ANDRES CANTOR SIGNS DEAL WITH UNIVISION COMPETITOR TELEMUNDO
Published April 20, 2000
Soccer announcer Andres Cantor, whose "Gooooaal" call was a "trademark" of Univision's soccer coverage, has signed a multiyear agreement with rival Spanish-language broadcaster Telemundo, according to Nellie Andreeva of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. As he was at Univision, Cantor will be Telemundo's "prime soccer play-by-play announcer and weekend sports anchor." Andreeva writes that Cantor "has his announcing job cut out for him since Telemundo has acquired the rights" to MLS games this year. What "is different at Telemundo is that Cantor will be able to do non-sports- related projects." Cantor "hasn't decided yet what opportunities he is going to pursue outside of sports, but sources said he is evaluating hosting a reality series for Telemundo" (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, 4/20).
