The Fanshawe Student Unionand the Fanshawe AlumniAssociation have combined their forces to bring a Canadian icon tothe college. On January 13, CBC’sGeorge Stroumboulopoulos iscoming to Fanshawe to sharesome of his experiences from his20-year career.This event is an interactive one, being conducted as an interview by one of Fanshawe’s BroadcastJournalism students. “A big rea-son why I wanted to do an inter-view in question and answer for-mat is that I don’t want to sit thereon stage and just tell you what Ithink. I really do think we’re inthat era where you know what youwant, so what do you want toknow? And I’ll be happy toengage,” said Strombo.He began his career working inradio, which he continues to dowith
The Strombo Show
on CBCRadio 2. “I do the radio thing because it soothes my heart. I lovedoing radio and I will always doradio. My show’s on Radio 2 andalmost no one knows I have ashow on Radio 2, and I’m coolwith that. It’s a pretty small stationand I like that because we getaway with what we want.”Best known for his CBC show
George StroumboulopoulosTonight 
(previously known as
The Hour 
) and his time onMuchMusic, Strombo has carvedout a place for himself inCanadian history by maintaining agrounded perspective that is unex- pected from someone with suchcelebrity status.“I’m not a cynic at all … I’mopen and I’m willing to be open atall turns, so that’s how I do it. Iremoved all cynicism from mylife, I removed any of that hipster  bullshit that prevents you fromreally learning about the world,” hesaid. “I want epiphanies every day,and the career has sort of been ableto give me that. The other thing isthat I don’t really look at it as acareer; this is my life. I think Idon’t have the life I have becauseof my job, I think I have the job Ihave because of the life.”Even with 20 years of experi-ence under his belt, Strombo stillgets taken aback by some of thethings he gets to experience. “I getcaught up in really weird roomswhere I look around and I’m like,‘This is crazy, what am I doinghere?’” mentioning an interviewhe conducted with a member of the Taliban in a prison cell in Northern Pakistan after visiting aschool that the Taliban had just blown up. As he put it, “It wasquite a place to be.”Some of Strombo’s most mem-orable moments are when he isable to learn from his childhoodheroes. “Growing up listening toThe Clash, they were instrumentalin my development, and to standin a park and interview JoeStrummer and just talk about life,like, that’s some shit right there.”He also reminisced about gettingto play hockey with the player who was the first hockey jersey heever owned.Strombo has interviewed every-one from Kermit the Frog to BillMaher to Tie Domi. “The high-light to me really is the fact thatwe can bridge this conversationwith film and music and entertain-ment and sports and be as passion-ate and as white hot about politicsand social activism as we are. It’sthe combination of what we’reable to pull off, that’s the thing Iget off on the most.”When looking over his impres-sive list of interviews, you can’thelp but wonder how he handlesthe pressure. “Early in my career, before I had much experience, Ithought I’d know what they would be like and I was really hesitant tointerview people I liked because Ithought, ‘Oh god, what if I havesuch a high opinion of them and itchanges?’ But then what I realizedwas I started to approach inter-views the way I approach mylife.”What this has resulted in isStrombo developing his own com- passionate version of picturing theaudience in their underwear. “Itruly, as best I can, exist without judgment. I remember that every- body’s just tired or exhausted.Most of the people you intervieware away from home, they’re onthe road, wherever they are there’ssomeone else mad at them for notgiving them enough time,” hesaid. “I now go into every inter-view with a blank slate. Everynow and then, I’m like ‘RobertPlant, please be awesome becauseI love Led Zeppelin,’ and he wasawesome.”After eight years on CBC televi-sion, Strombo feels like his showhas finally found its groove. “Ithink, honestly… it’s only been thelast month or two where I’ve foundwe hit a different stride where theshow is representing the range wecan do,” he said. “It just takes along time. This is a country thatdoesn’t have a real late-night histo-ry. Mike Bullard did a great joband paved the way, but therehaven’t been a lot of nightly late-night talk shows in this country.”According to Strombo, the keyto a successful career in broadcast journalism is to genuinely lovewhat you do. “It’s a challengingindustry and a very challengingtime. It’s evolving, so you have to be ready to fight it out. And theonly way to make that really work out for you on a human level is tolove it. If you don’t love it, it’s just gonna suck and you’re gonna burn out and not do it. So youneed to figure that out early, ‘doyou really wanna do this?’ and if so, be prepared to learn.”Geroge Stroumboulopoulos will be at Fanshawe on January 13 at 8 p.m. in C building. “I hope people bring their questions and wannaget into it,” he said. “I genuinelywanna have a conversation witheverybody, I’m not afraid of answering questions, there’s noth-ing you gotta worry about, let’s just have a talk.” Tickets are $12for students and alumni, $16 for guests and are now available in theBiz Booth. Questions for Strombocan be submitted in advance atfsu.ca/strombo.
