Turner Sports announced more of its NHL broadcast team on Tuesday and one Capitals media member is getting a huge opportunity. Tarik El-Bashir, who has contributed coverage of the Caps over the last decade via The Athletic, Washington Post, and NBC Sports Washington, has been hired as a contributor.
“I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing team!” El-Bashir said in a tweet. “Thanks to everyone at Turner for the opportunity. And, yes, I’m still going to be covering the Caps full-time for The Athletic. Let’s go!”
Tarik joins Jackie Redmond and Jennifer Botterill as the other Turner Sports NHL contributors.
