Don Wittman, CBC Sports Legend, Loses Battle With Cancer

Canadian Broadcasting Company Sports legend, Don Wittman, lost his battle with cancer in a hospital in Winnipeg this past Saturday. He was 71.

From CBC Sports:

“The family wishes to acknowledge the tremendous outpouring of support Don received from friends, colleagues and fans. Thanks to everyone for respecting our privacy at this time,” his son, David, said in a statement.

Wittman joined CBC Sports on the first day of 1961 and embarked on a career that saw him do the play-by-play for or report on Grey Cups, Stanley Cups, curling’s Brier and Tournament of Hearts, the Canadian Open of golf and several exhilarating, disappointing and grave moments at 18 Summer and Winter Olympics.

Our thoughts are with the Wittman family.
