Hockey Night in Canada RADIO!

As part of our aim to make our office’s Trans-Canada lounge a site where students, staff, and visitors can come to access all forms of Canadian culture, we’ve had Sirius satellite radio running in our office for the last 16 months. Sirius broadcasts about six different Canadian stations, including CBC Radio One, CBC Radio3, two Radio-Canada stations, and two other stations dedicated to Canadian music.

So, you can imagine my delight today when I found out even more great Canadian content on the way!

The CBC announced the launching of HNIC Radio on Sirius Satellite Radio Friday, bringing back the show’s radio roots which started 74 years ago.

HNIC Radio will air Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET beginning Oct. 1 on channel 122, and will be available to Sirius listeners throughout North America. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

“This is a wonderful extension of the Hockey Night in Canada brand,” said Scott Moore, executive director of CBC Sports.

“Hockey Night in Canada is the most powerful sports brand in the country, and we are thrilled to partner with Sirius Satellite Radio to provide Canadians with more of what they love throughout the week.”

Seasoned sports broadcaster Jeff Marek joins HNIC Radio as host, and will work alongside rotating co-hosts Kelly Hrudey, Elliotte Friedman and Scott Morrison.

The show will feature insight and analysis, keeping fans updated on all the breaking news and issues from the world of hockey.

HNIC analysts Craig Simpson and Greg Millen will also be regular contributors on the program, while Ron MacLean, Don Cherry, Jim Hughson and Bob Cole will appear throughout the season.
