TSN 1290 Goes Off Air

Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – The city’s sports station is flipping formats to comedy.

TSN 1290 is owned by Bell Media which laid off over 200 people across the country just a week ago, including several high-profile broadcasters.

It’s not clear how many local jobs have been lost but several now unemployed hosts took to social media after the announcement.

The station recently lost its radio rights for the Winnipeg Jets to 680 CJOB.
