VANCOUVER (January 17, 2018) – TSN 1040 Vancouver is back in the Lions’ Den as TSN today announced a multi-year extension of a partnership that will see TSN 1040 remain the official radio broadcaster of the BC Lions.

Calling all the action for the 2018 season is the TSN 1040’s Lions broadcast team including play-by-play commentator Bob ‘the Moj’ Marjanovich alongside analyst and former Lions quarterback Giulio Caravatta. Contributing insight and analysis on the Lions and the CFL throughout the season are CFL Insiders Farhan Lalji, Dave Naylor, and Glen Suitor.

“Today’s announcement is excellent news for our club and our fans,” said BC Lions President Rick LeLacheur. “Since coming together in 2003, we have established an incredible 15-year partnership with TSN 1040 which is of tremendous value to our organization, our supporters and our partners. Radio remains a vital link between the club and its fans, whether it’s listening to the pregame show, the play-by-play of the game, the postgame show, or Lions talk throughout the season.”
The season-long coverage is highlighted by in-depth analysis and exclusive interviews with players, coaches, and management.
