CKAC Sports proudly supports junior amateurs by becoming the official francophone broadcaster for the Montreal Junior Hockey Club



    MONTREAL, Aug. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - CKAC Sports and the Montreal Junior
Hockey Club have come to a one-year agreement (2008-2009 season) making CKAC
Sports the official Montreal Junior broadcaster so that junior hockey fans can
now track their favourite teams.
    During the regular season, CKAC Sports will broadcast 17 home games and
13 road games on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
    "We're really happy about our new partnership with CKAC Sports," said
Montreal Junior president Martin Routhier. "The agreement will allow fans to
keep up with their teams on the radio, and it will also generate plenty of
talk about junior hockey."
    "We're glad to be among the first to get involved in the development of a
new junior hockey team in Montreal - and we're sure they'll be a great
success!" said CKAC Sports general manager Yves Bombardier. "We're really
proud to be supporting the community this way."
    Another Corus station, Saguenay's CKRS, also broadcasts Quebec major
junior league matches.
    Backed by corussports.com, the programming at CKAC Sports is totally
dedicated to professional and amateur sports and features the best sports
journalists and commentators in Quebec: Ron Fournier, Michel Villeneuve,
Jean-Charles Lajoie, Gabriel Grégoire, Michel Langevin, Jacques Demers, Pat
Burns, Michel Bergeron, Jacques Thériault, Pierre Trudel, and Jean
Chartrand... to name just a few.
