The Origins of Go/Nitro
Because every athlete has a first day.
What does it feel like on your first day being drafted into the NBA? How does it feel right after you've been drafted onto a Division I NCAA team?
Through special arrangements we've made with your favorite teams in your favorite sports, now you can in a way never seen before. Emily Fulford (a former hockey goalie), poses as a newly drafted athlete...who has never played the sport before and must learn to keep up while learning.
Orillia native Emily Fulford, a former goalie and instructor at the Rick Heinz Hockey School, began her broadcasting career in 1998 with Rogers, one of the largest broadcasting companies in Canada. Her hockey skills combined with her natural accuracy with a camera pedestal quickly granted her promotion to main camera for OHL/CHL hockey games for the network as the only female camera operator there at the time. She is an avid skiier, rollerblader, and huge MLB baseball aficionado, cheering for the Tampa Bay Rays.
