THE GLOBE AND MAIL's BRUCE DOWBIGGIN is reporting that CTV is going ahead with its plans to launch a national Sports talk network in CANADA based on its TSN cable channel later this year, after BCE INC. officially takes control of the company.
The paper reports that TSN RADIO will air on CTV/CHUM RADIO's CHUM-A/TORONTO (presently a simulcast of sister regional cable news channel CP24), and DOWBIGGIN reports that the new network has signed rival ROGERS Sports CFAC-A (SPORTSNET RADIO FAN 960)/CALGARY morning man MIKE RICHARDS to host mornings. RICHARDS did not host his show on the FAN on FRIDAY and CFAC's website no longer shows RICHARDS in its lineup.
