Media Booth / Gondola

I just had a thought, the Media Gondola at the Air Canada Center is named after Foster Hewitt, would it be classy if we named ours after Don Wittman?

The man was a legend.

Whole heartedly agree that would be a terrific tribute to one of Winnipeg's finest broadcasters.

Wittman had a distinct voice that is sorely missed on CBC.

That is a nice thought, although I'm a bit torn about whether it should really be named after Ken Nicolson. They each certainly deserve commemoration. Maybe the one in the Bomber stadium could be named for Wittman and the one at MTS for Nicolson. Friar used to tell it the way it was -- always remember how much he hated the referee Wally Harris! He did not mince words.

Definitely Wittman for the MTS Centre press box!

I like the idea of honoring both Wittman and Nicolson.

It's a nice thought. I can't really see any opposition to it, though I'm so some will present itself.

The MTSC media centre is already named after Matt Frost, former Director of Communications.

There's another Moose logo to get rid of!
