It’s been an agonizing wait for fans of Dan Russell’s Sportstalk. It’s now official and the rumors turned out to be true. The new home? AM650 CISL. Here is the tweet from Dan himself.
Dear Sportstalk listener; Thanks very much for your patience. And yes we are VERY excited about moving our show to AM 650….!!!!!

An excellent article by Ian McIntyre from The Vancouver Sun is here. Learn more about Dan, the show, and the politics of Vancouver radio. As Dan says in the article, he may take a less repetitive “devil’s advocate” view on the Canucks. He isn’t selling out and will still stay true to what he believes. Perhaps more balance. I can say from my perspective I appreciate an alternate viewpoint on the Canucks but I don’t think it needs to be a mandate.
