Steve Douglas

 

 

Steve Douglas was a Canadian sportscaster, most notably with CBC Sports.

Douglas was a sports anchor for CBLT in Toronto and an announcer for the CFL on CBC from 1953-1965. At the CBC, Douglas called ten Grey Cups and the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and hosted Weekend in Sports, Football Huddle, Locker Room, and World of Sport.

Douglas' contract was not renewed by CBC in 1965 because he objected to the network's decision to cut the daily sportscast from fifteen minutes to eight minutes. After his time with the CBC, Douglas worked for the Ontario Jockey Club and later moved to Barrie where he covered sports for CKVR-TV.
