TORONTO - The CBC has suffered several major blows in recent months — significant job cuts, the loss of hockey broadcast rights and the recent dramatic departure of one of its most prominent personalities.On Tuesday, the public broadcaster delivered an increasingly rare good-news story. And it turned to a top-flight sports showcase that it knows how to do very well.The CBC and Radio-Canada renewed their commitment to Olympic coverage by securing the broadcast rights to the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea and 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo. The network will partner with Bell Media and Rogers Media to deliver the Games.I think it shows the belief that the Olympic committee has in us continuing to deliver compelling Olympic moments to Canadians, said CBC president Hubert Lacroix.Executives from all three media companies agreed the demands of todays Olympic broadcasting culture make it very challenging — from both a financial and manpower perspective — to go it alone with an event of this magnitude. In addition, consumers now want access to all events in real time on a broadcasting format that works for them. Jeffrey Orridge, executive director of sports properties and general manager of the Olympics at CBC, said a team effort will help facilitate that.We are collaborating on the production, he said. We are going to share airwaves, were going to share technical resources, were going to share our expertise and were going to share talent.Specific coverage details havent been finalized but given its strong reach, expect the CBC to broadcast the top-tier events. TSN/RDS would get the next level down, followed by Sportsnet, then TSN2, and then Sportsnet One, Orridge said.What were going to basically offer is a 24-hour Olympic network, said Bell Medias Phil King, president of CTV sports and entertainment programming. If you have CBC, TSN and Sportsnet, you will have a 24-hour Olympic network.Financial terms of the deal werent revealed. Orridge said the agreement was respectful of the stature of the Games and certainly fiscally responsible on the part of the public broadcaster. I cant give you specifics on terms of the agreement, he said. But suffice it to say that weve put together an extraordinarily viable business model that will be either a break-even or revenue-positive model.The CBC, which had the broadcast rights for the recent Sochi Olympics and has been a longtime rights-holder, was already tabbed to show the 2016 Summer Games in Rio.Its a nation-building and nation-sharing event and that brings communities together, Orridge said. Part of our ethos is about being a catalyst and an inspiration for our communities and cultivating and promoting and highlighting and showcasing Canadian talent.And thats what we do.The broadcaster reclaimed the rights to the 2014 Games after losing the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and the 2012 London Games to CTV. The three broadcasters worked together at the Sochi Games, although this deal is more extensive for the specialty networks.Longtime sports broadcasting executive Keith Pelley, now president of Rogers Media, helped build the broadcast consortium model that was used in Vancouver.There is no question that you need multiple broadcasters and multiple outlets to be able to give Canadians what they want from the Olympic Games, Pelley said. There are so many events going on at the same time that one individual broadcaster — regardless of the multi-platforms — can no longer serve the public the way that they need to to actually experience the Games and thats why this partnership came to fruition.Pelley added Rogers has worked closely with the CBC on several initiatives, including the current NHL deal.This is an extension of that, the partnership is just a little bit reversed, he said. They will control the editorial content and the sales and we will be there to support them in every way that they possibly can and give them the airtime to give Canadians unprecedented choice.Orridge said talks with Rogers and Bell began months ago, and were easy to kickstart given the success of the Sochi experience.The news comes at a tumultuous time for CBC, which is being sued by star radio personality Jian Ghomeshi, who alleges breach of confidence, bad faith and defamation by the public broadcaster in a $55-million lawsuit.The network severed ties with Ghomeshi over the weekend because of information it had received about the Q radio show host. Ghomeshi said he has been fired for his sexual behaviour.Last November, the broadcaster lost NHL rights to Rogers Media in a whopping $5.2-billion deal. That led to a dramatic loss of advertising revenue for a network already struggling with federal budget cuts.In April, Lacroix announced that 657 jobs would be slashed to meet a $130-million budget shortfall. Lacroix said at the time 42 per cent of the sports department would be laid off, trimming 38 sports jobs from 90 current positions. In June, he said there would be an additional 1,000 to 1,500 positions cut by 2020.He also announced in April the broadcaster would no longer compete for professional sports rights and would cover fewer sports events, including amateur athletics.But the Olympics are still a product they want to be associated with, Lacroix said.Its a way for us to connect and to tell stories to Canadians from all across the country, he said. This ability to do this in a context with partners allows us to bring the best Olympic experience to Canadians, bar none.Lacroix added the partnership with Rogers and Bell will mean more comprehensive coverage for Canadians.Its a textbook example of us being able to bring the whole broadcasting community to the service of Canadians, he said. If it had not been for open-mindedness and eagerness and interest of our friends at Bell and Rogers, Canadians would not be getting the kind of coverage that they will be in 18 and 20.———Follow @GregoryStrongCP on Twitter.

The 42-ranked Czech saved seven break points while converting his one chance, and defeated the No. 3 seed in 1 hour 46 minutes. Rosol, who lost in the final in Stuttgart against Roberto Bautista Agut on Sunday, awaits the winner between Philipp Kohlschreiber or 2011 champion Gilles Simon.The Winnipeg Jets will skate in front of their home fans for the first time this season on Friday night as they welcome the Nashville Predators to MTS Centre. You can catch the action LIVE on TSN3 in the Jets region at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and can be heard on TSN 1290 with coverage beginning at 6pm ct. The Jets began the campaign with three in a row on the road, opening the schedule with a 6-2 win over Arizona before suffering back-to-back losses at San Jose and Los Angeles. Winnipeg scored just one goal in the setbacks, shut out by the Sharks on Saturday before falling 4-1 to the Kings the following night. Bryan Little had the lone goal versus the Kings, his third of the season, but Michael Hutchinson yielded three goals on 13 shots before getting lifted in the second period. Ondrej Pavelec came in and made 17 saves on 18 shots in relief. Yeah, we knew (the Kings) were going to come hard, said Hutchinson. They dropped their first two games and being back at home we knew they were going to come hard and they did. Its just unfortunate that we couldnt pull it out tonight. Winnipeg is set to play five straight at home and Pavelec should get the start tonight. He is 3-3-1 with a 2.21 goals against average and .927 save percentage in eight games versus the Preds, including seven starts. While the Jets will enjoy their home opener, the Predators hit the road for the first time following a three-game homestand to begin the season. They won the first two under new head coach Peter Laviolette before dropping the finale 3-2 in a shootout on Tuesday against Calgary. The Flames Joe Colborne opened the tiebreaker with a goal on Pekka Rinne and both James Neal and Olli Jokinen failed to score on their chances for the Predators. Filip Forsberg and Mike Ribeiro had the goals in regulation, while Rinne made 26 saves through overtime. You give Calgary credit. They came in here and played a hard-working game and earned the ttwo points, said Laviolette.dddddddddddd The Predators will also visit Chicago on Saturday and Rinne may get the call tonight in net given his history versus the Jets. He is unbeaten against them, going 4-0-0 with a 2.90 GAA and .900 save percentage. Forsberg aims to continue his hot start tonight as he has notched four points through three games. The young winger had just five points in 13 games with Nashville last season. Jokinen, meanwhile, will face the Jets for the first time since leaving the club as a free agent. He netted 25 goals and 57 points over 127 games the last two seasons while with Winnipeg and scored two goals with five points versus the Predators last season. Nashville, though, went 3-2-0 in last seasons series and is 9-3-2 over the past 14 encounters.
