SportsCentre


SportsCentre

"SportsCentre" is a sports news program airing on the Canadian network TSN. TSN's flagship program, it airs several times daily and was known as "SportsDesk" until 2001.

The show also appears on sister network CTV after its Sunday NFL broadcasts and serves as a recap show of the day's action.

On September 25, 2006, SportsCentre began broadcasting in High Definition (HD), and TSN has announced hopes to have all reports from its bureaus in HD in the near future. [ [http://www.tsn.ca/headlines/news_story/?ID=178798 TSN - Canada's Sports Leader ] ]

"SportsDesk's" re-branding came after the American sports network ESPN acquired a share of TSN. As a result, "SportsCentre's" graphics and format are identical to ESPN's own flagship program, "SportsCenter", with one obvious difference being that TSN's version of the program uses Canadian spelling. As a result of the rebranding, many ESPN personalities will appear on "Sportscentre" for short segments including John Clayton as an NFL insider and Chris Berman for the "2 Minute Drill".
