TSN and ESPN Broadcaster
ESPN's Dan Shulman, one of North America's most prolific and passionate sports broadcasters, works exclusively in Canada for TSN as a regular contributor. The Toronto native provides analysis and reports for key TSN properties, including SportsCentre.
Shulman also works for ESPN as the play-by-play voice of the U.S. network's marquee MLB game of the week, Sunday Night Baseball, which airs in Canada on TSN2. Shulman, who also covers college basketball for ESPN, was honoured by Sports Illustrated magazine in December as the top national announcer in the U.S. for the first decade of this century.
Shulman began his career at TSN in 1995, providing play-by-play commentary for Toronto Blue Jays games. In addition to covering MLB and the World Series for TSN, Shulman also did play-by-play for NHL and NBA games on TSN, and covered the Lillehammer 1994 Olympic Winter Games for CTV.
In 2001, Shulman joined ESPN as a MLB and college basketball commentator. He called Wednesday Night Baseball telecasts from 2002 to 2007, Monday Night Baseball from 2008 to 2010, and the MLB Playoffs on ESPN Radio since 2001.
Shulman's college basketball responsibilities at ESPN include play-by-play commentary on the network's Saturday prime-time game of the week and other top games throughout the collegiate season. Shulman has also called NBA games for ESPN since 2007.
