(January 12, 2009) – Skate Canada is pleased to bring back the Skate Bug for another event.
In October 2008 Skate Canada announced a new multimedia tool for skating fans: The Skate Bug. It was first used at the 2008 HomeSense Skate Canada International and received rave reviews from fans and media alike.
The Skate Bug is an earpiece that members of the live audience can purchase on location. It is designed to fit perfectly in the ear and will output expert commentary live to the in venue fan!
Featured commentators at the 2009 BMO Canadian Figure Skating Championships will be CBC digital channel BOLD’s, PJ Kwong, Olympic medalist and Skate Canada Director Marketing and Communications, Debbi Wilkes and the ever chatty, Skate Canada Manager of Officials and former Canadian medalist in senior men, Norm Proft. Special guests may drop by so make sure you keep your bug tuned in!
