Part One

Host Jeff Gilhooly introduces us to Kerri Rodden-Kemp, a young Canadian woman whose high school picture of "big hair" earned her a spot on the Ellen Degeneres show, and then, to the red carpet at the Grammy Awards.  We'll hear some highlights from the Canada Winter Games in Nova Scotia. Among them - a profile of Nathan MacKinnon, another promising hockey player from Sydney Crosbie's home town of Cole Harbour and the boxing Gordon family.  When Taylor Gordon stepped into the ring at the Winter Games his father and grandfather, former boxers themselves, were there right beside him.
