Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire "
We're going to have a little bit of a departure in this segment over the next couple of months.
To counteract Paul Hill's feature, " Timeless Tuesday " ( or as I call it " Gold for the Geezers " ), I'm going to be forward thinking in this space and go with youth.
Every Tuesday from now through late January, Owen Sound District Secondary School student Alex Cunningham will be doing the sports comment.
Alex has come to us a co-op student and while most co-op students in the past have been relegated to the news side of things, Alex has expressed an interest in sports...and thus you'll hear lots of him.
Normally, I wouldn't do this unless I was confident in the youngster's ability, but I can tell you Alex has caught on rapidly, and equally as impressive, he's done so with minimal supervision.
Furthermore, I'm rather enjoying this scenario, not because it reduces any workload or burden- far from it- but rather Alex reminds me of what it was like to be in your teens, to be excited, then apprehensive, and then back to excited seemingly within a one minute span.
So tune in Tuesdays as we do a future watch with Off the Wire featuring Alex Cunningham
I'm Fred Wallace
