James Duthie remembers coming up with a story idea for his second year television class. It was a feature on Mark Brown, a star running back for the Ravens in the late 1980s. A crew from TSN was on hand to do a story on Brown, but because Duthie had asked first, Brown made the TSN crew wait their turn.
Now, Duthie works for TSN, hosting CFL Live, NBA in the Paint, SportsCentre and NHL on TSN. He also writes a column for TSN.ca called Upon Further Review.
Before joining TSN, Duthie worked as a news reporter for CJOH-TV in Ottawa and Vancouver’s VTV. “I tell all the new recruits at TSN that doing news reporting for a while is the best way to become a better sports reporter. Doing news provides the best foundation for how to tell a story.”
