The Team 990 reached an agreement with the Montreal Canadiens to become the exclusive English radio home for the next seven seasons.
As part of the deal, the Team 990 will broadcast all 82 regular season games, playoff games and pre-season games. The station will also produce pre- and post-game shows. CJAD 800 was the previous English radio home of the Canadiens.
“It’s truly something special for everyone here at The Team 990 to become the new radio home of the Montreal Canadiens,” said Wayne Bews, general manager of The Team 990. “As a proud member of the Montreal community, the Habs have always dominated our airwaves. This new partnership with the Canadiens organization will enable us to give hockey fans even more coverage of our city’s team.”
The Team 990 and the Canadiens will announce its game play-by-play team later this summer.
