Published by Wiley and Sons, it was released on 30 September 2005. It was a collection of stories from his time as a reporter. Long after he’d retired from full-time work he continued writing a Tuesday column for the Sun, his last one running 28 February 2006.


When Hunt worked for the Toronto Sun newspaper, Hunt was asked to attend Harold Ballard’s 85th birthday. The birthday was on 30 July 1988 and held at Ballard’s cottage in Thunder Beach. Hunt attended the party with a female photographer called Veronica Milne. Hunt and Milne got lost on the way to the party and arrived an hour late. Upon their arrival, Ballard responded by saying, “Hunt, I know why you’re late. You were humping her in the back seat of the car.”


He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1987.


In 1983, he became sports columnist with the Toronto Sun. He would later co-host a sports program with Bob McCown called Prime Time Sports on Toronto’s The Fan 590 radio station while with the paper.


He moved to CKEY in 1967 as sports director of the AM radio station, eventually becoming news director. Hunt credited the CKEY job with giving him the opportunity to cover the 1972 and 1974 Canada-Russia hockey series.


His interview with Ali took place in a midtown Manhattan hotel room prior to Ali’s 1964 upset win over Sonny Liston. After telling Hunt what he was going to do to Liston, the young and brash Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) burst into one of his trademark verses. “After I beat Liston I’ll be sad, then there’ll be no one to make me mad.”


Along the way he interviewed a long list of well-known figures in the sports world and outside it. He wrote a biography in the mid-1960s on hockey legend Bobby Hull. It was titled, Bobby Hull: The first million dollar hockey player. He had lunch with Marilyn Monroe and took notes while chatting with Yankee great Mickey Mantle. He also interviewed legendary boxers, Rocky Marciano, Sonny Liston and Muhammad Ali. As well as sharing drinks with Queen Elizabeth II on her private yacht during the Montreal Olympics.


His book also described what it was like covering the hockey riots in 1955 in Montreal. The incident occurred after the NHL suspended Canadiens great Maurice Richard for attacking a Boston Bruins player with his stick, and later going after a linesman who tried to stop him. Hunt said it was a day he’d never forget, “one of the blackest in the history of hockey.”


At the Star’s sports department, he worked under Milt Dunnell in 1953 and later the Star’s former weekly magazine as sports editor. While with the Star, one challenging assignment saw him smuggling a gun — he opted for a fake one made of wood — in a gun case into Maple Leaf Gardens in 1956 during a Toronto Maple Leafs playoff game against the Detroit Red Wings. The objective for Hunt was to test the Gardens’ security. He was able to get past the ticket-takers and the Star ran the picture of him and the gun case on the front page the next day.


He holds the distinction of having attended every Grey Cup game between 1949 and 1999. Every year, for as long as sportswriters can recall, Toronto Sun columnist Jim Hunt asked the most critical question at the coaches’ press conference during Grey Cup week.


Born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario, Hunt began his 50-plus years in journalism when he joined the Toronto Daily Star in 1948, working first as a city news reporter. He was working in the Queen’s Park bureau before moving to sports in 1952.
