So, the fans of spoken.
Numerous people “voted” here on the site and more emailed or dm’ed me on Twitter.
The overwhelming fan favourite for the first ever Jim Shaky Hunt Toronto Sports Media MSMER of the year goes to James Mirtle.
Once “just a blogger” now one of a few left at The Globe and Mail sports department and contributor on TV too Mirtle has been leading the wave of fresh new faces in the Toronto Sports Media scene. A proponent of the increased use of analytics in hockey he has been banging the drum for a while now and has been in the cross hair of some of the older guard media for his now more popular stance.
Next up, I ask the media who they think had the best year in their business.
Happy Sunday from New York City and congrats James!!
