Some wouldn't even cross the street to meet Larry Kuharich, but in 1988 Dale Isaac boarded weekly flights from Regina, Saskatchewan to do the radio play-by-play for the Kuharich-coached Calgary Stampeders.

Isaac moved from North Battleford, Saskatchewan to cover sports in 1973 at CJME in Regina. For three seasons he called Saskatchewan Roughriders games at CKCK, and then from 1975 until 1995 he worked at CKCK-TV, serving as the play-by-play man on CTV telecasts of CFL games from 1980 until 1986.

Isaac's 20-year TV career coincided with his older brother Mal Isaac's as a CBC sportscaster, and included three Olympic assignments.
