During the NHL playoffs each spring, the duo, as well as the large crew of producers and technicians that support them, work so hard, so often, it seems as if they might actually sleep in the CBC Sports studios, especially when one of those classic overtime games has just entered into its sixth hour of live-to-air broadcast.
With the Stanley Cup Final drawing to a close, Cherry and MacLean are likely already looking forward to the 2010/2011 season. But there is a very good chance they won’t mind putting in all those long hours next year, as Boston Pizza has confirmed it will be opening a new franchised location in the CBC building in downtown Toronto in the near future. The new unit promises to give CBC employees and visitors to the national broadcaster’s headquarters a chance to enjoy Boston Pizza’s full menu in a unique environment.
An official opening date has yet to be released, but company representatives did tell foodserviceandhospitality.com that, “As Canada’s number 1 casual-dining brand, we’re ecstatic to bring Boston Pizza to the heart of Ontario sports fans in downtown Toronto and to be able to work with a great brand like Hockey Night in Canada and CBC Sports to develop unparalleled unique experiences for our guests.”
