Legendary Canadian sports broadcaster, Rod Black, is to join NorthStar Gaming as a host and brand ambassador for NorthStar Bets.
With a career spent mostly at Bell Media, where he was a play-by-play announcer for the CFL, Toronto Blue Jays and a host to Toronto Raptors broadcasts, Black is considered one of the most recognised and trusted names in Canadian sports broadcasting.
He has previously commented on and provided play-by-play for a wide range of events including The Masters, RBC Canadian Open and five Olympic Games. In recognition of his achievements, Black received the Sports Media Canada Award for Outstanding Sports Broadcaster and stands as a five-time Gemini Award nominee for Canada’s Best Sportscaster.
Black commented: “It’s an exciting time for sports fans across Ontario and I look forward to introducing them to the NorthStar Bets brand and platform. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to cover some of the biggest moments in Canadian sports history, but what I’ve always enjoyed most is the ability to interact and engage with passionate fans, something I look forward to continuing to do as a NorthStar Bets host and ambassador.”
Representing NorthStar Gaming Bets, Black will work as a brand ambassador. He will also offer sports commentary and act as host across the platform’s social channels and in-app content.
Michael Moskowitz, NorthStar Gaming CEO and Founding Partner, said: “Rod is a familiar voice and face to Canadian sports fans and a perfect fit to champion the NorthStar Bets platform and educate consumers about our content-driven experience. We’re thrilled Rod is joining the NorthStar Bets team and bringing his expansive knowledge of all major leagues across North America, as we establish ourselves as leaders in the intersection of sports media and betting.”
Black is the latest in a growing NorthStar Bets content team, which also includes Senior NHL insider Chris Johnston. Respected as one of the top hockey insiders in North America, he leads NorthStar Bets coverage of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the NHL in general.
