Dan Ralph
Dan Ralph's first Grey Cup as a reporter came while he was in Journalism School at Durham College in 1981.

It was an exciting place to be for a die-hard Ottawa Rough Riders fan. Ralph covered the week's activities and watched the game from the auxiliary press box.

Ralph started his writing career with the Timmins Daily Press. He also worked for the Stratford Beacon, the Georgetown Herald and the Halton Hills Independent, always covering sports, until 1990. After moonlighting for two years as a stringer-freelancer with Canadian Press, mainly covering football, Ralph heard from a friend there was an opening in the sports department. Ralph got the opportunity to work full-time at the national level when he was hired in October, 1991; his friend shifted from football to baseball and that created the football reporter's vacancy.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame-Media Wing in 2012
