Ernie Afaganis changes role for Winter Games As an on-air personali- ty Ernie Afaganis is well- known to fans of CBC-TV sports. For the Canada Winter Games (February 11 to however, he is tackling a new job, that of handling radio and televi- sion co-ordination for the Games. To most viewers, Er- nie has become as familiar as the athletes he talks about on air. He has handl- ed commentary on virtual- ly, every sport seen by Canadian viewers, from golf to football, from high school meets to the Olym- pic Games. The people of the Lethbridge area look upon Ernie as a local boy who made good in the big time. He was born and educated in that Southern Alberta city, and joined CBC Ed- monton in 1961. From radio announcer, he became involved in local, national and inter- national sports. In 1971 Er- nie was appointed sports director for CBXT, a posi- tion he still holds. An avid golfer, Ernie developed two popular series on the sport: Tee To Green and Par 27, both of which were telecast originally in Edmonton. He is a graduate of Eastern Washington College, where he obtained a degree in business ad- ministration. His job as radio and television co- ordinator for the Games will allow him to put some of that administrative education to good use. But, even Ernie admits that he is going to miss some of the fun of being behind the microphone when the records are set at this year's Winter Games.
