Encyclopedia > Color commentator

A color commentator (colour commentator in Canada), sometimes known as a color analyst, is a member of the broadcasting team for a sporting event who assists the play-by-play announcer by filling in any time when play is not in progress. It is North American terminology. The color commentator provides expert analysis and background information, such as statistics, strategy and injury reports, on the teams and athletes, and occasionally light humor. Color commentators are often people who used to play and/or coach the sport that they broadcast. American and British English spelling differences are one aspect of American and British English differences. ...

In the United Kingdom the term is largely unknown: a play-by-play announcer is called a commentator. The role of color commentator is not so clearly defined, but the term summariser is sometimes used and former players often appear as pundits, filling a similar role. In Germany, most football matches feature just a single play-by-play announcer, without a color commentator. In Spanish, the word comentarista is used, in opposition to relator who is the play-by-play announcer. In Brazil, the color commentator is usually referred as comentarista, like in Spanish. For soccer broadcasts, Brazilian TV channels usually also use a specialized referee commentator in addition to the normal commentator (almost always a former player or coach). In Australia the term is not used; rather, those giving the analysis alongside the commentator are said to be giving special comments. In Sweden the term expertkommentator is used for a supposedly knowledgeable sidekick to the play-by-play announcer.
