For 33 years (1986-2019), Cherry co-hosted Coach’s Corner, and was known for his rather eccentric and flamboyant attire as well as his controversial comments. Although these controversial comments made him famous in the world of hockey commentating it also lead to his downfall when he, in November 2019, was fired by Sportsnet for making a comment about Canadian immigrants benefiting from Canadian veterans but not wearing the Remembrance Day Poppy in honor of them.
