I sent an email today telling the program director what a pile of BS is program changes are. Now we get to listen to more retread Toronto sports, we can find out what kind of peanut butter the leafs 6 round pick likes.
TSN 1050 Toronto is so boring I want to shoot myself. same with the fan
I dont care about the Raptors, Jays, Leafs or any MLS teams. TSN 1050 must have shitty ratings thinking they will pickup some more points Hamilton way.
I am and Argo fan and work in TO but also like the Ti-Cats. I want to only hear about the CFL and those 2 teams plus U sports. Now if I listen when I drive into work I only hear these dead people from TSN 1050. I am done with them. Music anyone.
You are in the minority unfortunately for you. There isn’t enough main stream interest in Canadian U sports and CFL to support an all sports radio station. Maybe McMaster and U of T have radio stations that are accessible for your U sports interest?
I think it’s pretty evident from all the cuts TSN has made to its radio service (not just in Hamilton but in other markets as well, including Toronto) that sports talk radio has not been a big ratings or financial winner for Bell to this point.
Good to see similar views to mine. I love the CFL talk that TSN1150 had up until last week. I don’t mind Overdrive and First Up but honestly you can hear the station clearly in 90% of Hamilton. So I don’t agree with the duplication.
Does anyone know if Tatti and Louis B will continue with the station? And specifically if they will be part of the TiCats broadcasts?
It probably only makes sense to have CFL dedicated shows during the season and around important dates on the calendar like the draft. The new soccer and basketball leauges would provide content, and I think these new leauges need exposure on tsn to gain traction, much like the CFL needed tsn to get where they are today.
If tsn is serious about content, they should divorce rogers as co-owners of mlse, and as part of the settlement, tsn gets to own a Hamilton NHL team, with zero "territorial"rights paid to mlse.
there is always CFL news. A syndicated radio broadcast on Sirius Radio or any other station that wants to pick it up.
I was thinking 3downnation with Dunk and company to compliment his web site. On 900 CHML or other as an example but diving to or from work. I think it could work. If TSN 1050 can talk about the Leafs 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the CFL show can fill 2 hours a day for 5 days.
Im not saying they wouldn’t pay an expansion or relocation fee, but an indemnification payment only is required to toronto and buffalo… and even that’s on shaky legal ground. But since bell is currently co- owner of mlse, they’d be paying themselves.
