As a result of both Bell Canada and Rogers Communications having an ownership stake in MLSE, Maple Leafs broadcasts are split between the two media companies. Colour commentary for Bell's television broadcasts is performed by Ray Ferraro, while play-by-play is provided by Chris Cuthbert and Gord Miller. Colour commentary for Rogers' television broadcasts is performed by Greg Millen, while play-by-play is provided by John Bartlett. MLSE operates a regional specialty channel, the Leafs Nation Network; the Leafs Nation Network broadcasts programming related to the Maple Leafs, as well as games for the Toronto Marlies, the Maple Leafs' American Hockey League affiliate. On Saturday nights, the Toronto Maple Leafs have always been on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. Bill Hewitt did the play-by-play on most, but not all games through 1980-81. Bob Cole did numerous Maple Leafs games starting in 1973-74, most Maple Leafs games starting in 1981-82. Maple Leafs road games were televised on the Telemeter pay TV service for four years starting on February 28, 1960, when Bill Hewitt and Bob Wolff did the inaugural telecast from New York's Madison Square Garden.
Until 1961, only Sunday games were shown and in 1961-62 and 1962-63, Bill Hewitt did play-by-play on all road games played in the United States. The Maple Leafs appeared on television on Wednesdays starting in 1960, first on CFTO on CTV and CHCH with Bill Hewitt on play-by-play. To be more specific, CFTO aired midweek Maple Leafs games starting from the station's inception in 1960 all the way to 1976-77. CHCH Hamilton broadcast them from 1977-78 to 1987-88. Global's CIII channel 41 had them until at least 1991-92. In 1981-82, following Bill Hewitt's sudden retirement, various combinations worked these games. Either Mickey Redmond or Gary Dornhoefer served on colour commentary with play-by-play provided from Dave Hodge, Danny Gallivan, or Dan Kelly. Jim Hughson did play-by-play for the Wednesday games from 1982-86, the first three years with Gary Dornhoefer and the fourth with Brad Selwood. In 1986-87, Harry Neale became the mid-week analyst, play-by-play was done by either Peter Maher, Bruce Buchanan or Erik Tomas.
In 1988-89, Joe Bowen did play-by-play on midweek TV games thru 1994-95. From 1995–97, Jiggs McDonald did play-by-play before Bowen's return to TV the following season; when Bowen was doing TV, radio play-by-play was done by Ken Daniels thru 1994-95 and Dennis Beyak starting in 1997-98.

Both Bell and Rogers' radio broadcasts have their colour commentary provided by Jim Ralph, with play-by-play provided by Joe Bowen. Foster Hewitt was the Leafs' first play-by-play broadcaster, providing radio play-by-play from 1927 to 1978. In addition, he provided play-by-play for television from 1952 to 1958, colour commentary from 1958 to 1961.
Aired over CFCA, Hewitt's broadcast was picked up by the Canadian Radio Broadcasting Commission in 1933, moving to CBC Radio three years later. As the show was aired on Canadian national radio, Hewitt became famous for the phrase "He shoots, he scores!" as well as his sign-on at the beginning of each broadcast, "Hello and hockey fans in the United States and Newfoundland."
