TSN and the CFL have today announced that TSN Radio will be the national radio broadcaster of the historic and highly-anticipated 100th GREY CUP on November 25.  Complementing TSN's television broadcast of the 100th GREY CUP, TSN Radio's live coverage of the CFL's championship game will also be heard on TEAM Radio stations across the country. 

With this exclusive radio broadcast agreement, Canada's Sports Leader will now deliver national live coverage of the 100th GREY CUP across four different platforms – television, mobile, radio, and online – for the first time in CFL history. 

Fans can tune in to the 100th GREY CUP on TSN, TSN Mobile TV, TSN.ca, and on the following radio stations: TSN Radio 1050 Toronto, TSN Radio 690 Montreal, TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg, TEAM 1410 in Vancouver, and TEAM 1200 in Ottawa.

Along with the 100th GREY CUP, TSN Radio and TEAM Radio stations will also bring fans live coverage of the CFL's Eastern and Western Finals in regions outside of the territory of the teams competing in the games.  The Eastern and Western Final match-ups take place on November 18.

Calling the action for the 100th GREY CUP on all TSN Radio and TEAM Radio stations are play-by-play commentator Rod Black and game analyst and two-time Grey Cup champion Duane Forde. 

French-language coverage of the CFL's Eastern and Western Finals and the 100th GREY CUP is available on RDS.

"Bringing fans national coverage of the 100th GREY CUP on more platforms than ever before has always been a goal for all of us at TSN, and we are extremely excited that our radio properties will now play an important role in covering this monumental game," said Stewart Johnston, President, TSN.  "By having the 100th GREY CUP and the Eastern and Western Finals on TSN Radio and TEAM Radio, we are guaranteeing that fans will be able to consume industry-leading live coverage of three of the biggest sporting events in Canadian history however they want – whether it's on television, on their mobile device, online, or on the radio."

"The 100th Grey Cup is a once-in-a-lifetime event for our country, an event that Canadians will not want to miss," said CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon.  "And through TSN's and our commitment to delivering live coverage of the event on several platforms, fans will be able to experience this truly historic event wherever they happen to be on Grey Cup Sunday."
