Cabbie is coming home.

One of Canada’s most influential sports broadcasters, Cabral Richards (known as Cabbie) is returning to Canada, where he will be Sportsnet’s executive producer of sports betting content.

“Having an opportunity to come home and help build the betting portfolio, social experiences, and ride the highs and lows of wagering with Sportsnet has me hyped like hitting a 15 leg parlay!” said Cabbie. “Working with Bleacher Report Betting in Las Vegas was an invaluable experience, one that I will cherish. But now I’m excited to return to Sportsnet and reunite with my good friends Tim Micallef, Donnovan Bennett, and a whole host of other really smart people who have us in a great position to put Sportsnet on the board in this space. I can’t wait to start engaging with the betting community, which has been thriving under wraps in Canada for decades. Let’s get it!”

Cabbie will bring his energy and expertise from his various experiences, which include Cabbie on the Street segments and co-hosting the Bleacher Report Betting Show. 

In addition to leading sports betting content, Cabbie will be seen on Sportsnet’s array of platforms and properties, connecting with sports fans across Canada.
