One of Telemundo’s most famous soccer announcers is a proud Peruvian Jew

Those who’ve watched that American Spanish language network during a World Cup, Olympics or other major soccer tournament have probably heard Sammy Sadovnik call a game. Sadovnik is a play-by-play announcer who has been with Telemundo since 2007, but he’s covered sports since 1989. He’s also a proud Jew from Peru who visits Israel every year, and a mentee of Andres Cantor, the Jewish Telemundo announcer who perhaps is most responsible for popularizing the “gooooaaaal” call in the English-speaking world.
