This is one of the rumors making the rounds these days. Dan Russell and Sportalk on CISL 650. Dan has said via his Twitter account that he won’t announce where his show is moving until this week is completed at CKNW 980. So to say that CISL AM650 is the new home for Sportstalk is […]

The future of Dan Russells’ SportsTalk nearing conclusion

This tweet from Dan Russell is interesting (@danrussellst) isn’t it? Getting more optimistic about future of Sportstalk by the hour. But nothing official yet. — Sportstalk (@DanRussellST) August 23, 2013 In my opinion, we are days away from some breaking news about where Dan is ending up. I can’t imagine it NOT being on local […]

Bro Jake and Dave Pratt Show on TEAM 1040 – 6am to 10am

Get ready for a new morning show that should shake up the local radio scene. I think CKNW should be a bit nervous about this one. I think this might be more of an entertainment show than strictly a sports show. I think that’s pretty clear. The new morning show starts on September 9. I’m […]

Dave Pratt back on TEAM 1040

Wow talk about a busy time in local Vancouver radio! Dave Pratt has resigned from CKNW, effective immediately. Where did he end up? Back on the TEAM 1040 in fact! With Dan Russel gone from CKNW 980 and Pratt gone, and you combine that with the “Sports” omitted from the newly designed CKNW logo and […]

CKNW fills 10pm time slot with Coast To Coast show

Never heard of the show “coast to coast”? You’re not alone. Instead of hearing sports on CKNW at 10pm, you’re going to be listening to George Noory and his topics about UFO’s, strange occurrences, life after death, and other unexplained (and often inexplicable) phenomena. This is a big change from listening to Canucks talk isn’t […]

The Shift with Mike Eckford on CKNW

Do you know who Mike Eckford is? How about Michael Eckford? If you’ve watched the popular Shaw community channel show “Urban Rush”, then certainly you know Mike Eckford. Well he’s coming to CKNW with a new show. With the news about Dan Russel’s Sportstalk not being renewed, there was a lot of questions about what’s […]

Did anyone notice the new CKNW logo?

We’ve already discussed the loss of Sportstalk on CKNW 980 and that the station is “moving in a different direction” in that time slot or perhaps all together. Is their new logo an indicator of the giant 98 and their lack of faith in sports? On the CKNW website, they still list Sports on their […]

Why the TEAM 1040 needs Dan Russell’s Sportstalk

At first glance, this might seem absurd. Heck, Dan might spit out his coffee at the thought of this. Dan Russell on the TEAM 1040? How so? Could it ever happen? I am suggesting it “should” happen, not that it “will” happen. If you’ve heard the audio clip on CKNW where David Pratt speaks about […]

Fix poor CKNW 980 reception with Telus Optik TV

As you may or may not be aware, the CKNW reception in downtown Vancouver is for lack of a better term, pathetic. The #1 radio station and the reception can be this bad? It’s something I as an end user and half a brain cannot quite understand. With that said there are a few options. […]
