Olympic figure skater Kaitlyn Weaver to host “Open Ice” show for COVID-19 relief
Olympic figure skater Kaitlyn Weaver is to produce and host a one-off talk show called Open Ice to raise money for the fight against COVID-19.
The programme, which will be co-produced by Jordan Cowan of On Ice Perspectives, will feature some of the world’s best skaters within their own homes.
Games, interviews and impromptu performances will be part of the show with Canada’s Weaver based in her own apartment in New York.
It will be live-streamed on the International Skating Union’s (ISU) YouTube channel on April 25 with “unscripted moments and unbridled spontaneity” promised.
Funds raised will be donated to the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund…
