“On the radio side, Dean Blundell joins Sportsnet 590 The FAN to co-host the new morning show, Dean Blundell & Co., alongside Andrew Walker. Dean Blundell & Co. debuts on March 2, and will air weekdays from 5:30 to 9 a.m. ET. Greg Brady, co-host of the current morning show Brady & Walker, will take over the 1 to 4 p.m. ET timeslot previously hosted by Tim & Sid, starting March 30.”
or…… maybe not.
Blundell is still taking over the morning show.
Andrew Walker joining him??????
Don’t bet on it.
Despite a press release announcing the moves, multiple sources are telling me that the Walker bit remains a mystery.
If you recall, the Blundell show was to begin rehearsal with Walker for a few weeks prior to the March 2nd launch. Walker, if you haven’t noticed is still on the morning show with Brady. The rehearsal has yet to begin.
There are multiple theories making the rounds as to why the sudden potential change but I await further developments until I hear more.
So where does Walker go??
The smart money is he goes along with Brady to the afternoon 1-4 slot.
Who is going to be with Blundell? Probably his old cronies. Maybe they add a sports voice.
Meanwhile, it seems that Sunday nights now belong entirely to Ron Maclean, at least on the hockey side.
Hometown Hockey it seems will be based entirely from the road with no more studio segments.
Why the change?
One thought is that the regular show needed more time to be developed, and the ratings (faulty and all) dictated changes needed to be made.
Meanwhile Ken Reid remains McCown’s sidekick inexplicably. The man adds absolutely no value to any interview.
Interesting times indeed.
