BEHIND THE GLASS
Before we start, I need your help.
Hello, from the penalty box, a little hockey humor there. Today I am so excited to talk with the Columnist for USA Hockey Magazine, Christie Casciano Burns. Yes, we are talking about hockey in July. If you are a hockey parent, you will understand that the season never really ends.
Emmy nominated veteran anchor, and author Christie Casciano is a graduate of Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications. After reporting for WROC-TV in Rochester, Christie was eager to return home to her big Italian family in Syracuse to join the NewsChannel 9 team and the station she grew up watching.
Christie anchors NewsChannel 9 First at 4:00, NewsChannel 9 at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and Eleven at 11:00 with Rod Wood. Christie has covered many important stories that have impacted the Central New York community and developed NewsChannel 9's OnTheLookout.net, a crime franchise that has been recognized statewide for its efforts to help keep neighborhoods safe. Each week Christie profiles wanted criminals, and her reporting has helped police solve hundreds of cases.
She is the recipient of numerous community and professional awards, including the Syracuse Press Club's Professional Standards Award, and received a proclamation from the Onondaga County Executive naming December 29, 2012, as Christie Casciano Day. Christie's investigative series on the heroin epidemic earned her an Emmy nomination and the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award.
Christie is a proud hockey mom and has written three hockey-themed books; Haunted Hockey in Lake Placid, The Puck Hog, and My Kids Play Hockey, which has sold to hockey parents across the country. Her monthly hockey mom columns have become required reading for the half-million readers of USA Hockey Magazine. She also teamed up with NewsChannel 9's Lou Gulino and Tim Fox to write "Syracuse Television History." She also had the privilege of flying with the Thunderbirds in an F-16 Fighter Jet and pulled 9-G's!

When the guest says to you, "that's been an hour?" I take that as a compliment. I was able to hear from Christie's point of view about being a hockey parent. At one part of our conversation, she started to interview me. That was wonderful. What a delight Chrisite was, and I hope she comes back on.
