A pioneer in figure skating broadcasting on CTV. Was in the booth for many Cdn. Championships, World Championships, Skate Canadas and the Calgary Olympics. Was in the booth with Debbie Wilkes and the late Brian Pockar the night Elizabeth Manley blew the field away and won silver. Liz Manley went in the booth afterward and famous received the white Steton hat. As a long time skating fan that memory stays with me.

Hey Norris,
Nice piece on Johnny Esaw - a true legend in Canadian sports. With respect to Hilliard Gates, it is true that he was very well known in Indiana racing circles, however, I believe the announcer in the scene from Hoosiers (if it's the scene from the state championship game) was that other legendary Indiana motorsports announcer, Tom Carnegie.
