With the addition of Lawless, TSN expands its presence in the key Winnipeg market, which already includes TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg, comprehensive coverage of the Winnipeg Jets and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and news coverage from Winnipeg Bureau Reporter Sara Orlesky. “TSN is the standard in sports media in Canada. Its roster of on- and off-air people is both all-star and Hall of Fame calibre,” said Gary Lawless. “The opportunity to join this team and take on new roles is invigorating. HUSTLER AND LAWLESS has taken a strong position in the Winnipeg sports scene and the chance to continue growing it while being a part of TSN’s TV and digital reach is a great next challenge. I have great affection for the Free Press and the people I’ve worked with there and am grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow while writing and reporting there for almost 20 years.” “Gary is the definitive voice of Winnipeg sports, and we are thrilled to have him with us on TSN 1290 and all TSN platforms full-time,” said Chris Brooke, Program Director, TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg. “The expansion of HUSTLER AND LAWLESS and his new contributions to TSN’s digital platforms are a huge win for Winnipeg sports fans.” Lawless joined the Winnipeg Free Press in 1999, covering pro hockey, baseball, and football before becoming the newspaper’s lead sports columnist.
