Just learned of the death of Calgary sportscaster Russ Peake. Worked ‘Sports Hot Seat’ TV with Russ for years. He was one of the best P.A. voices ever, having a long run with Flames. Enjoyed an evening with him covering curling in Vegas a couple of years ago. Great guy. RIP Russ.

There are few men with bigger hearts than Russ Peake – a giant in Calgary sports broadcasting. He passed away at age 80, following a lengthy battle with cancer. Always a gentleman, always smiling, he was a pro who was never too serious. Loved what he did and was damn good at it

Admire those who never take themselves & their careers too seriously, former

sportscaster Russ Peake the perfect example. Calm, cool, rarely complaining, not a common media trait. I picture Russ today, his shoulders shaking & a quiet giggle. A pleasure to know him.
