I liked TSN990 but they would talk about far too much crap other than the Habs besides their segments.

Link?

Surprising the Habs are partly owned by Bell and TSN990 is owned by Bell.

So apparenlty TSN990 will become RDS Radio 990, all French sports radio.

There is talks that TSN990 will disappear and hope to return at TSN690.

this would be horrible news

TSN990 is the only sports radio station in the city.

it seems that they would abolish the station all together.

Bell also owns Astral, and they own CJAD.

HH 07-10-2012 11:39 AM

CJAD isn't all sports right? Or else I would say change it to TSN 800

I thought they were switching to a lower frequency so they'd have a broader broadcast radius?

As long as The Games are still on and radio and Marinaro is canned. I`ll be ok with this....

FrankMTL 07-10-2012 11:40 AM

So wait a second...If TSN 990 radio becomes RDS 990, a french station, what will happen with all the great people that work at TSN 990?? I like Melnick, Starr, and Elliott..

Still waiting for you to name a single "great" person that works there... Wait, who does the WWE show again?

Speak French classes, obviously

Marc the Habs Fan 07-10-2012 11:44 AM

RDS has 3 TV stations already, as if they need a radio station too. Garbage. Get ready for more Gaston Therrien and Normand Flynn spewing crap to the population...

TSN Radio 990 will eventually become RDS Radio 690. Montreal Canadiens games-if they are played in 2012-will be heard on TSN 990.C'est tout.

Well it's a matter of opinion...I enjoy the morning show and Melnick in the afternoon..I'm sure i'm not the only one.

Jack Bourdain 07-10-2012 11:47 AM

TSN 990 was supposed to become TSN 690 or something. I don't think they're going to disappear.

Huh...so there would be RDS 990 (french) and RDS 690 (english) if I understand this correctly? Talk about confusing.

Not sure why Habs games are being moved to CJAD if the TSN 990 crew would just be moving to 690 then...

red devil 07-10-2012 11:52 AM

Dave Stubbs ‏@Dave_Stubbs
A colleague very well placed believes TSN 990 is cooked. Decision had to be made to convert 990 or CJAD into a French station. CJAD lives

This is confusing, hopefully they still will have McKenzie, Friedman, Dreger, Nilan and the other guests they used to have every week.

HH 07-10-2012 11:54 AM

Basically 990 wave will die in Montreal. TSN 990 will become RDS 690. CJAD 800 gets Habs games in English. No all-sports English station.

jwolf 07-10-2012 11:57 AM

It's been talked about and known for quite some time that TSN 990 is moving to 690 before the Fall. I don't understand why they are losing the Habs broadcast one year removed from acquiring it.

Oh, I get it now: Bell owns Astral, Globe and a piece of the Canadiens. So basically, it's as if I moved my bicycle from the garage to the basement. Ah, this lovely age of corporate bohemoths...

Does anyone else miss the good ole days when companies actually competed with one another??

Andy 07-10-2012 11:57 AM

Hopefully this is the end of Marinario's whine fests.

danyhabsfan 07-10-2012 11:57 AM

RDS
RDS2
RDS info
RDS 990

RDS XXX (feat Chantal Machabée and Valérie Sardin)

RDS meteo

TSN changed to RDS period. RDS will get the 690 wave and TSN Radio will die in Montreal.

And who's great on the french side?

Danny Dube and McGuire cover the Habs games well, but outside of them, who was even good? Lajoie? Fournier? Villeneuve? All bad.

In any event, there should be two sports radio channels, one in french one in english. The fact we don't, and apparently won't, is pathetic.
