MONTREAL – For the first time ever, all major Montreal sports teams are on one station, as TSN Radio 690 in Montreal today announced a new multi-year broadcast rights agreement with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL). The Alouettes’ live game broadcasts move from sister station CJAD 800 to Montreal’s English-language all-sports station TSN 690, which will provide exclusive broadcast coverage of all Alouettes pre-season, regular season, and playoff games for at least the next three seasons.
Montrealers can set their dial to AM 690, listen online at TSN.ca/Montreal, and tune in with the TSN GO for live game broadcasts. The broadcast team is led by TSN 690 play-by-play commentator Rick Moffat, who is joined by analyst and former Alouettes offensive lineman Dave Mudge.
Radio coverage of the Alouettes on TSN 690 complements TSN’s extensive coverage of the CFL as the league’s official broadcaster. CFL ON TSN’s acclaimed team of football experts deliver breaking news and in-depth analysis on the league throughout the season.
“The Montreal Alouettes are thrilled to partner with TSN Radio 690.

Mark Weightman. “Furthermore, Alouettes fans will also continue to enjoy the great work of Rick Moffat and Dave Mudge on game days.”
TSN 690 also delivers extensive coverage of the Alouettes with THE ALS THIS WEEK, a weekly show hosted by Sean Campbell and Mitch Gallo airing Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m. ET. The show features news reports, player profiles, and regular interviews with Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp throughout the season.
The station’s expanded coverage of the Alouettes also includes live broadcasts and news reports from the team’s training camp, the home opener, the CFL Canadian Draft, and the 2014 CFL Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, which takes place in Montreal.
