Sports announcers or commentators are people who analyze or describe tournaments, cups, and other sporting events. Their main gig is to break down the action happening in the game, provide insights, and give viewers context.
Sports broadcasters passionate about soccer
Let’s start with Andrés Cantor from Telemundo. He’s a famous Argentine-American sportscaster, widely known for his pumped up and iconic goal calls. Cantor became globally popular for his dragged out “Goooooool" shouts during soccer matches. His one-of-a-kind style of announcing goals has made him a prominent and memorable figure in sports.
Cantor kicked off his broadcasting career in the United States and has covered numerous major soccer tournaments. He has been in multiple FIFA World Cups and Copa America tournaments and currently rocks the mic at Telemundo Deportes.
The most unforgettable moment of his career went down in 2022 when he was called to the World Cup final. The broadcaster witnessed his home country Argentina take on France, seeing the Albiceleste crowned as world champions. In that instant, he couldn’t hold back the tears, which hit Argentinian national team fans right in the feels.
Stay tuned to DishLATINO to follow Cantor’s adventures.
Telemundo is full of talent
Another Telemundo sportscaster is Manuel Sol. He joined the network in 2013 as a sports analyst, covering huge sports events like the FIFA World Cup, qualifiers, the Premier League, and the Olympics.
Sol is a former footballer who played for Pumas, the UNAM squad, in Liga MX with Club Necaxa, and Club Atlante.
Fame truly came for Sol after he signed with Guadalajara in 2001. He played with the Chivas for the rest of his career, becoming a top midfielder and helping his team reach the Copa Libertadores in 2004 and clinch the Torneo Apertura in 2006.
All this playing experience was the perfect springboard to break into the media. He co-hosts Zona Mixta at Telemundo and provides commentary for Radio Chivas and Fútbol de Primera.
Carlos Hermosillo also made the jump from athlete to TV personality. This talented Mexican played for several clubs during his career, including Cruz Azul, where he crushed it.
He’s especially remembered for his Cruz Azul days in the 1990s, becoming the club’s highest goal scorer ever.
After hanging up his cleats, he’s been involved in sports commentary and analysis, mostly on Telemundo. Although he carved out a special place among Telemundo viewers, he later brought his talents to Fox Deportes.
Lots of outstanding figures from the sports world who will never be forgotten have passed through Telemundo over the years.
Experts in NFL, MLB, Boxing, and more sports
On Fox Deportes, you’ll spot Ernesto Jerez, a Dominican sportscaster and commentator. He’s also the official voice of Major League Baseball (MLB) for ESPN Deportes and ESPN Latinoamérica and writes for ESPNdeportes.com.
If you flip to TUDN, you’ll see Ricardo Celis, a sports journalist and TV host celebrated for his deep sports knowledge. He has worked for several sports networks, giving the play-by-play and analysis on various sporting events like NFL and boxing.
It’s true that many Spanish stations frequently swap out their sports personalities. But the most legendary sportscasters will always have a place in fan’s hearts.
That’s definitely the case with Fernando Fiore, aka “El Presidente." He’s an Argentine TV host and sports pundit who put in work for years on Univision’s República Deportiva.
Fiore, a two-time Emmy winner, also penned the book The World Cup: The Ultimate Guide to the Greatest Sports Spectacle on Earth. In recent years, Fiore did his thing as a Bundesliga commentator and Germany correspondent for Fox Deportes in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. In Latin America, he held it down as an English-language studio host for Fox Sports’ football coverage.
He’s become a household name in sports broadcasting, especially for his soccer commentary.
Another broadcaster who fans will never forget is Pablo Ramírez, who spent 28 years killing it at Univision.
Like his colleagues, Pablo Ramírez has covered various sporting events, with his bread and butter being football analysis. He’s known for giving live commentary and analysis during broadcasts of leagues, tourneys, and international competitions.
Experts in NFL, MLB, Boxing, and more sports
Girl power is also heavily represented in front of the camera. A prime example is Lindsay Casinelli’s illustrious career. This sports reporter, TV host, and commentator also knows her soccer. She previously hosted TUDN Combate Global, a mixed martial arts program on Univision.
Casinelli has covered all the major sports events such as NBA Finals, World Boxing Championships, World Series, NFL Playoffs, and World Cup.
The Venezuelan host has also been lucky enough to interview sports legends like baseball stars Derek Jeter, Yadier Molina, Matt Carpenter, Alex Rodriguez, and boxers Oscar de la Hoya, Floyd Mayweather, Manny “PacMan” Pacquiao, and many others.
However, she’s not the only woman with a passion for sports. There’s also Rosana Franco, Adriana Monsalve, and Ana Jurka holding it down.
As a young girl, Franco was an early athlete. She did track and field and gymnastics. Later she picked hoops and even played street baseball.
When she earned her media degree, she combined her two flames: TV and sports. She started as a commentator at República Deportiva and later became the sports reporter at Primer Impacto. She also worked at ESPN Deportes and other outlets.
Meanwhile, Ana Jurka kicked off her career as a co-host on Sobre Ruedas, a Honduran show about auto racings. This opportunity opened doors for her to pop up on various shows in her homeland until she moved stateside.
Her likable personality and dedication quickly earned her a spot at Telemundo, where she co-hosts Titulares y Más with Karim Mendiburo.
Recently, she hosted Zona Mixta until leaving the network after a 10-year run.
No doubt, there are a ton of TV personalities who love sports as much as you do. Not to mention all the rising stars who keep attracting millions of eyeballs.
