VANCOUVER (March 25, 2015) – TSN and the BC Lions Football Club announced this morning that they have signed a new three-year radio rights extension to broadcast Lions games on TSN Radio 1040 in Vancouver. TSN 1040, broadcast partner of the BC Lions since 2003, will continue its exclusive broadcast rights deal with the Lions through the 2017 season.

The connection to our fan base through radio remains a very important link, whether it’s listening to the pregame show, the play-by-play of the game, the postgame show or feedback, and Lions talk throughout the day during the season.
The reach across British Columbia on TSN’s numerous affiliates helps keep our loyal fans tuned-in for up-to-date information about our players, coaches, and the team. We’re also pleased to be associated with the talented and knowledgeable game-day broadcast team of Scott Rintoul, Giulio Caravatta, Bob “The Moj” Marjanovich, and Chris Burns, along with TSN’s other talented on-air personalities.”
