Host, Bleacher Report Betting
One of Canada’s Most Revered Sports Interviewers and Correspondents
Cabral Richards, better known as “Cabbie”, has brought a fresh approach to the world of sports reporting. A Ryerson RTA graduate, Richards found his calling in front of the camera. He interned at The Score in 2001, where he pitched his own show – Cabbie on the Street. The show transformed from a set of five-minute interviews to a popular half-hour weekly segment.
His “in-your-face” interviews with some of the world’s elite athletes have gained him fame across North America. From an ongoing “friendship” saga with Kobe to dressing room “insiders” with NHLers, Cabbie has built quite the rep.
Cabbie hosted and produced Cabbie Presents, a weekly segment on TSN’s Sportscentre- Canada’s highest-rated special channel. Eventually, he produced a Cabbie Presents: The Podcast, where he interviewed a variety of sports stars and celebrities. Additionally, Cabbie acted as a special correspondent for The Marilyn Dennis Show on CTV. In this role, Cabbie offered a male perspective on issues, and hit the streets of Toronto to talk to everyday Canadians.
In 2019, it was announced that Cabbie would be leaving TSN to join a weekly show at Bleacher Report Betting. Hosting alongside Kelly Stewart, you can catch Cabbie on Sunday mornings live on the B/R app.
