Guest Ron MacLean & Don Cherry

Hands down, Ron MacLean and Don Cherry are the most famous sports broadcasters in the country. For more than 25 years, they've been the face of Hockey Night In Canada teaming up every Saturday night for 'Coach's Corner.'

MacLean started with HNIC in 1986-87 and has won eight Gemini awards for his work, which has included hosting CBC's coverage of the Olympic games.

Cherry, of course, is an icon in Canada - outspoken, at times controversial, fiercely patriotic and don't forget all those suits. He started with HNIC, after a successful coaching career in the NHL - mainly with the Boston Bruins.

Named coach of the year in 1976, Cherry led the Bruins to two trips to the Stanley Cup Finals, losing both times to Montreal. In 2004, the CBC created a TV series to determine 'The Greatest Canadian of All Time', as voted by the public. Cherry finished 7th.

Hockey Night In Canada is celebrating its 60th season, as a pioneer in sports broadcasting on radio and TV. From Foster Hewitt and Danny Gallivan to Bob Cole and Peter Puck, HNIC is one of our most beloved traditions.

Now, that legacy is being honoured in a new book called 'Hockey Night in Canada: 60 Seasons.' And as you'd expect, MacLean and Cherry are a big part of it.
