Veteran CBC Sportscaster Announces Retirement After 40 Years On Air

Scott Russell has been with the Corp. doing sports for almost 40 years. And you've seen him on a ton of major events during that time. 

"Russell has covered 16 Olympic Games for CBC, including six as host, and also led the network’s coverage of six Pan Am Games, six Commonwealth Games, two FIFA World Cups and two FIFA Women’s World Cups. In addition, Russell was a host and rink-side reporter for CBC's Hockey Night in Canada for 14 years."

He'll do one last Olympics for the network this summer before getting out of the game for good.
