Perry has been anchoring Sports at CTV since the station began in 1997 (Vancouver Television).
In those early years, he travelled on the road as part of the Vancouver Canucks and yes, even the Vancouver Grizzlies broadcasts.
He continues to be part of live events as part of TSN’s MLS coverage of the Vancouver Whitecaps.
You can always find him on the anchor desk at CTV News at Noon and at 6 p.m. newscasts.
Although covering professional athletes is always the foundation, he has spent the last eleven years as the host of Perry’s Prospect; a Thursday segment wish is all about the kids.
In 2012, Solkowski enjoyed working at the London Summer Olympics where four of those one time Perry’s Prospects were actually competing in the Games.
Solkowski, a two-time winner of the Edward R. Murrow Award, can still be found on the sidelines of local soccer fields almost every weekend.
