CRN: CISL 650 Will Be All Sports Come Fall
Net News 5  

ROGERS TO PURCHASE CISL 650 VANCOUVER – WILL BECOME SPORTSNET 650 THE FAN

No real surprise as Rogers needed a station to broadcast the recently acquired rights to the Vancouver Canuck games. They didn’t want to disturb the successful All News format on CKWX 1130 or go through the rigmarole involved with the CRTC by flipping CJAX 96.9 or CKKS 104.9 to a Spoken Word format. This also means that the last English language station still playing music on AM in the market will vanish. Word is SPORTSNET 650 THE FAN will make its debut on September 1st pending CRTC approval..

  1. I would like CISL 650 to stay on the air as smooth and easy as it is now.

  2. We have enough sports reporting. Now you take away a good music station. What crap

  3. Guess I will be looking for a new station to sing with. Too many sports stations and channels. Grrr!

  4. I totally agree that they shouldn’t take away a good music station. Lots of people enjoyed CISL 650

  5. I have loved the Oldies station for years now. All my favourite songs are gone now that you have done away with it. Please re-consider bringing it back? We have enough talk shows and sports stuff. I have looked for another station but, can’t find one as good as CISL oldies.
