Gord Wilson, the colour commentator for Ottawa Senators broadcasts on TSN 1200 and the face of Sens TV, has provided expert analysis for every Senators game on radio or TV since the club’s inception in 1992.
After graduating from the Algonquin College radio broadcasting program, Wilson got his start at the Cob, CKOB in Renfrew, Ont. He later moved to Ottawa, where he became a news and sports announcer at CKBY.
Wilson’s talent and his ability to pour his passion into a microphone landed him a job with CFRA as a sportscaster and sideline reporter for Ottawa Rough Riders Canadian Football League broadcasts.
When the National Hockey League returned to Ottawa in 1992, Wilson brought his passion to hockey as the colour commentator for Senators hockey broadcasts on CFRA and later the Team 1200.
