Victor Rauter (born 1955) is a Canadian sportscaster for The Sports Network (TSN) since 1985. He has covered mostly auto racing, curling, and soccer since 1986 as well as hockey, baseball, bowling, squash, volleyball, cycling, equestrian and skiing. He was the first host for the CFL on TSN from 1987–1991.

Before joining TSN, he was a sportscaster at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto covering the Olympic Games. He also worked for CFTR radio in Toronto as a news and sports reader before joining the Global Television Network in Toronto for four years.

In 1999, he was nominated for a Gemini Award as Canada's top sportscaster, and was inducted into the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame in 2006.

Rauter's best-known catch phrases are "Make the final..." with the final score at the end of a game, and "Count 'em up—1, 2, 3, 4..." [or more] after the last stone of an end scoring three or more.
