Saskatchewan International Speedway, south of Saskatoon, is ready to return in 2021 with a slightly scaled-back schedule and a limited number of spectators.
Derek Bidwell made his return to Global Saskatoon in February 2018.
He attended the University of Saskatchewan and then graduated from the Broadcast News Program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology.
Derek’s journalism career began in his hometown of Saskatoon at Global Television, where he worked in the sports department as a reporter and anchor for four years.
His next stop was Calgary working at CityTV and CTV as a sports anchor and reporter. He was also on the airways, as part of the sports team for Newstalk 770am, providing sports updates and co-hosting the “Sportstalk” show at night.
He left “Cowtown” and returned to his home province (the one that’s hard to spell for some, but easy to draw for all), to be closer to his family and friends, joining the Global Regina team as a reporter/anchor in the fall of 2016.
Derek played four seasons with the Saskatoon Hilltops, winning a national championship. The 1996 championship team was also inducted into the Saskatoon and Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.
You can catch Derek on Global News at 6 and Global News at 10.
