TSN wins Canadian Academy Award for Best Live Sporting Event: Gray Cup 2019

And the Canadian Academy Award winner for Best Live Sporting Event goes to… TSN for its 2019 Gray Cup broadcast.

TSN Vice President and Executive Producer Paul Graham as well as producer Jon Hynes have been named individually. The 107th edition of the Gray Cup beat the 2021 IIHF World Juniors gold medal game, the BMO Nations Cup and Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

This edition of the CFL Championship game featured the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats playing in Calgary at McMahon Stadium. Winnipeg defeated Hamilton 33-12 in a stunning upset as the Bombers claimed their first Gray Cup victory since 1990.

Even though Winnipeg led from start to finish and the decision was never really in doubt, the number of televisions on TSN grew 14% year over year, with an average viewership of 3 682,600.

The fact that every fanbase was trying to end long drafts without hoisting the big silver trophy intrigued people of Hamilton and across the province of Manitoba, as well as Canadians across the country.

Hometown running back Andrew Harris did a show, Keith Urban was a big name at halftime, and the Ticates’ quick offense kept viewers interested in a possible late return.

TSN’s pre-game coverage, which began at 6 p.m. EST, drew 1,952,600 and 1,517,000 after the game. Overall, on Sunday, November 24, 2019, CFL content was among the top three rated TV shows in Canada.

Award-winning quality in the field and on TV.
