TSN is expected to announce today that it has hired sportscaster Chris Cuthbert.

CBC fired Cuthbert, well-liked both inside and outside the industry, in February, claiming there was not enough work for him because of the NHL lockout. But an alleged strained relationship with Nancy Lee, the head of CBC sports, also reportedly was a factor.

Cuthbert, who joined CBC in 1984, carries a solid resume.

He did play-by-play for Hockey Night in Canada, was the main voice of the CFL on CBC and covered figure skating. He also has covered the Olympic Games.

A press release yesterday said that TSN president Phil King would make "a major announcement" this afternoon.
