name is Smoke Stark and I am thrilled to be joining the CFUR radio team in a director position.
A little about me. I have been a student of UNBC for the past 8 years or so, capturing the title of Bachelors of Political Science and working on capturing the elusive title of Teaching Certificate. I have been a sports fan all my life. As a child I watched the Calgary Flames of the early 90’s with star pitbull forward Theo Fleury. Even though the Flames were my childhood team, I know beeld the blue and green of the Vancouver Canucks. To see the Sedins cycle the puck in the offensive zone is like watching a Rembrandt being painted or Hermione Granger cast a spell. Despite being a die-hard hockey fan, I still have more than enough room in my heart for other great sports such as: Football, Soccer, Basketball, MMA, and Golf.
What Makes Me Good for Sports Director?
As well as having a love for all sports, I have been reporting on sports for more than three years now. I have a sports show on our very own CFUR 88.7fm station called “ The Smoke Show”. On the show we discuss all the big events for the week in the world of sports. Not only do we discuss the events with our panel of guest co-hosts, we also bring in guest experts and pros from around the sports world via phone interview. I have also been the sports writer for Over the Edge newspaper around UNBC for the past year. These experiences have given me a great opportunity to hone the skills necessary to be the best sports director possible.
What’s in Store for the Summer?
This summer, CFUR’s sports program is going to be amped up with more live shows and guest interviews than ever before. Since the Women’s World Cup of Soccer is in Canada this year, we will be following the tournament closely and trying to get interviews with personnel close to the action. On top of that, starting in June, we will have a focus on a local sports team every week so that our fans can connect with the Prince George sports community in a way that has never happened before. Lastly, we will have more fan interaction than ever before with live phone-in to The Smoke Show, as well as give fans the chance to participate through social media. More information on those outlets will be coming in the following weeks.
Live Long and Prosper Sports Fans!
