It's been a couple of years, but Hurricanes This Week in making a comeback, this time podcast-style!
CJOC's morning show host Jordan Karst is the host of Lethbridge's most-popular sports podcast, 110% Podcast. It's a weekly podcast which began last fall and has grown in listenership.
The podcast has had a weekly Hurricanes segment pretty much each week, however this will be a show completely focusing on the Canes from start to finish. With the Lethbridge Hurricanes heading to the playoffs for this first time since 2008-2009, Jordan decided to make a special weekly edition of 110%, dedicated to the Hurricanes and bring back the well-known Hurricanes This Week title, which aired every Monday on 94.1 CJOC from 2007-2013.
The first edition of the new Hurricanes This Week will feature some of the old voices of the past Media Roundtable. With Jordan as the host, the guests for show number one will be myself, Dylan Purcell from the Lethbridge Herald and former Global LethbridgeTV Sports broadcaster Paul Kingsmith. Over the course of the next couple weeks, Jordan will have other voices coming on Hurricanes This Week.
Also on the first show, phone interviews with former Hurricane Zach Boychuk and Hurricanes General Manager Peter Anholt. Boychuk played on the last Hurricanes team that made the playoffs.
The show will be available for download around 8:30 pm MST from the podcast website, www.110percentpod.com.
Hope you enjoy the show and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
