Between Jeff Patterson’s tirade against Lions fans last Thursday and 1040’s reduced Lions coverage, I’m thinking the Lions should drop 1040 and switch the broadcasts over to CKNW and AM 730.
The Whitecaps and Giants are on 730. The Lions would be far better suited on a station that can give them exclusive coverage. And CKNW has a huge audience. The current format on 730 is getting them nowhere and they could use the Lions as a boost especially before the Western Final.
It’s no longer relevant what 1040’s committment to the Lions was in the past. This is here and now.
Can Rick Ball and Guilio switch over to 730? How does all that radio rights stuff work? Can the broadcasts be switched over to another station if the Lions feel the current coverage doesn’t meet their expectations?
