@strombo will be doin this thang on @CNN this summer!

strombo_1009I was so happy to hear the news that our very own George Stroumboulopoulos (man that’s long) will be the host of a summer special airing Friday nights on CNN.  I love seeing people excel at their craft. If you’ve seen his talk show, you’ll know he has a way of allowing his guests and fans to feel like we’re all just hanging out, shooting the breeze. I really respect this style of interviewing.

I still remember watching Strombo on Much Music – I’m talking about the days when they actually showed music videos.  I vaguely recall a press conference where rapper Eminem and Dr. Dre were on the panel.  All I remember is Strombo asking a question and Eminem saying something along the lines of “Who is this guy?”.  That’s when I knew he was going places.  Living life fearlessly is the only way to do it.  Congratulations George! 

Wishing you all the best. Have a fantastic summer!

  1. Only an accomplished miuacisn could really understand the subtle, sometimes verbose communicative form he uses to allow us into his complex world of music. He tries to dumb it down for us to show how much he wants to exhibit humility as a strength, but one who states by example the very essence of change thru study etc after achieving pinnacle after pinnacle in his career simply stated; he’s in a class of his own.

  2. Yes, that is true. Their appearance on the Colbert rporet was for exactly that reason. However, I see the videos of Neil just running off stage to get to the truck or whatever after a show. I am sure the tragedies played a role. All I can say is that I am glad he is embracing the public eye to some degree.
