AUDIO: Interview with Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston


JG Sports Media’s latest audio interview guest grew up in Cobourg and now covers the NHL for Sportsnet…Chris Johnston.

Chris Johnston

We talked about Chris returning to Cobourg for the Rogers Hometown Hockey broadcast in early January, the pride he felt and enjoyment he had and why it might end up being his favourite day of 2020.

In this interview, we also discuss Chris going from watching Hockey Night in Canada with his family when he was young to appearing on the show each week during the second intermission Saturday Headlines segment; what it’s been like working from home since the NHL season was paused; making the most of the opportunity to visit his dad in Cobourg more often; keeping up with covering the ever-changing NHL news; what it’s going to be like working in the hub cities Toronto and Edmonton; the playoff format, draft lottery and some of his favourite NHL cities.

NOTE: While we wait for local sports to return following the COVID-19 pandemic, a big part of JG Sports Media’s website content will be audio interviews, like this one.

Guests will include representatives from local sports organizations as well as other notable guests, many who have ties to this area and even some who don’t.
