Blue Jays television broadcasters, Scorebook Magazine 1983 vol. 7
Don Chevrier had a great voice, was very knowledgeable, and was a supremely versatile play by play man (check out the list above). As his obit in the Toronto Star noted, “If there was a sport Don Chevrier couldn’t call, it was probably only because he hadn’t been asked.” He called the very first Blue Jays game on CBC in 1977 and carried on broadcasting the team’s games for 20 years.
Tony Kubek was also a real pro, getting high profile World Series, ALCS, and All-Star game assignments for NBC. He was honored by the Baseball Hall of Fame with the Ford C. Frick Award in 2009. He was the first Frick winner whose broadcast career was solely in television, and the first to have called games for a Canadian team (he did colour for the Jays from 1977 to 1989).
Fergie Olver was a real dolt. On top of his beside-the-dugout reporting, he was also the host of a Canadian game show called Just Like Mom from 1980 to 1985 that was a kid/mom version of The Newlywed Game. Here is some footage from the show where you won’t believe how pervy/creepy he looks.
