When America Calls, George Answers
I once referred to him as Mr. Bergstrom, the substitute teacher from the great Simpsons episode "Lisa's Substitute". Being stifled by the regular cast of the CFNY Edge102 morning show, George Stroumboulopoulos subbed for a week and helped restore my passion for the genre. Then, when I was hooked, he was gone once more.
I mentioned at the time he just went national, getting a gig at MuchMusic. Since then, he's moved on to CBC where he now hosts the very cool show "The Hour". Now, America's calling and George is heading south for the summer. He's signed on to host the new ABC reality show "The ONE: Making a Music Star". He vows to return to CBC in the fall.
Who are we kidding? This is the beginning of the end of Stroumboulopoulos' career in Canada. Our brightest entertainment lights always end up working south of the border. I have no doubt that Mr. Bergstrom is off to Capital City. That's the problem with being middle-class. Anybody who really cares will abandon you for those who need it more.
