K-Mart on the airwaves in America

If you've been wondering where defending gold medal skip Kevin Martin is these days, look no further than New York. 

Yup, the skip who thrilled everyone in Vancouver is helping NBC with its curling coverage, Norm Cowley reports. He's doing it off a monitor in New York City so he won't have to worry about sharing a room with Bob Costas over in Sochi. 

Martin won't exactly be bringing a lot of experience to the job, however. 

“I’ve never done much of that for anybody,” Martin said about his new broadcasting gig. “I did a game in the West Edmonton Mall event and a provincial final when Tommy Reed won (both in the 1990s).”
Martin lost out in the finals of the Alberta provincial championship, losing his title to Kevin Koe.
