ANDRES CANTOR SIGNS DEAL WITH UNIVISION COMPETITOR TELEMUNDO

          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).
