Majic 100's Stuntman Stu heads to Sochi

Majic 100's Stuntman Stu is preparing for a long flight to Sochi, where he will be announcing women's hockey during the Olympic games.

Stu Schwartz is no stranger to announcing hockey games, he is also the P.A. announcer for the Ottawa Senators.

He is also scheduled to work a couple of the men's quarter final games.

"It's an incredible honour to work the Olympic Games," said Schwartz. "This will be my second one that I'm working. I worked Vancouver in 2010 and to work the Olympics, to be in that Olympic bubble where the world is watching, you know, we're obviously hoping good things for Canada, and from a personal point of view it's a great feeling to put on the Olympic jacket and work the games."

Schwartz, who is behind the No More Bullies campaign, told CFRA he is against Russia's anti-gay laws.

"I don't agree with their politics, but I'm certainly not going to go there to try and make a stand," he said. "That's not what I was hired to do. I was hired to be a public address announcer for hockey and they're not interested in my views and I may not agree with theirs, but I'm going to their country and I'm going to work the games and enjoy the experience for what it is."

You can listen to live coverage of the Olympics on brother station TSN 1200 -- the official affiliate broadcaster of the Sochi Games.
