Toronto Sports Media Sports Radio Lineups

by Rob Gregg

Shocking development – the NHL rejected the NHLPA’s counter proposal (3 seperate proposals actually) today. A disappointed Bettman flew back to New York with no future talks in sight. Here’s your drive home lineups:

On Sportsnet 590 The FAN from 4-7pm, Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown. Damien Cox co-hosts from 5pm:

400 – Tim & Sid, Sportsnet 590 The FAN
420 – Rob Becker, legal analyst
500 – Open segment with McCown & Cox
520 – Neil Smith, former NY Rangers GM
540 – Bob Elliott, Toronto Sun
600 – Bob Ryan, Boston Globe
620 – Bill Polian, former Bills and Colts GM
640 – Paul Johnston, PGA Tour Senior VP of Strategic Development

On TSN Radio 1050 from 4-7pm, Cybulski & Co., with James Cybulski. Bob Mackowycz co-hosts:

TBD

On TSN (5pm) & TSN2 (6:30pm), Off the Record with Michael Landsberg:

Anthony Calvillo, Montreal Alouettes QB
Bob McKenzie, TSN NHL Insider
Jevon Kearse, Retired NFL Defensive End

Today on Sportsline:

Are the NBA being draconian by limiting player pregame rituals to just 90 seconds? Is the Serbian government being serious about punishing those that tainted the end of Tuesdays Under-21 match against England? Will the NY Yankees trade Alex Rodriguez to the Marlins and will Russell Wilson lead the Seahawks to an upset over the 49’ers? Join Hebsy & Bubbs for ‘NO NHL LOCKOUT TALK’ on CHCH, at 5

Here is what Scott MacArthur said on 1050 about the NHL lockout:
“These two sides are literally on different planets”
Does anyone know what the word “literally” means anymore ????

McCown’s interviews
with Smith and Ryan were just brutal. After 35 years in the business, he still
doesn’t know you have to indentify the person you’re speaking to – its radio for
chrissakes!

And yet he and some
posters here claim he’s a great interviewer.

you raise a really good question: what makes for a great sports interview on the radio?

there are a range of styles on TSN and SN right now. maybe this could be a weekend blog, as well as a poll question.

Agreed…………..he is an interesting guy to have on every week but if they can’t make sure he is on a decent phone line I’m not sure it is worth having him as a guest

Believe these problems to be related to the Skype line they’re trying out. The question should be, are the cost savings worth the blips in service.

He’s barely intelligible at the best of times.

I hear him weekly on The Tony Kornheiser Show, and every week it sounds like he has pulled over inside a tunnel and is getting one bar of signal.

I’ve noticed that when he talks with his friends (or people he is friendly with), he sometimes neglects to mention who they are, and very rarely will bring it up again during their conversation.
