TORONTO SPORTS MEDIA is reporting that THE SCORE SATELLITE RADIO, the sports radio station operated by Canadian cable TV sports network THE SCORE on SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO, will cease operations on SEPTEMBER 1st. The merger of the Canadian versions of SIRIUS and XM is being cited for the move, with the channel not making the cut for the merged operations north of the border (it is also heard in the U.S. on SIRIUS channel 158).
U.S.-based morning host BOMANI JONES told MEDIABISTRO's SPORTSNEWSER, "Well, it wasn't pleasant news. I was shocked. You don't expect this to happen. I got experience with this. It's kind of shocking, but at the same time, I'm going to try to figure out what to do next."
