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.
Maybe this will mean that some portion of the fan base will start forming their own opinions instead of regurgitating the crap they here from these psuedoanalysts.

Need to make our voices heard.

TSN 990 all sports-station in English, in Montreal, is needed. It kept me going at work during the long Christmas hours. ****, we need this ****.

I don't get it... I was under the impression that they were doing well. What a shame. I wonder where Melnick will land (?)

Mario Langlois and Jeremy Filosa are both really good.

This is fantastic news! One less thing for all the whiners on this forum to cry about.

"Tony said this!" "Melnick said that!" "Can you believe what Starr said this morning?!"

I expect the majority of the users on this forum to be very happy with this news. I know I am.

Fournier is a kick in the pants, I find him hilarious, although not so knowledgeable as he seems to believe himself to be. Plus, Butch's number is in the rafters so he would shut up about that.

Honestly, I think it kinda sucks (and completely unfair) that there won't be an English sports-station anymore.

Bell wants to challenge Videotron for the French demography, so it makes sense to have a RDS Radio 990.

I guess it came down to choosing between CJAD and TSN 990, and they chose CJAD.

Basically, TSN 990 is being changed to RDS 690 and all the Habs games are going back to CJAD like they were on before, besides that, all the hosts at TSN 990 do not know if they will have jobs or not in the coming months.

So basically, enjoy it while it last's, TSN 990 is history!!!

If you're on twitter and you care about this, get #SaveTSN990 trending.

Thank you.

It sucks, yes, but nowhere near as much as not having a French one until 18:30.

You can't compare. One doesn't take precedence over the other. We're not going to start arguing who deserves what.

Tsn990 has been so bad especially since they made Marinaro their poster boy. Who wants to have a guy just there to tell people how he's always right and turning nothing into large consipracies? Good ridance really I use to listen to them everyday but got so fed up i haven't listened to them in years. Probably took Bergevin a week of listening to that garbage before sending the request to the higher ups to return the show to CJAD, at least CJAD has real comentators.

Don't look but there wasn't an all-franco sports radio station for quite some time now. So things can change for everybody who listens to english radios (not only anglos by the way...).

You do hope that CJAD will review their scheduling and does have a mix of shows including sports.

I wish we could have both. I honestly do. But if If there HAS to be just one, you go with the one with the largest potential listener base.

CKAC going away ****ed everything up.

Well English Montreal just got completely blind-sided. Good thing is CRTC approval takes about 1 year & that gives a lot of time for petitions-rebuttals-etc!!! They won't take our English all sports off air without a war!!!!
