New Face on the Beat

Comcast SportsNet Anchor/ Reporter Lisa Hillary - photo from A-ChannelOFB has learned of a new reporter assigned to the Washington Capitals. Lisa Hillary has joined Comcast SportsNet as an anchor/reporter. Lisa will serve as the primary reporter for the network’s Washington Capitals coverage. Along with her duties with the Capitals, she will be anchoring the network’s live daily news shows, SportsRise and SportsNite.
Lisa was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario and began her career in broadcasting as a general assignment reporter for CHUM Television in Pembroke, Ontario. She then moved to Calgary, Alberta, working for TSN anchoring the weekend edition of SportsCentre and covering the Flames along with the NFL and CFL. Her most recent assignment before Comcast SportsNet found her back at CHUM in 2005 as an anchor/reporter for A-Channel Ottawa.
A sports enthusiast who loves tennis and swimming, Lisa said this about her job in broadcasting.

I love the interaction of broadcasting. The highlight of every day is being given the opportunity to get up close with people in the community.”

In adding to their coverage of an underserved beat, Comcast SportsNet has rewarded the Captials’ faithful with a seasoned hockey reporter. OFB welcomes Lisa to her second nation’s capital and it is our hope that she brings to her new beat a Canadian sensibility for covering hockey in this burgundy and gold town.

    “In adding to their coverage of an undeserved beat…”
    Please tell me you meant to say “underserved” 🙂

    jlrpuck, What a difference one little “r” makes, eh? Yes, you are correct. Thanks for the correction.
    TG, competition is healthy, no?

  6. J.P. says:

    I’ve often heard the advice to “never trust a man with two first names.” I wonder if similar advice with respect to women is warranted.

  7. GoBucks says:

    If she wants to get “up close with the community” I might have to move back to DC.

  8. Caps Nut says:

    Didn’t Jill Sorensen run the Caps beat last year for the Caps?

    Just wanted to add that Lisa also worked out of the Toronto studio the last 6 or so months that she was with TSN. Glad to see she’s doing well.

    Lisa also worked at a little local radio station in Pembroke Ontario on the early morning show. She all of a sudden disappeared. Glad to see she has moved on and up. Miss you here Lisa!

  14. Glebe Gibber says:

    She knows hockey and she can be very funny too! Finally a “real” hockey expert covering the Caps. Looking forward to her show.

    I miss Hillary talking with the Caps players on the ice right after the games-but I guess this is a step up for her and I am sure she will do a great job-congratulations Hillary.
