Belak's Death, First Responders & Blockbuster Goes Bust
The hockey world tries to come to terms with the death of one of their own. Wade Belak is the third player to die in just over three months and today the NHL released a statement saying it's committed to examining the factors that may have contributed to these deaths. Tonight we're talking to Fan 590 host, Jim Lang, who knew Belak. And we're also talking to a former NHL enforcer, Jaime Allison.
For years first responders have been saying the work they did at Ground Zero caused multiple health problems, including cancer. Today, a report from a respected medical journal confirms that is the case. We'll talk to the wife of 9/11 First Responder who died from cancer in 2009.
And, Blockbuster goes bust. As an iconic brand pulls out of Canada we're taking a closer look at the Video Store era.
