The opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics are taking place in Vancouver tonight.
And lucky for us here at OK radio, we have one of our employees out there at this very moment, running around preparing the site for this very historic event for Canada.
Morrall Blake is one of our radio producers and he is in Whistler BC, volunteering for CTV.
He contacted us via email yesterday to give us an update on what he’s done thus far for the Olympics.
Blake has been escorting media crews to and from the sports sites, located at various places within Whistler.
He says that starting today, he has very long days of work, starting at 8:30 am and not finishing until 11:30 at night.
He adds that he has met some pretty fascinating people such as Jermain Franklin of TSN, as well as Michael Lansberg, the host of ‘Off the Record’.
Blake says CTV (Sponsor for Morrall to volunteer) have joined up with other TV crews to make one big media team.
Some of the TV crews he is working with are TSN, Sportsnet, and Much Music.
Blake will continue to provide us with any updates he has, so keep tuning into AtjiKangitut for further updates of the 2010 Olympics.
