Underwhelming…These guys are totally reliant on Canucks broadcasting…Good luck with that Sportsnet!
Bring back CISL with music…You can actually make $$$ with that…

Could Be Game Over For CISL Oldies For Good

I’ll be really surprised if this lasts before a shake-up in the fist 3 months. The biggest news over all this sports radio hype is the loss of b-mac and how both afternoon shows on both competing stations will, for the lack of better words, just plain suck. Podcasts for the drive home

August 24, 2017 - 6:47 am


The afternoon shows will be fine, there is talent there. The morning shows are a wasteland.

SportsTalk radio in Vancouver:
A) Died the day Bro Jake was hired at Team/TSN1040.
B) Is NOT SportsTalk Radio. It’s Canuck’sTalk radio.
So if you want to hear about the Canuck’s options for a 3rd line center for 19 hours a day… go ahead, fill your boots.
Because THAT’S the side their bread is buttered on. And THE ONLY SIDE.
Their “core demographic snap shot” is 14 guys working at Surrey trucking company with the shop radio on.
And yes, Canuck’sTalk Radio- at both ends of the dial- can guarantee they’ll deliver that audience to an advertiser 19 hours a day.
Good for them.
While they continually finish 4th last the ratings.

I am wondering why they didn’t court Dan Russell to get back in the saddle. He’d be great for a 2 to 3 hour Canucks post game. Established talent with a strong following.

Will these sports radio stations never learn. Having more than two people in the broadcast booth does not work. Here we have a new sports radio outlet ignoring history by opening its program day with a three pack. Can these “sports” radio stations be that dumb?

August 27, 2017 - 10:07 pm


Dan Russell? ?
His “Best Before” date is long past.

Shocked to see the letters “CFL” strung together in a Rogers release. They have hired some good people – hopefully they will not have to tow the company line of ramming Blue Jays/Raptors/Leafs down our throats at expense of Lions, Whitecaps, Mariners, etc.

waitng for fan 650 to bring dan russell on board
night time talk sports need his voice back on the air

Let’s hope it is Dan only. Two people behind the Mike is one two many. Dan always opened the lines to get the opinion of his listeners. Why are the “Sports Stations” reluctant to get feedback from their listeners? Too afraid of criticism.
