Telemundo scores sportscaster Cantor

Commentator named ASA's sports personality of the year

MIAMI — U.S. Hispanic net Telemundo has inked a multiyear agreement with vet sportscaster and soccer Andres Cantor.

Cantor, 37, had worked for 13 years at rival net Univision until he left last month. Soccer America magazine recently named the U.S.-educated Argentine native the ninth most influential person in the game.

In 1994, Cantor was named sports personality of the year by the American Sportcasters Assn. and he won an Emmy for individual achievement for his play-by-play coverage of that year’s World Cup. Cantor’s broadcast trademark is an extended shout of “Goal!” when a score occurs.

“Andres’ unparalleled mix of excitement and knowledge has made him the most recognizable commentator in the U.S.,” said Telemundo sports veep Jorge Hidalgo. “Reuniting him with Norberto Longo, Jessi Losada and the rest of our team solidifies our position as the premier sports broadcaster in the industry.”

Raul Mateu of the William Morris Agency repped Cantor in the deal.
