Brian O’Dea the producer of Creepy Canada said, “For the past two years I have produced Canada’s most successful Prime-Time Network travel show, and I can honestly say it would not have been possible without the incredible assistance of Rob McConnell.” O’Dea continued, “Rob was able to develop and deliver segment ideas, fully fleshed out, ideas which went on to produce; Rob helped writing, doing so in the midst of narration production (oh yes, he narrated for us, too), and he was on air host as well.”
The success of The ‘X’ Zone Radio Show was documented in 1998 by the BBC in a documentary titled, “CONTACT” which was filmed when Rob was hosting the show at 1290 CJBK in London.
