I have to say, I left TSN1290 long ago. This past year, I've barely listened. I liked Hustler but that morning show has been horrible for years.  But, to treat your staff that way? Embarrassing. 

This just sucks. I like that station. Also **** Bell. Got millions in Covid $ from the feds and now they're laying people off. Shitty company.

So, what does CJOB do now? They have the Jets and the Bombers, with the coaches show. How do they balance providing sports news without taking away from their regular news and talk shows? They don't want to alienate anyone but some will be looking for more sports content. Tough balancing act.

They've been doing it for years, so I don't suspect a lot will change. Keep in mind, this isn't the first time they've had the rights to all teams. They've got good, smart people in that building...hopefully Corus is smart and keeps them all happy.

They will add more commercials now that they have a captive audience.

As the only radio station carrying the Jets & Bombers they'll take it on & increase their sports content. I look for their sports department to grow by at least 2 people. More sportstalk in the evening, perhaps?

Oh my that will draw them in

 

That's....new at least to me it is, what will they broadcast? JFL's archives? Vinyl Cafe reruns? Air Farce radio archives? something totally and completely new (let's face it the content I named aren't possible because CBC has a tight hold on them)

It's not surprising since radio *should* be a dying business,  it still really sucks.   I can't imagine enough local interest in the guys going on their own and running a youtube, podcast, something else as a full time job.

Was the station losing money?

paying three morning, the noon guy, and two afternoon guys plus support.

 not enough people listening I guess.

just sports all day always seemed a bit boring to me.

With handing the Jet audiocast over to CJOB, it sure looks like this was planned for some time.

I would be curious to see the timeline on this. Did they bid and fail? Did they not bid at all?

so the Comedy thing....they've been doing this for awhile now. Did it in Calgary about 10 years ago....and other markets as well. It's extremely cheap for them because there's no announcers, basically. It's all pre-programmed stuff that is CHEEEEEEEEAP. It's a major $$$ saver for them.

TSN1290 was comedy, I'm sure, before they switched up to sports, bringing in the ESPN coverage.
