dougdirks.jpgDoug recently celebrated his twentieth year at CBC Calgary.

During that time, he has hosted the Homestretch on radio, the local TV news, and shows on CBC News Network. Doug has also worked as a sports commentator, covering everything from the Stanley Cup Finals to the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.

He is a graduate of McGill University, Mount Royal College, and Humber College.

Doug is married to a mental health professional, which comes in handy since he is the father of two teenagers, and continues to struggle with his golf game.
