    Tracy Wilson

    Just wondering why she is not commentating for CBC this year? Is she working for another network this year? CTV? I miss her...

    She must be because she was at the practices yesterday.

    For the last few years, Tracy has done Skate America for NBC while Kurt does it either solo or with someone like Lori Nichol so this is nothing new. She may still be back later in the season for CBC.

    Erin is correct. Tracy is listed as a member for the NBC team for Skate America -
    COMMENTATORS: Tom Hammond will call the action alongside Scott Hamilton, Sandra Bezic, Tracy Wilson and Andrea Joyce from Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Mich.

    I hope she's with CTV for Skate Canada next weekend..then back with CBC for Cup of China, as I also miss her expertise & insight. I didn't get much from Lane & expected way more technical commentary considering her level of knowledge.

    What network will Wilson be with for olympic coverage I wonder?

    Bummer about the Olympics... I think she is the best! Although, I have been pleasantly surprised by Carol Lane today. Glad to hear that she is still working... was worried that maybe something had happened to prevent her from commentating this year.

    Rats. Just once I'd like to see Tracy Wilson call the Olympic ice dance competition for CBC. She's wasted on NBC because she becomes so politically careful.

    Would really prefer Tanith Belbin as commentator.

    I agree and I think that she just does dance on NBC. I wonder if Kurt will be flying solo. Tracy tempers him.

    Thanks for the info.! I miss Tracy, like Scott Hamilton, they are my mainstays for American figure skating. I loved them from the 90's to nowadays, and miss them both.

    I'll take Tracy back here in Canada and then have Tanith for the US viewers. I'd do that setup any day of the week.
    Crazy about sports!

    I like that proposal a lot!!!! Perhaps Canada can give some more incentive to Tracy to work in her own country.

    I'm hoping this will be Tom Hammond's last Winter Olympics. He's going to be 70 next year, and his current contract with NBC ends in 2016.

    I think Tanith is a bit young to be retiring from anything other than skating competitively

    Tanith actually impresses me. I like that she is not afraid to point out weaknesses in skaters and tell you exactly how things should look in the dance. She's really great!

    I'll take Tracy on CBC for the Olympics too. She definitely tempers Kurt and has had a beautiful way of getting him out of some sticky comments... But alas, she seems to always work for the American networks at big events. I wish they could find some way of keeping her with the Canadian networks... $$

    I know i was hoping also that Tom Hammond wasn't going to be doing skating this year too. They need to get Terry Gannon to replace him.
