Even if the name Mike Rowe doesn’t sound familiar to you-you will immediately know who he is when you hear his voice and see his face. The longtime host of the mega-popular show Dirty Jobs – Rowe has been a cable TV fixture for years. These days he’s the host of a new show available on Facebook Watch titled Returning The Favor where he travels the country and shines a light on folks that go above and beyond for their communities – and help make the world a better place for us all.
Recently Rowe and crew traveled to my hometown of Canton Ohio to highlight a truly exceptional man. I first became aware of Officer LeMar Sharpe when I heard about him on the local metal station WRQK. A frequent guest on The Stansbury Show – Officer Sharpe lights up the morning with his conversations about fellowship and love and understanding. A man who is truly making a difference for young people and families in Canton – I can think of no one more deserving for this special recognition.
The half-hour episode is live now on Facebook Watch – and I’ve embedded it here for your viewing pleasure. Get ready for an emotional, uplifting and exceptional episode that really shines a wonderful light on Canton and North East Ohio.
