TSN 1040 (CKST-AM) Vancouver has unveiled a new weekday lineup, roughly 24 hours after cutting a handful of longtime staff.
Bell Media says starting Monday, Apr. 1, Halford & Brough, featuring co-hosts Mike Halford and Jason Brough, will move from mid-mornings into the 6 – 10 a.m. PT timeslot.
Donnie & The Moj, featuring veteran co-hosts Don Taylor and Bob “The Moj” Marjanovich, will air from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. PT. Matt Sekeres and Blake Price will continue to co-host weekday drive, but the show will be bumped up an hour, airing between 2 and 6 p.m. PT.
On Wednesday, morning show host Dave Pratt, who’d been with the station since 2013; rotating co-host and colour commentator Dave Tomlinson, who had been with TSN for 15 years, and producer Curt Appleby, were caught up in layoffs at the network.
The cuts also included several veteran personalities at TSN 1200 (CFGO-AM) Ottawa – morning co-host Steve Warne, who had been with the station for 19 years; producer James Abson, a 20-year employee; and morning Sportscentre anchor Dean Roberts, who’d been with TSN and sister station 580 CFRA, since 1996.
“As the fan-favourite voice of Vancouver sports, we’re thrilled to announce this new weekday lineup on TSN 1040,” said Trevor Martins, program director, TSN 1040 Vancouver, in a press release. “This packed roster will continue to engage and entertain Vancouver listeners with the stories that matter to sports fans across the city.”
