Sportsnet is expanding its radio coverage of the Vancouver Canucks this season, giving fans even more options to listen to live game broadcasts throughout the province.

|Haida Gwaii||92.9 FM|
|Prince Rupert||101.9 FM|
Just like when CKNW lost Canucks rights, CFAX will have to figure out an evening programming strategy. The lowest hanging fruit would be simulcasting Adler. Trouble with that is Chuck’s interminable plugs for NW content and staff plus emphasis on Vancouver topics. Does CFAX management want to encourage Victoria listeners to turn the dial to 980 when its daytime signal is strongest?
With the advent of internet radio networks like this are not a big thing.
My experience with SN stations is that they do not allow streaming of their nhl broadcasts. I will try some of the above listed stations and see if any of them slip thru the cracks.
This will at least guarantee Sportsnet execs that 24 people in BC are listening to these boring games….?
What a task trying to get excited about a team predicted to be in the basement for at least the next few years to come.
Mark, you probably, given your comment, don’t understand that having hockey gives the smaller markets “saleable” content.
Don’t be so darn negative!
BT nothing against small markets doing all they can do to make a go of it but they probably need to focus on their main strength which is being a part of their community. This isn’t just restricted to smaller markets but also larger markets. I hear too much US/International talk on radio talk shows that people can get on cable news 24/7.
Same goes for sports, not to mention the publicity the Canucks are getting is all pointed towards a dud of season. I hope they are wrong but they were right last season.
Personally so sick and tired of Haveing to hear about the Canucks who will be sucking wind for years to bone. Owership should get rid of Benning and Linden.
