Figure Skating on World News

New, 1 comment

If anyone missed the skating piece on ABC's World News with Charlie Gibson yesterday, here is the link. To recap, the story takes a look at Skate Canada's efforts to emphasize the tougher side of figure skating, in order to increase ratings leading up to next year's Olympics. We blogged about this awhile back. I am assuming Skate Canada was also aware that the efforts might stir up some controversy, and controversy is also good for ratings. Hey, it's already earned a spot on World News Tonight, so I guess it's working!
