Cool.

TSN Radio has a nice ring to it.

All we need now is Radio RDS instead of 98.5 and we are set.

WTF?

Toronto Sport Network, for a MONTRAL station?! That's a good name for you?

I'd be much more concerned by the fact that they're owned by Bell than the Toronto Sports Network part

We knew it was coming when they got the Habs. We are a BIG City again, a major Centre.

So having TSN Radio is the difference between being a big city or not?

A Canadian one, yes! More Mr McKenzie, more info!

Still Local.

TSN Radio 990 in Montreal

In Montreal, THE TEAM 990 becomes TSN Radio 990 giving fans extensive local coverage of the city's sports scene all day long, along with exclusive English-language radio broadcast rights to all Montreal Canadiens games. Sports fans in the greater Montreal area can access the station at 990 on the AM dial.

In addition to being the home of the Montreal Canadiens and the Montreal Impact, TSN Radio 990's weekday programming is a full slate of Montreal-focused programming including the popular MELNICK IN THE AFTERNOON show with Mitch Melnick and THE MORNING SHOW with Denis Casavant, Elliott Price and Shaun Starr.

Doesn't roll off the tongue like Team 990. It adds two extra syllables. Will miss the Team 990.

Mark my words: RDS radio soon to be ...since CKAC Sports went away in early september. Mathias Brunet wrote that a new french sports radio station will see the day in early 2012 !

No mention of Marinaro in the press release?

In Toronto, I find the TSN 1050 to be awful!
Fan590, now Sportsnet 590 sucks now too.

It's almost as if Sports stations don't like to talk about sports in Toronto.

I'm forced to stream ESPN radio online.

Have they said if they will still carry Bob McKeown?

Melnyk was swearing about possibly losing Stephen Brunt this afternoon.
