Rejoice! CBC takes over from the Bell/Rogers Olympic consortium – words which cannot be said without sounding evil. While the media coverage of this year’s games hasn’t been overtly bad, it just feels right when the CBC carries the Olympics. I’ve missed Steve Armitage’s swimming commentary quite bad.
Now if they can lure Chris Cuthbert back and find Don Wittman’s successor we’ll be all set for Sochi 2014.
