Gord Miller (CAN)

Born: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, June 21, 1964

Gord Miller’s dedication to the annual U20 at a time when most people happily vacation in the sun has helped TSN make the “World Junior Championships” one of the most successful hockey broadcasts in North America. His support and his dedication to the tournament, which stretches to 18 years and counting, the respect he commands from the broadcast booth, and his knowledge of the event and its history are unparalleled.

For millions of Canadians, for whom the IIHF World Juniors have become an essential Christmas and New Year’s tradition, Miller’s voice and characteristic play-by-play style have come to personify the event.

He started working at TSN in 1990 as a reporter, and three years later he started a career in the broadcast booth at the IIHF World Championships. In short order he was doing the NHL, Memorial Cup, and Women’s World Championship, and in 2001 he worked as the English play-by-play man for the Montreal Canadiens telecasts.

In 2002, Miller became the top play-by-play man for TSN and drew work appropriate to his reputation, culminating with the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. But while he is well-known in North America for his NHL assignments, his true passion and greatest contributions have been with TSN’s remarkable coverage of the IIHF U20 World Championship.

Miller first hosted the U20 in 1993 from the TSN studios, and two years later he started an 18-year run of annual Christmastime trips to the event. He worked first as a colour man and in 2002 started doing play-by-play for which he is now famous.

In 2008, Miller was nominated for a Gemini Award (Canadian TV) for Best Play-by-Play Announcer for his work at the 2008 World U20 gold-medal game between Canada and Sweden in the Czech Republic.
