We’re excited today to be joined by TSN 1200’s Program Director and host of TSN Mornings John Rodenburg. JR has been on the show once before but it was during The Zoom Era and it’s great to have him make his TCA Studio debut!
If you enjoy the podcasts we’re putting out for you, we’d love it if you’d take a second to leave us a rating and a review there inside your podcast app. It only takes a moment and makes a huge difference for us.
We’ve got tons to get to with JR on this one including how he dodged the recent Ottawa blackout, whether or not he’ll be taking in much of Bluesfest and some of his favourite concert experiences, the ups and downs of being a Tragically Hip fan, the Boston Bruins firing their coach and whether they’re on the road to a rebuild, DJ Smith being under pressure in Ottawa to get his team off to a much better start than in previous years, thoughts on the Stanley Cup Playoffs thus far, TSN 1200 sending their radio play by play team back out on the road this season while many teams did not, the relationship between Eugene Melnyk and the local sports media, TSN 1200’s decision to not cover the Ian Mendes piece in The Athletic following Melnyk’s passing, what the Sens need to get done this off-season if they have any chance of making of the playoffs next year, what a Josh Norris extension is likely to look like and plenty more.
Always a pleasure to speak to JR and we were grateful he made the time for us today. You can catch him every morning on TSN1200 from 6am-10am and he’s on Twitter @TSNJR.
You can follow our show on social media @TallCanAudio.
