TEAM member goes for sportscasting gold

She may have a voice for radio but Meg Morrison from The TEAM 1260’s Jason Gregor Show is hoping her face will end up on television.

The search for Canada’s next sportscaster has narrowed to 10 finalists. Morrison, a Stony Plain native, is one of two female contenders from Alberta left in the Gillette Drafted 2 reality show, which will air on The Score this fall.

Morrison graduated from the radio and television program at NAIT when she was 19 and has been in the field ever since.

But the 25-year-old is hoping this will be the next step in her young sports broadcasting career.
“Statistically, my chances are 10 per cent,” Morrison said with a laugh.

“I like to think that I have a little bit of an upper hand, though. Working with Jason Gregor on the Team, he’s taught me so much so I’m just hoping that that shines through and that I can kick some butt down here.”

Morrison said she comes from a sporting family so The Score job would be a dream achieved for the self-described small-town girl.
