Legendary sportscaster Bernie Pascall to join 15th annual Commonwealth Cup

Bernie Pascall

For 30 years, if there was a sports event worth covering in British Columbia, Bernie Pascall had it covered. For the man who was a regular staple of the supper hour for many British Columbians, it was just that simple. If you wanted your sports, you went to Bernie and he delivered. Every night.

Over the years, Bernie Pascall became one of the province’s most recognizable media figures, covering sports for CTV nationally and serving as a mainstay on the BCTV 6 p.m. NewsHour. He commentated the Canucks play-by-play for many years, providing memorable moments for fans across the region.

Following his departure from BCTV in 1999, Pascall was chosen by the provincial government to complete a report on violence in hockey. The Pascall Report remains one of only two government-commissioned reports on the game, highlighting his influence and dedication to the sport.

Pascall’s contribution to the profession hasn’t gone unrecognized. In 2004, he was inducted into the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and, in 2006, into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame. He was selected six times as the ACTRA Sportscaster of the Year in Western Canada.

And for 2024, organizers are thrilled to have Bernie Pascall back, joining the 15th annual Commonwealth Cup in support of the PG Hospice Palliative Care Society’s Home Hospice program. This prestigious event will be held at Aberdeen Glen on July 16, offering participants the unique opportunity to golf alongside a broadcasting legend.
