CTV News Sports Team
Sports Editor / 6:00 Sports Anchor
Born in Toronto, living his dream in London, Norman became Sports Editor at CTV News in 2007, but dedicated his life to the business long before that. His journey in broadcasting began in Simcoe over 10 years ago. Since then, he’s made stops in Kitchener and Hamilton before arriving in the Forest City to work exclusively in Sports TV. In addition to CTV Sports Editor, Norm serves as 6:00 PM Sports Anchor in both London and Windsor. He also hosts his own radio show.
11:00 Sports Anchor
Marek was born in Timmins, Ontario where hockey is king. Saturday night hockey was a religion, and the family living room was his chapel. That’s where his journey began, and progressively that road led south. In 1997 Marek arrived in London wide eyed, and ready for the ‘big city’. It’s been a great journey since, with stories that have made him laugh, inspired him, or touched him on a personal level. Whether it’s highlights, or an onsite production, for Marek it’s always about the story.

Bob BellaciccoSports ReporterAfter completing the Advertising program at St. Clair College in Windsor, Bob attended Spec’s Howard School of Broadcast Arts in Southfield Michigan where he really caught the broadcasting bug. Bob gained some great experience volunteering at Cogeco Cable learning from some talented people who still look out for him to this day. His first “broadcasting job” was at CBC-Windsor working behind the scenes. In February ’98, after 4 years at the CBC, Bob joined The New WI. He started as weekend reporter, and then worked on the morning show. However, his ambition has always been to do sports and in 2004 he got that opportunity. Bob has covered some great events like the NBA finals and the 2006 Superbowl but says his biggest thrill is being able to share in the achievements of our local athletes and teams. Bob competes in the Windsor Ball Hockey League and plays pick up on the ice as well.
