With the launch of The Sports Network (TSN) in 1984, Leibel became the first woman to host a national sports program—Sportsdesk. In 1986, she returned to CBC as co-host of Sportsweekend with Brian Williams. She is Canada's premier show jumping analyst, and has been a member of on-air teams covering thoroughbred racing for both CBC and NBC.
Leibel has dedicated her career to the coverage of amateur sports and was the first woman to do play-by-play for the Olympics, handling cycling, equestrian and white-water events for NBC during the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona. She also hosted CBC's in-depth sports interview show Champions...with Terry Leibel in 1994.
