Ron maclean

Ronald Harold "Ron" MacLean (born April 12, 1960) is a Canadian sportscaster for the CBC who is best known as the host of Hockey Night in Canada and is also a hockey referee. MacLean was born in Zweibrücken, West Germany, where his father, an officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, was stationed at the Metz France Air Base. MacLean is of Scottish heritage on both his mother's and father's side. Fourteen months later the family moved back to Canada, and he grew up in Chester, Nova Scotia, Whitehorse, Yukon (for 5 years) and Red Deer, Alberta. His broadcasting career began in 1978 when he took a part-time position at CKRD-FM Radio (98.9), followed by duties at 850 CKRD-AM radio, and eventually a position doing weather with CKRD-TV. According to his biography he was called by the Program Director at the time (Martin Smith) to fill in for a sick friend who had recommended him. His initial duties were little more than pushing buttons and playing commercials, but was soon granted the opportunity to become a disc jockey. Ron MacLean was still in high school at the time. MacLean has worked on Hockey Night in Canada since 1986–87.
