Foster Hewitt Award

Foster Hewitt Award

The Foster Hewitt Award has been the name of two different awards for excellence in sports broadcasting, named for Canadian radio broadcaster Foster Hewitt.

One, the ACTRA Foster Hewitt Award, was presented annually by ACTRA, the Canadian association of actors and broadcasters. This award was open to any sports broadcaster in Canada. ACTRA ceased presenting awards in 1986.

The other, the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award, has been presented since 1982 by the Hockey Hall of Fame exclusively to hockey broadcasters.
