Rob Leth brings his sense of humor, outgoing personality, and a love for sports to Global News as Sports Anchor.
Leth first joined the Global team in 2003 as sports videographer and weekend sports desk anchor, later moving to the news beat as a reporter for Global Toronto.
While with Global, Leth has covered a number of major sporting events including the 2014 Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Toronto Blue Jays spring training in 2013, the 2013 Grey Cup in Toronto, the Leafs playoffs in Boston last spring, and the 2011 Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia.
In early 2014, Leth was reintroduced as Sports Anchor for Global News, giving him the chance to show off his sense of humour and his passion for athletics while telling the stories of local amateur athletes and events.
Whether it’s getting drenched by the splash of a passing car, or getting beaten-up by stunt performers, Leth isn’t afraid to be the punch-line if it means putting a smile on your face. He’s best known for dressing up as a number of characters on the show including the Tin Man, Mad Hatter, Cookie Monster, James Bond, Chewbacca, and the Incredible Hulk.
In his spare time, Leth can be found listening to Pearl Jam and U2 or watching Star Wars.
