On this episode of Reinvention of the VJ, Erica Ehm gets personal with George “Strombo” Stroumboulopoulos about growing up on in poverty, the woman he considers his hero, how he faces his fears and why he invites random strangers into his home to listen to music. Strombo is equal parts punk rocker and social justice warrior. He’s been described as a superstar of MuchMusic and a mama’s boy. He’s had to navigate both failure and adoration, but hasn’t let either define him. Instead he innovates and stays true to himself. George talks about how he started his career in radio and why it continues to be his medium of choice. He tells tales about his early days on MuchMusic and doesn’t hold back about why he thinks Much ultimately failed. From bad boy growing up on the wrong side of the tracks to becoming one of the most respected broadcasters in Canada, this episode is riveting right to the end.
