Robert Glen Suitor (born November 24, 1962) is a sports broadcaster and retired defensive back who played eleven seasons for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Currently, he broadcasts CFL games for TSN, which he has been doing since 1995. Suitor attended Carson Graham Secondary School.
In 1984, Suitor was drafted out of Simon Fraser University into the CFL with the 10th pick overall by the Saskatchewan Roughriders. In his 11-year career, Suitor was a three-time CFL All-Star (1991–93) and a four-time Western All-Star (1989, 1990, 1992, 1993). He won the Grey Cup with Saskatchewan in 1989 (and was the holder on the game-winning field goal). He ranks among the CFL all-time leaders in interceptions with 51.
Suitor began his broadcasting career while still playing with the Roughriders, when he became the sports director and morning co-host with CJME-AM radio and CIZL-FM from 1991-93.
After joining the TSN broadcast booth as a guest analyst for the 1994 Grey Cup, Suitor retired from the CFL prior to the 1995 season, and joined TSN as a full-time television game analyst. Suitor currently works as a game analyst on CFL on TSN, alongside play-by-play analyst Chris Cuthbert.
Suitor is also co-host of The Green Zone, which is a daily sports show that airs from 3 to 6 p.m. on 980 CJME in Regina and 650 CKOM in Saskatoon. The show is co-hosted by Jamie Nye.
