CBC's Steve Armitage steps down from Rio 2016 Summer Games broadcast team

Veteran CBC Sports broadcaster Steve Armitage will be missing when CBC's coverage in Brazil begins August 5.

When the 2016 Summer Olympics open next week in Rio, there will be a familiar face missing on CBC Sports coverage.

A staple of CBC’s Olympic Games broadcasts for decades and a familiar voice to sports fans across Canada, the Rio 2016 Olympic Games were to be Armitage’s 16th as a broadcaster.

“I am not going to Rio for the Games because I have no other choice," Armitage said.
