At the recent Rocky Mountain Chapter Emmy Awards Ceremony last Saturday, Fox Sports Arizona was five Emmy Awards. The winning segments were for original programming in addition to live program. Todd Walsh was named best sports anchor in the region. We know this every time we see Todd at the podium honoring a Coyote going up on the ring of honor. Watching Todd before the game with Tyson Nash and Matt McConnell and you see how good he is. Todd does more than just drive the train. He does what a good host does. He gets more out of this guests than cursory responses (see Lisa Salters of ABC for how to ask the same question over and over and learn nothing) during in-game interviews. He allows Tyson and Matt to get their points out without getting in the way. He is the best, and we are lucky to have him.
