Charlottetown’s Robbie Doherty scores prime Olympic curling seat with TV job (CBC PEI)

Charlottetown curler Robbie Doherty may not be competing in the Olympics, but he may be doing the next best thing.

Doherty is a spotter with Olympic Broadcasting Services, working rinkside at the Olympic curling venue in Pyeongchang, helping out with the TV coverage. 

With his broadcast job, Robbie Doherty has a great view of the games. (Submitted by Robbie Doherty)

“I am kind of the eyes and ears in the arena for the director and producer, so if they have any curling questions or anything they want to see that’s not happening on the ice they can ask me. I’m on a headset with them non-stop,” he said.

He will return home before this weekend’s gold medal matchups and get back to his full-time job with the Grand Slam of Curling.
