Commentaire / Comment
Just heard the news today that Bell media will shut down TSN 990 sport radio station in Montreal. Unbelievable!

I am a longtime listener and supporter of this station.

TSN 990 is the only English sports radio station and is followed by both English and French listeners.

This move doesn't make sense for a station that seems to be successful. The outpouring of support for the radio station and protest against the closing of the station was widespread today online, on Twitter, Facebook and blogs.

TSN 990 radio has done a great job of building a solid lineup of on-air personalities and guests from every sport. This station is a sports fan's dream.

TSN 990 is the only radio station in Montreal (in any language) that covers ALL sports not just hockey. French stations tend to concentrate on hockey.

I ask that the CRTC /intervene/reconsider to ensure that this station continues to exist to serve Montrealers & Canadians both locally on radio and online.

Thank you.
