(Toronto, ON) July 14, 2021 – Connecting cultures through sport, the Olympics are returning to TLN Media Group! Through a partnership with CBC/Radio-Canada – Canada’s Olympic network– TLN Media Group is an Official Licensed Broadcaster of the Olympic Summer Games Tokyo 2020, providing live coverage in non-official languages.

From July 23 to August 8, TLN Media Group will deliver 100+ hours of men’s and women’s Olympic soccer, as well as daily Olympic highlights in Italian and Spanish to Canadians from coast to coast on TLN Television and Univision Canada.

“We are fortunate to continue our 37-year track record of bringing Canadian multiculturalism to life on TV,” said TLN Media Group President, Aldo Di Felice. “In this case by bringing our communities of viewers the sports they love in the languages they speak. The millions of Canadians who speak Spanish or Italian can watch this world event on Canadian TV with Canadian made commentary in their languages of comfort. That’s diversity.”

TLN’s 17 days of Olympic coverage will culminate with both the women’s and men’s gold medal matches, on August 6th and 7th.

The colourful multicultural Olympic broadcast team includes Canadians from Italy and Venezuela:

  • Italian native and Mediaset Italia Canada host, Antonio Giorgi is no stranger to making the big calls and has perfected his skill working the Olympic Games Pyeongchang 2018, Euro 2016 and 2014 FIFA World Cup broadcasts
  •  Nelson Perez is an experienced Spanish-language broadcaster from Venezuela who will once again join the TLN Olympic broadcast team to provide the Spanish language play-by-play. Perez’s love of sports broadcasting garnered him the spot as one of the lead play-by-play radio announcers during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and he’s had the opportunity to interview high profile pro athletes including David Villa and Josh Donaldson.
