Dave Randorf has found himself a new job.

After six years at Sportsnet, which included Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts, he has taken a job to become the new play-by-play commentator for Fox Sports Sun covering the Tampa Bay Lightning.

“We are excited to add Dave to our broadcast team and organization,” said Lightning CEO Steve Griggs. “Dave has proven over the years of his broadcasting career to improve the viewing experience of hockey games on television to millions of fans.”

The 53-year-old has been unemployed since Sportsnet decided not to renew his contract last year.

The former CFL on TSN host has a wealth of experience covering sporting events like the IIHF World Championships and Montreal Canadiens games. Randorf has also been a studio host for six straight Olympic Games during his time at TSN from 2000-2012. Prior to joining TSN, Randorf was a fixture on Sports Page, a popular sports highlights show based in Vancouver.
