"We are thrilled to announce these changes to Toronto sports fans and add some entertaining new voices to TSN 1050. In the mornings, TSN 1050 will bring smart, informed debate from two of Canada's most respected broadcasters with Michael Landsberg and Dave Naylor at the helm. In the afternoons, we welcome a fresh voice to serve the LEAFS LUNCH crowd with an exciting new host in Andi Petrillo. And to everyone who asked for more Hayes, Noodles, and The O'Dog: we heard you, and you're welcome."
– Jeff MacDonald, Program Director, TSN 1050 Toronto
"Getting three hours of freedom to talk is really exciting. Naylor and I will do intelligent sports talk, but we'll have fun with it too. A couple things I promise: I will never back down and I will never let a foolish comment go unchallenged – even from Naylor."
– Michael Landsberg, Host, NAYLOR & LANDSBERG IN THE MORNING on TSN 1050 Toronto
"Michael and I will start off each day with some strong debate about the most pressing issues in sports. But we won't just talk about the obvious storylines out there. We'll dig deeper to find all kinds of stories that matter to Toronto sports fans."
– Dave Naylor, Host, NAYLOR & LANDSBERG IN THE MORNING on TSN 1050 Toronto
"I don't do quotes. Go ask Bryan."
– Jeff O'Neill, Host, OVERDRIVE WITH HAYES, NOODLES & THE O'DOG on TSN 1050 Toronto
"Noodles, O'Dog, and I are very excited to have even more time to do our show. The way I see it, the only thing that's changing is that we get to sleep in longer."
– Bryan Hayes, Host, OVERDRIVE WITH HAYES, NOODLES & THE O'DOG on TSN 1050 Toronto
"Me and the guys will do the same stuff at night that we did during the day. That means more Wrangler jokes, more 40/30 Grit Grinders, more Gerry's Percentages, and everything in between."
– Jamie McLennan, Host, OVERDRIVE WITH HAYES, NOODLES & THE O'DOG on TSN 1050 Toronto
"I'm really excited to join the TSN 1050 team as the new host of LEAFS LUNCH. The LEAFS LUNCH guys created such a fun format for the show, and I'm looking forward to carrying that forward while also putting my own spin on it."
– Andi Petrillo, Host, LEAFS LUNCH on TSN 1050 Toronto
