Mr. Gordon’s background as a sports commentator also includes being the play-by-play commentary voice (alongside famous West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding) for the West Indies vs. Rest-of-the-World Match at Skydome which was broadcast live on 89.5 FM and across the Caribbean. He was also the voice of the famous Indian-Pakistan cricket series in Toronto during the mid-90s.

In Canada, he also played for the West Indies Toronto & District Cricket League Team as a fast bowler. Mr. Gordon first fell in love with radio at the age of nine when he bought a pocket radio with money he earned while working with his Grandmother pulling weeds from the flowers in HopeBotanical Gardens in Jamaica. For years, that radio never left his side, and he has been living and breathing radio ever since. Fitzroy Gordon founded Canada’s only Black and Caribbean owned and operated radio station G98.7FM, which was licensed on June 9, 2011 and officially launched in November of the same year. Mr. Gordon has dedicated this radio station to provide a voice for the Black and Caribbean population of Canada and to all Canadians who love and enjoy our culture. Most recently, Mr. Gordon has made history again when he was granted approval from the Canadian Radio Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate Canada’s first ever national Black and Caribbean television station, which is slated to be launched in the fall of 2015.
