Things aren’t always going well in the sports world. After all, we know that cuts have been fashionable in recent years.
We know there’s often news to that effect on television (TVA Sports, in particular), but that’s not all. Recently, Marc-Antoine Godin and 19 of his colleagues lost their jobs at The Athletic.
And now, this morning, it’s the radio world’s turn.
What’s appalling is that at 9 a.m. local time in Edmonton, the station shut down. The host went on break and in the meantime, the radio station shut down.
It’s such a rat.
This isn’t the first time Bell has done this. In 2021, when radio station 1040 shut down, it was done in exactly the same way, without warning.
I…..I’m staring at my computer screen looking at this absolutely stunned. A lot of good people just lost shows and work in Edmonton sports media. pic.twitter.com/xXuAHfumcN

Cogego’s back is stronger, but who knows if sports will take up less space one day.
