PowerBoat TV Producers & Hosts
Jon Blaicher is a Producer and co-host of PowerBoat Television with extensive boating experience. He comes from a family of boaters — power on his father’s side and sail on his mother’s. In the 80s, he raced Lasers, Laser 2s, Albacores, and Code 40s and grew up boating on Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay.
About 10 years ago he bought a small Formula 252SS cuddy with a 502 Mag MPI before moving onto a 2005 Chaparral Signature 270 with a pair of Mercruiser 5.0 TKS carb stern drives. Now he’s the proud owner of a 37’ President Sedan Bridge he uses as a floating cottage. He’s in the process of getting it modernized. He doesn’t just drive the boats, he likes to fix them too.
Jon previously hosted Snowmobiler TV, where he wrote and produced snowmobile test reviews and new product segments. He’s also been involved in the Labatt WaterWise Boat Pro team, traveling the province delivering PWC safety-related messaging. Most recently, Jon served as a Product Manager with Yamaha for 13 years.
Drew McMillin is a Producer and Co-Host of PowerBoat Television. An avid waterskier, his summers growing up were spent behind wheels and wakes on Peninsula Lake in Huntsville, ON. Drew’s first boat, a 1962 Boston Whaler 13 Sport, was a gift from his aunt when he was 10 years old and still runs like an unsinkable dream to this day. It also played an important role in his commute to Deerhurst Resort, where he ran the waterski school for many years.
Drew graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in finance in 2013 and began work at an accounting firm in Toronto. After earning his CPA designation, he did a career “180” and enrolled at the College of Sports Media in Toronto to pursue passions for sports and television. Upon completion of his diploma in Sports Broadcasting, he worked as a highlight producer in TSN’s SportsCentre newsroom, before moving way up north to Timmins, ON, where he worked as a Video Journalist with CTV News Northern Ontario.
Drew’s dream is to one day own a house on a private waterski lake in Florida with separate boats for slalom and surfing. For now, he’s happy living the dream co-hosting PowerBoat Television, the number one boating show in North America.
