James Duthie is one of today’s most talented sports broadcasters. An avid athlete in his youth, Duthie studied Journalism at Carleton University, then spent several years working in TV news before transitioning to the sports desk.
In his years at TSN, he has worked in a variety of sports and roles: from CFL to NBA to the evening edition of Sports Centre, Canada’s most watched sports news and information program. He is currently the host of TSN Hockey.
His newest book “The Guy on the Left” tells the story of Duthie’s career in broadcasting, from a nerdy appearance on a game show to chatting with Tiger Woods in the men’s room at The Masters. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at celebrated moments like Sidney Crosby’s famous game-winning goal at the Vancouver Olympics, but also less celebrated insights, like the disclosure that sports broadcasters often aren’t wearing pants on air. Funny, thoughtful, self-deprecating, and wry, The Guy on the Left is everything fans love about James Duthie.
Duthie has also been awarded three Geminis for his broadcasting efforts. Charismatic and sharply witty, he is a favourite among sports fans across the country. He is able to share many entertaining personal anecdotes from his years in the sports industry, and possesses a natural ability to command the attention of an audience. These qualities and experience make Duthie a versatile and engaging speaker, and the ideal choice for many types of speaking engagements including; charitable events, acting as an event MC, or as a featured speaker at a corporate event.
