  1. Somewhat surprised Rogers/Bell haven’t gotten their fingers out of each other asses and released their schedule yet.

  2. It’s my understanding that the Canadian Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium (aka Bell Canada/Rogers or simply CTV Olympics) will release its TV schedule tomorrow with announcing the rest of the sportscasters going to London for the other sports and fill up some others they plan to show. Interested to see whom they’ll for OMNI and ATN’s select events broadcast. That and what the finalized Olympic product for Rogers radio stations like the Fan 590 AM in Toronto and maybe with their Corus Quebec counterparts again.

    • Thanks for the update DS. Seems like a good day to do it with not much happening for sports. An off day in baseball and CFL.

      • Indeed it is a very quiet day for the major pro sports leagues, all due respect to the minor ones. The only one out there in the sports calendar. That’s why the ESPYs are on tonight…
