The Hour's George Stroumboulopoulos stars on CBC Television
I'm a big fan of George and The Hour. George as in George Stroumboulopoulos (try to say that three times), who hosts the weeknight show on CBC Television at 11 PM.
The show is described on its website as a national current affairs show. "It's not a newscast. It's not a magazine show. Always unconventional. Often controversial. Never predictable."
Whatever you call it, I like it. Host George S. is honest and edgy, and he started his journalism career at a rock station in Kelowna, BC. From there he moved on to sports radio in Toronto and then worked as a producer at MuchMusic and hosted The Punk Show, The NewMusic, LOUD and MuchNews. He's a graduate of Humber College's Radio Broadcasting program in Toronto.
If you wanna watch The Hour live, it's taped in studio at the CBC Broadcasting Centre in downtown Toronto. Tapings are Monday-Wednesday from 4:30-5:30 PM and Thursday from 4:30-6:00 PM. For more information on getting tickets, go to their website.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
