Ian Hanomansing Hosting Cross Country Check Up

Pleasantly surprised to hear Ian Hanomansing hosting Cross Country Check Up on Sunday.  He is filling in for Duncan McCue for the next few months.

He is excellent as host and great with callers.  Piece of trivia.  Did you know that Ian is a big music buff and hockey nut?  He designed a board game called Big League Manager which is officially licensed by the NHL and was voted as a "Best Bet" by the Canadian Toy Testing Council.

CBC should make him the main anchor of the National.

Totally agree on making him main anchor.  He does a great job of reporting the news in an unbiased manner, in my opinion.

Ian Hanomansing should have been Peter Mansbridge's SOLE replacement. He's head and shoulders above every other presenter at the CBC, and his talents are being wasted on weekends. Though I got the sense from some of his comments when he first started with the 4-some anchor team that he would rather live in Vancouver.

ED1. In total agreement with you.

Re: Ian Hanomansing Hosting Cross Country Check Up

in my opinion, the present anchors, "on the national", are mere lightweights compared to ian. it's a shame his talents are going to waste. he has the ability to shine (as the only anchor).
meanwhile, how a certain ctv news anchor (one of several and who has been mentioned here before) ever made it to the "big leagues" (with his annunciation problems) still baffles me (especially when conveying "news" has never been so important). wouldn't being understood be an important aspect of their license (when it comes to news)?
in both cases, i ask the question, what is management thinking?

Canucks play-by-play announcer Jim Robson was offered the H.N.I.C. position in the mid-70s on the condition that he would move to T.O. and he replied "hah, hah, hah, hah, hah -- N.F.W" (words to that effect)
