Since his father Christopher Reeve‘s death in 2004 and mother Dana Reeve‘s two years later, their only son Will Reeve has carried on his family’s legacy with pride and passion through various projects and charity events. He keeps his late parents in mind when it comes to business moves, which is why his latest venture as host to a new hockey show holds a special place in his heart.
The son of a Princeton University graduate father and Teaneck-born mother scored a new series on MSG Networks called The MSG Hockey Show, a weekly 30-minute talk show where he’ll discuss the sport alongside co-hosts Anson Carter and Arda Ocal. This won’t be too much of a change from Will’s current position as an ESPN sports reporter.
Childhood memories instantly come to mind for the 24-year-old Rangers season-ticket holder, who grew up playing hockey and listening to his parents cheer him on from the bleachers.
“Some of my fondest memories come from sitting along the glass with my mom and dad, learning to love hockey and forging a deep bond with my parents, and the sport, that still exists today,” Will told Page Six.
This isn’t the only thing on his to-do list. On Sunday, Superman‘s son also plans to run in his first marathon, the TCS New York City Marathon, in an attempt to raise money for spinal cord research. Will hopes to raise $35,000 for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The foundation’s headquarters is located in Short Hills and is dedicated to finding treatments for paralysis by spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders.
