Reporter | Paralympic Games Report
Veteran CBC Radio personality Scott Regehr will provide on-site reports for Paralympic Games Report across the national radio network throughout the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, providing the latest news, results and updates from the Games.
Regehr can be heard weekday mornings across the country as CBC's national sports host. Since 1999, he has been a reporter, host and associate producer for CBC Radio and Television in Vancouver, Yellowknife and his hometown of Whitehorse. He has hosted CBC Radio's coverage for three FIFA World Cups, the 2007 U-20 World Cup in Canada and two FIFA Women's World Cups.
His career has seen him filing stories from an igloo in the high Arctic while the temperature (including wind chill) dropped to -60 Celsius outside; alongside an aircraft suspected of being hijacked on September 11, 2001; and at the end of an 800-kilometre walk along the famous Spanish pilgrimage route, the Camino de Santiago.
Regehr is also the author of the guide books Canadian Rockies With Kids and America's Desertlands With Kids (PKS Media, 2006). Along with travel, sport remains his passion - particularly soccer.
He obtained a BA in History from Brock University before continuing his studies at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Broadcast Journalism. He now lives on the Danforth in Toronto where he writes, plays competitive soccer and baseball and follows all that's going on in the world of sport.
