  • Print

Winnipeg is now home to a TSN Radio station. Sports Radio 1290 in Winnipeg will be re-branded as a TSN station beginning Wednesday.

TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg is the home of the Winnipeg Jets and will be available nationally online at TSN.ca and on TSN Mobile.  The TEAM 990 in Montreal is also becoming TSN Radio.

"Combining TSN' s resources and leadership with an already established local station will be a huge win for sports fans, " said TSN president Stewart Johnston in a release.

"In addition to local coverage, TSN Radio 1290 will utilize TSN s roster of broadcasters, experts and analysts including James Duthie, Bob McKenzie, Darren Dreger, Pierre LeBrun, Ray Ferraro, Marc Crawford, Pierre McGuire, Brian Williams, Chris Schultz, Matt Dunigan, Dave Naylor and Michael Landsberg.

The new station will focus on all major sporting news coming out of Manitoba, with an emphasis on the Jets, Goldeyes and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, officials said.

TSN Radio 1290 s weekday programming lineup is anchored by Hustler & Lawless, hosted by  Winnipeg Free Press columnist Gary Lawless and Andrew (Hustler) Paterson. The show airs Monday to Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m and is livestreamed on winnipegfreepress.com.

The station also features The Big Show each morning with Jay Richardson and former longtime Winnipeg Blue Bombers kicker Troy Westwood, as well as the magazine hockey show The Illegal Curve with Drew Mindell, Richard Pollock and Ezra Ginsburg.
