    Does anybody know what year CBC Radio stopped broadcasting hockey on their English radio service. I know the french wing had the habs until the late 90s but I wasn't sure about the english service.

    Anybody know? :dunno:

    The CBC radio mandate is to broadcast the most boring programming possible with the most montone djs in the country. NHL hockey does not fit into that mould so, it had to be scrapped.

    I was really more interested in finding out when it was scrapped rather than why.

    Colin, I think it was the early 70's, but I'm not positive.
