One of North America's most prolific sports broadcasters returns to TSN as the network today announced that ESPN's Dan Shulman has joined Canada's Sports Leader as a regular contributor.

Shulman will work exclusively in Canada for TSN, providing analysis and reports across all platforms for the network's key properties, including SPORTSCENTRE.

Shulman will continue working 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.

"Dan's passion for sports is second to none and his integrity as a journalist makes him one of the most respected broadcasters in North America.  He is an asset to the TSN broadcast team and strengthens our ability to deliver best-in-class multimedia sports coverage to fans in Canada.  We are very pleased to welcome Dan back home to TSN," said Mark Milliere, Senior Vice-President, Production, TSN.

"It is absolutely a thrill to be returning to my television roots after all these years and working with the great team at TSN.  With SUNDAY NIGHT BASEBALL already on TSN2, it's a natural fit for me and I look forward to interacting with Canadian sports fans once again as part of the TSN family," said Shulman.

A native of Toronto, 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 is currently the play-by-play voice for ESPN's flagship SUNDAY NIGHT BASEBALL telecasts alongside former MLB pitcher Orel Hershiser and manager Bobby Valentine.

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.
