Not only will CTV be airing the Olympics in 2010 and 2012, but they will also have a familiar face reporting on them.
CTV announced yesterday that Brain Williams of CBC will be joining the network in the new year.
“Brian Williams has been the face of the Olympics for Canadians for decades and we’re delighted that he will bring this legacy to CTV for 2010 and 2012,” says Rick Brace, president of CTV Inc.
Williams will also be featured on TSN, as well as other sporting assignments and will be the network’s primetime anchor for the 2010 and 2012 Olympics.
“For more than 30 years, I’ve enjoyed tremendously my role with the CBC. Now, I look forward to joining the CTV/TSN team and the opportunity to play a role in shaping coverage for Vancouver 2010,” Williams said after the announcement had been made.
