Host of Hockey Night in Canada
Ron MacLean is one of Canada's most beloved sportscasters and a true icon of our national past time. As the authoritative, nimble host of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada, MacLean is one of the game's most eloquent ambassadors—and a welcome guest in millions of Canadian homes every Saturday night during the hockey season. MacLean's number-one Canadian bestselling memoir, Cornered, was released in 2011. A seven-time Gemini winner, the Red Deer native knows about more than just hockey (though he knows more about hockey than just about anyone else).
Cornered: Hijinks, Highlights, Late Nights and Insights
Ron MacLean has been a Saturday night tradition for twenty-five years. Known for his quick wit, arched eyebrows and encyclopedic hockey knowledge, MacLean is the skilled ringmaster of Canada's most watched weekly program. He has interviewed the greatest players, coaches and personalities of an era. He is a master of seeking the best in substance and entertainment from his guests, as well as from his opinionated and often irascible co-host, Don Cherry, on Coach's Corner. And he has never written a book--until now.
Canadian number-one bestseller Cornered is packed with inside accounts-- some inspiring, many hilarious-- from his early days as a part-time radio announcer and weather forecaster in Red Deer, Alberta, to his time hosting Hockey Night in Canada and the Olympics. Perhaps no other journalist has witnessed first-hand more Canadian sports milestones
