Sportsnet Parts Ways with Don Taylor

Dec 19 2017, 7:33 pm

Don Taylor’s last sports highlights show will be this Friday, according to reports from Shane Woodford of CKNW. It appears Sportsnet is ceasing operations of its Vancouver-based Sportsnet Connected show.

Taylor later confirmed the report via his personal Twitter account.

This is bad news for Vancouver sports fans as far as I’m concerned, as it looks like Sportsnet will be drastically reducing their west coast presence.

The Vancouver-centric broadcast provided a view that won’t be duplicated with a broadcast out of Toronto.

Don Taylor is a legendary sports broadcaster in Vancouver, dating back to his days with Sports Page in the 80s and 90s. Rather than pick up another job in television, it appears Taylor will be doubling-up at his other job with Team 1040 radio.
