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.

[info]This was Miguelito’s Little Green Car’s third television appearance.[/info] [info]In February 2012, Gord was appointed as Honourary Lieutenant Colonel of the 15th Edmonton Field Ambulance which is part of the 41st Canadian Brigade Group. Many of the soldiers in the unit have performed tours of duty in Afghanistan. The appointment of Honouray Colonels goes back to the Boer War. Gord says this, “What makes me and my family especially proud of this honorary title is that my Grandfather (who I was very close to) was Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Herbert Ford,” Steinke says, “He was a World War 1 Veteran who fought at Vimy Ridge and Passchendale with Tobin’s Tigers – 29th Vancouver Battalion. I can see him smiling.”[/info]
