Mark Lee (born c. 1956) is a Canadian sportscaster formerly with CBC Sports who has covered women's ice hockey, Olympic games and the Pan Am Games. He was born in Ottawa around 1956[1] to William and Doreen Croswell Lee, and he attended the Earl of March Secondary School in Ottawa.[2][3] He quarterbacked the Carleton Ravens football team for four years, graduating with a journalism degree. He then worked as a news anchor at CFCF radio in Montreal. Lee then moved to Toronto where he worked at CBC Radio as a national sports reporter where he also hosted the sports magazine show The Inside Track.

Lee currently worked as the Western Conference play-by-play voice for Hockey Night in Canada. In addition, he read most of the pre-recorded continuity and sponsorship announcements on CBC Sports broadcasts (such as "The following is a [live] presentation of CBC Sports"). For the 2008 Summer Olympics, Lee covered the track and field events for CBC.[4]

Lee has earned a Gemini Award, two ACTRA Awards.[5] He lives in Cambridge, Ontario with his family.[6]
