COC celebrates 10 more years of Olympic Games coverage on CBC and Radio-Canada
TORONTO (April 6, 2022) – Today, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and Radio-Canada announced that it has renewed the broadcasting rights to the Olympic Games through the next 10 years.
CBC and Radio-Canada has long been Canada’s Olympic broadcaster, putting on a best-in-class viewing experience for Canadians driven by extensive coverage, deep storytelling, and innovative production. At Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022, the CBC, Radio-Canada and its broadcast partners covered hundreds of hours of competition, both live on television and through an expanded multi-platform experience, all of which helped immerse Canadians in the magic of the Games.
“We are thrilled that the CBC and Radio-Canada are going to be continuing their long tradition of being Canada’s official Olympic broadcaster until 2032,” says David Shoemaker, CEO and Secretary General of the Canadian Olympic Committee. “Most recently, CBC and Radio Canada’s incredible work at both Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022 helped inspire our nation and bring Canadians together during an incredibly difficult time. We look forward to working with them to bring the excitement, action, and personal stories that make the Olympic Games so unique to all Canadians for the next decade.”
This announcement solidifies CBC’s commitment to world-class coverage of amateur sports and reflects the continued and growing importance of Team Canada and the Olympic Movement for Canadians. The renewal agreement will make CBC the official Canadian broadcaster of Paris 2024, Milano Cortina 2026, and Los Angeles 2028, through to Brisbane 2032.
