Andres Cantor Speaker Profile
Spanish Sportscaster in the United States
Andres Cantor Biography
AndrÃ©s Cantor is a popular Spanish-language sportscaster in the United States. Born in Argentina, Mr. Cantor primarily provides Spanish-language commentary of soccer matches, though he covers other sports as well; he also has provided soccer commentary in English. As a result, he is well known among anglophones in the United States.
Cantor currently works for Telemundo, one of NBC Universal's networks. At the 2004 Summer Olympics, where Telemundo was the first-ever U.S. Spanish-language network to broadcast the Olympics, Cantor worked as both a studio anchor and the play-by-play announcer for soccer. He went to Telemundo from UnivisiÃ³n. Telemundo's other anchor for the Games, JessÃ Losada, worked with Cantor at UnivisiÃ³n before jumping ship himself. Also, Cantor's soccer partner of almost a decade in UnivisiÃ³n, Norberto Longo, the lead sports analyst for UnivisiÃ³n, also moved to work with Cantor for Telemundo until his death on April 21, 2003, of a heart attack at the age of 62.
Both Cantor and Longo, though knowledgeable about the game, had a knack for conspicuous support on Latin American teams during their World Cup broadcasts, at times to the point of degrading the performances of European, African and Asian teams. This format of broadcasting was especially prevalent in the 1990 and 1994 World Cups, becoming less notable in the 1998 World Cup (with the probable exception of the Argentina vs England match). In the 1990 World Cup Round of 16 match between Cameroon and Colombia, for example, (that the Africans won in OT), Cantor, who was broadcasting the match for Univision, started complaining in Spanish in sheer frustration (after Roger Milla scored two goals in succession for Cameroon) that the Colombians are better than the Cameronians, that the score is inexcusable, etc., thus losing his focus on the commentary.
