[edit] Overview

Sportsnet Radio is a sports talk radio network in Canada carried on AM radio stations, owned by Rogers Radio. It was started in January 2011, after Rogers intended to increase synergy between its television and radio imprints. This was upon rumours that TSN was going to be launching its own radio station [1]
