But radio rights aren't the standalone they used to be. Now they are tied up in various content delivery platforms beyond the radio. Corus is a content producer, but they lack the range of delivery options that a company like Bell has.

Sports broadcasting in Canada is a two horse race -- Bell and Rogers, and Rogers has no local sports radio station, yet.
