One of Canada's most popular sportswriters contributes his voice to TSN, as the network announced that National Post sports columnist Bruce Arthur has joined Canada's Sports Leader on Thursday.
Arthur will appear on TSN RADIO 1050 as co-host of Cybulski & Company on Mondays, alongside afternoon drive host, James Cybulski. He makes his debut on Canada's newest all-sports radio station on Monday, April 18, following the launch of TSN RADIO 1050 on Wednesday, April 13.
In addition to his role on TSN RADIO 1050, Arthur will also join host Dave Hodge as a regular panellist on the critically-acclaimed weekly magazine show, TSN The Reporters with Dave Hodge, airing Sundays at 10:30am et on TSN.
Arthur, a 2010 National Newspaper Awards finalist and one of the most influential journalists on Twitter, will continue in his role as national sports columnist for the National Post.
"Bruce is one of the brightest, young sports journalists in Canada," said Mark Milliere, Senior Vice-President, TSN. "Whether it's in his column, on the radio, on TV or on Twitter, Bruce's perspective is always smart and always on the mark."
"I don't know anyone who doesn't like James Cybulski, though I can't necessarily say the same for his three-piece suits. Luckily, this is radio, and what he's wearing won't matter, and we'll have a hell of a lot of fun," said Arthur. "As for The Reporters, I love the show, and I'm simply honoured to work with Dave Hodge. He's a legend in this business for a reason, and I just hope I don't ever cause him to flip his pen in disgust."
A veteran sportswriter, Arthur has been with the National Post since 2001. He covered the Toronto Raptors for five years before being named the newspaper's Toronto sports columnist in 2007. In 2008, Arthur became the Post's national sports columnist and has since covered major events such as the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Grey Cup, the Beijing 2008 Olympic Summer Games and the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Last year, he was featured on ESPN's Around The Horn, making him the first Canadian journalist to appear on the network's daily sports debate program. Arthur is also very active on Twitter with more than 8,000 followers on the social media website.
