Strap on your skates, Strombo. You're going in.
Rogers has confirmed the team of broadcasters who will anchor NHL national coverage across all Rogers properties, as well as "Hockey Night in Canada." Together, George Stroumboulopoulos, Don Cherry, Ron MacLean, Daren Millard and Jeff Marek will be cornerstones of Rogers's NHL coverage this coming fall.
The team will deliver more than 500 regular season games across 13 networks and 7 platforms, including up to 7 games every Saturday night, plus "Hometown Hockey" every Sunday hosted from communities across Canada, and every game of the NHL Playoffs and Stanley Cup Final.
The announcement was made today by Scott Moore, President of Sportsnet & NHL Properties, Rogers.
"We know how passionate fans are about hockey, and so we've brought together the best anchors to deliver the best hockey experience to Canadians," said Moore. "George is one of the smartest and most versatile broadcasters in the business, and Ron and Don are icons in the hockey world. Along with Daren and Jeff, our new broadcast team brings a tremendous amount of talent, expertise and personality -- and most importantly, they all possess a supreme passion for hockey."
Earlier this morning, it was announced that "George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight," the CBC host's long-running interview show, will end after this current season. Stroumboulopoulos has hosted that show for 10 years.
