Must-See TV of a Radio Hall of Famer

It was a momentous week for the original voice of the Washington Capitals, Ron Weber — he got the call, from his broadcast peers, that he’d earned designation as best of the best, 2010’s Foster Hewitt Award winner. So he’ll head up to Toronto in November to be inducted into the broadcaster’s wing at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Yesterday Weber appeared on Comcast Sportsnet’s ‘Washington Post Live’ to discuss the honor with Ivan Carter. I’m of the opinion that we have not acknowledged Washington’s hockey heritage with anything close to the honor and remembrances it merits, and so appearances like Weber’s on local TV are special. And Comcast Sportsnet additionally announced yesterday that the outlet would be televising, live, all three of the Hershey Bears’ Calder Cup finals games in Texas this week — games 3 through 5, beginning Monday night. That and this Ron Weber interview amount to Comcast giving hockey some royal treatment in the early heat of summer. Good on them.
