NORTHERN
LIGHTS



Meanwhile back at Chan-
nel 9, Adler's TV career
started to blossom as a fill-in
for the station's regular per-
sonalities. He subbed for
movie host Conrad Patrick
and got to interview Mr.
Belvedere on commercials
("I'm glad you asked me that
Marty") and eventually
wound up as co-host with
Marilyn McKay (now a
Channel 56 producer) of an
afternoon pre-Kelly and
Company interview show
called Insight.
Adler interviewed everyone
from Woody Allen to Billy
Graham during the three
years he co-hosted Insight.
He's proud of the offbeat in-
terviews he conducted for the
show adding "they were so
offbeat they didn't want me
on the show any longer."
So they told Adler he be-
longed in latenight television
and instead gave him the job
of hosting Reach for the Top,
a local show pitting teams
from high schools against
each other to see which
school team could answer the
most questions correctly.
After nine years of hosting
that show, Adler says "the
station offered me as much
money in my tenth year as I
got in my first, and I thought
it was an insult. I was told
things like we've got you for
eight hours a day and we can
do with you as we please.
You want to be a star? You
want to be on TV? You'll do
it.
"I didn't do it."
So it was back to the tele-
vision booth for another five
years where all Adler ever
got to say was "this is CBC
Windsor, Channel 9." He says
it was "like being banished to
Siberia. You still made your
money but nobody sees you.
And you're there in the booth
for eight hours a day."
But meanwhile, Channel
9's owners, the Canadian
Broadcasting Corp. (CBC),
which is run by the federal
government, drastically
slashed the station's staff.
While Adler was putting his
booth time in, he set up a
video production company.
Great Lakes - Riverton,
which he says is the only
production company of its
kind between Windsor and
Toronto. When the staff cuts
hit CBET-TV, Adler talked
one of the station's top pro-
ducers, Terry MacDonald,
into joining his outside firm.
Today, Great Lakes - River-
ton produces the Windsor
Raceway show which Adler
hosts on CBET-TV, and
which is shown every Mon-
day across the U.S on the
PASS sports cable network.
Adler's big break came in
the summer of 1985. Station
brass called him into a meet-
ing and told him they weren't
