    If we have I've forgotten, but as I understand/see it he's more than announcer. He gives off more "color" (random facts about the skaters, their coaches, etc) than the two "experts".they all "call"/"announce" the event.

    A lot of errors for Haruka, but she's such a gorgeous skater.

    I don't like Tracy's style, anyway, because it is odd and annoying... Terry went to school for this stuff, so he's going to sound normal compared to any "expert" he's with. But even he sounds annoyed at being "ignored"
    Tracey Wilson is probably the least annoying of all of the commentators. She is very knowledgeable and positive. She does not over commentate

    I agree with Chris Howarth. Once she gets her jumps clean, Imai's program will be really good.

    Not feeling Haruka's program. She needs more sophistication and control to pull off that music.

    I can't stand her mispronunciations and her habit of mentioning the other commentators by name every five seconds...

    I understand your reasoning. I'm just old enough to remember when there was no such thing as "color" commentators. They were originally brought in to football games to give a little more "color" or description than the announcer could give.
    When Dick Button was brought in in the '60s it was to give more color to the play-by-play. In skating the color commentators are really needed because the announcer doesn't know anything about the sport. If I can, I will try to find some history on the term.

    WHAT is Zhang wearing? It looks like she is about to go sky diving from a plane! What an eyesore!

    I like her better than Sandra, who I think is overly-critical.
