Bob Cole is looking forward to sitting back and watching both the Masters and the world men's curling championship this weekend.

And, as always, some hockey.

But on Sunday, the retired hockey announcer will be front and centre when he receives a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television at the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards show. The award is presented "for an exceptional lifetime of work that has had a profound impact on the media industry at home or abroad."

In typical Cole fashion, the honour was unexpected.

"I was absolutely floored. I couldn't believe it, really," he said in an interview from his home in St. John's, N.L.

His first thought was why?

"There's lots of people that can be recognized for this. But I guess they have a committee and they chose me," he added with a chuckle. "I'm very grateful and humbled, of course. My family's pretty proud, I think."

For many Canadians, Cole's voice was the ideal soundtrack for hockey.
