He left for a while ago, was announced on the air IIRC.

He is working for RDS-RDS2 full time doing football and baseball.

When rds 2 launched he quit. It's a tragedy for morning listeners, IMO. He was better than Price and Starr put together. After Melnick, I thought he was the best single voice on the station.

Melnick is brutal. Thinks way too highly of himself. The Morning Show was the best program when Casavant was around. Him and Price worked well together and Starr worked as a sidekick. They were all pretty funny together.

My dad listening to the game on 990 the other night and said it was just brutal. Apparently the guys they have make CJAD look like superstars of the broadcasting world. Why didn't they hire the bulldogs guy?

Derek Wills? No idea. He would have been a solid choice.

Yeah that brings up my second question... wtf is up with their play by play and color men?


every time i tune in i expect to hear the guy they hired from toronto and instead it is someone else. Bobby Dalis is just brutal on color as well...

they need a legit color guy, not an ex-player... when McGuire was at CJAD that was when it worked best. Are you telling me there are no ex-coaches or scouts they can hire to do color?

John Bartlett is who you're thinking of. He does play by play. Dollas and Momesso split colour commentary.

lol They have the same color guy most of the time in sergio momesso. John Bartlett is pretty good at what he does actually I find.
