57-Year-Old Canadian TV Sports Anchor

Darren Dutchyshen, a legendary Canadian sports broadcasting personality, has passed away at the age of 57. Dutchyshen was a well-known television sports anchor with Canada’s The Sports Network, where he hosted TSN’s Sportscentre show since 1995. He announced in 2021 on social media that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, which led to a significant reduction in his on-air responsibilities at TSN.

Dutchyshen was known for his sharp wit and ability to connect with viewers through his humor and energy. Stewart Johnston, senior vice president of sales and sports at Bell Media, TSN’s parent company, described Dutchyshen as an essential part of the network for three decades. He praised Dutchyshen for his ability to deliver jokes that were both humorous and inappropriate while maintaining his sharp wit until his final moments.

Dutchyshen started his career in broadcasting with STV in Saskatoon before moving on to IMTV in Dauphin, Manitoba, and ITV’s Sports Night in Edmonton. He later became a mainstay on the Sportscentre desk for nearly 30 years and also hosted Olympic Prime Time coverage during the 2010 Vancouver Games and 2012 London Games.

TSN is planning a television tribute to honor Dutchyshen on Thursday evening. His family has asked that anyone who wants to pay their respects do so by tuning into the tribute program or by donating to The Prostate Cancer Canada Foundation in his memory.
