August Update: Better Late Than Never

The frequency of my monthly updates has been wanting so far in 2019, but I do have a good reason. All of the extra content I have been producing and hosting for Global News has taken up the majority of my time and focus throughout the spring and summer.

Although I did get an opportunity to travel to Newfoundland for a wedding in mid-July and I was able to get many hours of spectacular hiking in throughout the trip.

I mentioned in my last post in June that there would be some addendum pieces to the What's Your Fitness Age series about senior fitness. I travelled to McMaster University in Hamilton to produce a story on the MacSenior fitness program.

After learning about the program, I couldn't pass up the opportunity for another fitness challenge where I teamed up with a member of the program and we took on Ross and his senior partner. Here's the link to that piece.

Earlier today, I had a meeting about producing another fitness series, this one will be called The Culture of Fitness. I'm still at the exploratory stage, but I hope to start shooting this new series in September and I will have some more info in next month's update.

Sticking with fitness, it is Rogers Cup week in Toronto and Montreal. Yesterday, I put together a preview story from Aviva Centre for Global News teeing up the all-Canadian affair between Bianca Andreescu and Genie Bouchard.

Also, on Sunday, I had an opportunity to be a "Ball Man" during an actually qualifying match at the Rogers Cup.

2. Lots of stuff to remember, especially when you’re on towel duty @TennisCanada

I am currently editing the full feature and that will air on Global on Friday night. I will post the link in next month's post as well.

Thanks for reading and watching!
