I 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!
