NSSA National Sportscaster of the Year recipient Dan Shulman made his return to the Toronto Blue Jays broadcast booth for the 2016 MLB Season. Shulman joined the Sportsnet baseball broadcast team last spring, bringing with him decades of play-by-play experience and incomparable baseball knowledge.
In addition to his role with the Blue Jays on the Sportsnet broadcast team, Shulman continues his work with ESPN’s Major League Baseball coverage and NCAA College Basketball broadcasts.
The two-time Sports Media National Sportscaster of the Year winner began his career at CKBB in Barrie before moving to the FAN 1430 (now Sportsnet 590 The FAN), where he hosted a number of shows, including Prime Time Sports. In addition to his radio work, Shulman was a member of the CTV broadcast team at the 1994 Winter Olympics and 1994 World Championship of Basketball.
Moving away from the radio booth in 1995, Shulman signed on with TSN as the play-by-play for the Toronto Blue Jays alongside Buck Martinez. During his time as the voice of the Blue Jays, Shulman also worked extensively on National Hockey League and National Basketball Association broadcasts in Canada and began his tenure with ESPN, covering baseball and College Basketball south of the border.
In 2001, the Canadian sportscaster joined ESPN full-time. He is currently the voice of Sunday Night Baseball and ESPN’s Saturday Primetime College Basketball telecasts, and calls the World Series for ESPN Radio.
