If you are not a regular viewer of Eastlink Television (aka “Cable 10” in Charlottetown), you may have missed the fact that Kevin O’Brien has taken over from Elmer Williams as host of the Tuesday evening call-in programme Point of View.
I liked Elmer as host: he wasn’t pretentious, he ran the show well, and he was good at engaging his guests. Kevin’s equally up to the task, though, and this is especially impressive as, to the best of my knowledge, the sum total of his television experience before he assumed the host’s chair was, well, nothing. Of course he did play the lead in Brigadoon (or was it South Pacific?), and that must count for something ;-).
Be sure to tune in next Tuesday night if you’re around a cable outlet.
