AFTERNOONS: 2PM – 6PM
Barry Macdonald, otherwise known as B-Mac, is one of the foremost and highly respected sports personalities in Vancouver. Originally from Kamloops, Barry started his career as a broadcaster in Williams Lake fresh out of University. His talent for getting into the heart of the action and his enthusiasm for sports, brings life to the game for the listener.
“I love what I do, and feel fortunate to be doing it,” says Macdonald. “I’m a BC guy, and I love to tell BC stories.”
B-Mac now joins longtime friend and fellow Sports Page alum Don Taylor in the broadcast booth for the all new Afternoon Show on TEAM 1040, 2pm-6pm.
Here’s a new one: A frustrated athlete-turned sportscaster. Loved hockey, loved lacrosse, loved football…pathetic at all of ‘em. As a result, Don Taylor went into a shell. Literally. At the age of seven, he found a large clamshell on a Stanley Park beach and lived inside of it for several months. To this day, the combination of lemon juice and butter makes him nervous.
However, his love for sports endured. Don turned to broadcasting with the hopes of becoming a sports reporter. He attended Phil Swenson’s Jock Talk College. From there it was on to local television and radio in Red Deer and then Vancouver. Now Taylor, synonymous with sports in Vancouver, has covered all aspects of the local sports scene for nearly 20 years, on both television and radio, and is currently the anchor of Rogers Sportsnet Pacific’s top-rated Sportsnet News program.
