Is Strombo The New Hockey Night Host...???

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie... yes...

His series of tweets...

If I'm not mistaken, I believe congrats may soon be in order for @strombo and @CoachesCornerCBC.

Lots of talk @strombo will this week be named primary face/host of the other guys' nat'l package.

And @CoachesCornerCBC is reportedly getting a new 2-yr deal. Sounds like Ron MacLean still involved but not as main man.

George Stroumboulopolous has been a host for MuchMusic, CBC, and CNN with some very stellar guests and conversations. So, if the big-time Habs fan gets the gig when Rogers takes the "Hockey Night" franchise next year for the next 12 years, it would be a huge coup for the network and the debut presentation.

An example:
((HT: CBC))

And this one...

According to The Score up north, the set-up is this...

"Hockey Night in Canada" will continue to air Saturday nights on CBC through a sub-licensing agreement Rogers made with the public broadcaster, although Rogers will retain editorial control.
