Sports Page was a sports highlights television program that aired on CKVU-TV Vancouver from September 1977 until August 31, 2001, and later on CHEK-TV Victoria, British Columbia, from September 2, 2001 until September 2, 2005. It was known for its personality-driven, irreverent approach (including the humorous annual Christmas Eve special, Yulin' with the Page),[1] and for helping to launch the careers of several broadcasters, many of whom later worked for sports television outlets such as Rogers Sportsnet, TSN, and Vancouver radio station The Team 1040.[2]
