Edward R Murrow Edward R. Murrow was arguably the most important and influential journalist in American history. His first-person radio reports from hot-spot European locales in the late 1930s gave his CBS listeners a sense of how the world was moving towards war. Murrow is most renowned for his compelling radio broadcasts from London during the Blitz. They always began, 'This...is London.' Murrow's distinguished career continued into the television era with See It Now and various specials. He famously took on Senator Joseph McCarthy when a friend, Laurence Duggan, committed suicide after McCarthy accused him of being a communist spy. (An examination of decrypted Soviet archives years later proved McCarthy was correct!) One ominous episode of See It Now examined the dangers of cigarettes--while the chain-smoking Murrow puffed away on his indispensible Camels. Murrow said he couldn't possibly go more than 30 minutes without a cigarette. He died in 1965, two days after his 57th birthday, of lung cancer. He was featured on a 29-cent stamp in 1994. The original stamp design showed him with a cigarette in his hand. It was rejected.

Foster Hewitt Canada's first pioneer sports broadcaster was diminutive Foster Hewitt. His first hockey broadcast was an amateur game between Toronto and Kitchener in 1923--which he did from the penalty box. He became the voice of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night In Canada when its radio broadcasts began in 1931. For the next 40 years Hewitt's familiar voice was the most famous in Canada. He regularly began his broadcasts with the phrase, 'Hello, Canada...and hockey fans in the United States and Newfoundland.' Hewitt smoothly made the transition to television in 1952--and his TV broadcasts were still simulcast on radio until 1963. That year his son Bill took over the TV broadcasts; Foster continued hockey broadcasts on the radio until 1970. Hewitt was lured out of retirement to call the historic Canada-Russia series in 1972. He was given the Order of Canada that same year. Hewitt died in 1985 at the age of 82.

Dave Hodge Pen-Flipping Incident March 14, 1987 proved to be the final day that Canadian boadcaster Dave Hodge was associated with CBC's Hockey Night In Canada broadcasts. Earlier that same day, CBC had cut away from a crucial match at the Brier (the national men's curling championship--an important event on the sports calendar in Canada) in favor of news programming, irking many Canadians. Later that night on HNIC, CBC did it again--refusing to show the five-minute overtime period between Montreal and Philadelphia to the national audience because it would have preempted the news. As is evident in this clip, Hodge famously couldn't contain his disgust with the network that had employed him for 16 years.
