Sportscaster Mel Busler remembers the late Glenn Gough

He covered everything from billiards, to bowling, to outdoor life.
It was his weekly show, North Country Sportsman, that was must see television. From that show, the station would sponsor many ice fishing derbies, most notably the Sackets Harbor Derby. Although at the time, Gough had his reservations about it.
