(l-r): Harvey Rosen, Rady JCC President Linday Sawyer-Fay, and Ernie Nairn

At a ceremony held Tuesday, March 26, at the Rady JCC, two veterans of the Winnipeg sports media scene were honoured for their contributions to the Jewish sports scene in Winnipeg.

 

 

Former Jewish Post & News reporter Harvey Rosen and former CBC sportscaster Ernie Nairn (and key contributor to the annual Ken Kronson Rady JCC Sports Dinner)  were two of the first inductees into what is known as the “Ernie Nairn Sports Media Wing” of the Rady JCC Wall of Honour. The wall also features pictures of builders and athletes who have left their mark on the Jewish sports scene here. (Ernie’s son, Richard, is also one of the first inductees into the Sports Media Wing.)
