Anchoring The News With Gord
Featuring Gord Steinke
Newsanchor, Producer, Author, Musician
December 11, 2012
Global Edmonton Studios
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Gord is no stranger to Edmontonians. As one of the region’s most popular news anchors, he brings you the News Hour, every weeknight at 6 PM on Global Edmonton. While Gord is best known as a veteran broadcast journalist, he’s also a best-selling Canadian author. He penned Mobsters and Rumrunners of Canada, which is sold at bookstores across Canada and the United States. It focuses on a little known part of Canadian history: the roaring 1920s and the connection between Canadian and American gangsters during prohibition. Gord is also an accomplished musician/singer/songwriter, with three albums under his belt.
Although the photo above was shot in the green screen room just after he hosted the evening news, the car was on air during the news. It’s visible next to Gord’s laptop in the lower left corner during the broadast.
Here’s are close up photos of a studio monitor during the broadcast with Miguelito’s Little Green Car clearly visible.
It’s visible again later next to the poinsettias during an interview with Ed Hervey of the Edmonton Eskimos football club. This is what it looked like in the studio.
And this is what it looked like on television.
