Ottawa's gift to broadcasting, Pat Marsden began his radio career in Blind River, Otnario in 1958. Marsden returned to Ottawa two years later and did the play-by-play of the Ottawa Rough Riders during the "Golden Era" watching future Hall of Fame members' Russ Jackson, Ron Stewart, and Whit Tucker.

Marsden moved to Toronto in 1967 to work for CFTO-TV and went on to become one of Canada's most recognized CFL commentators.
