David Pratt Gets new CKNW show 7-9 pm Weekdays

16 posts in this topic

Peas in a pod those two.

Frankly, i'm getting tired of 1040. Nice to see some competition anyway, but at 7-9pm? I'll never hear em. Bottom line is that as long as Team has the Canucks, they have the market.

I like Pratt although I don't always agree with him..... Kinda pissed about the tweets he made about Sinclair, I would like them but I'm on my phone.

I'll give it a listen, but only if he has a podcast I can download. Then I can listen to it when I am at work the next day.

Great news for BC sports fans. Frankly TEAM 1040 sucks. I've said before that I've been listening to Dan Russell Sports Talk off and on for 25 + years now. He's the best sports talk show host in Vancouver. Proof ?, he's got the longest running sports talk show in Canada.

Taylor is good on TEAM and MOJ is pretty good too.

I kinda lost respect for Taylor when he and Pratt had Ron Maclean on the TEAM after the Auger incident. Maclean had embarrassed Burrows on HNIC. Taylor failed miserably that day after failing to ask Maclean even one decent question. Pratt actually drilled Maclean and gained a lot of respect.

Good for Pratt to get his own show.

What a joke. How does Pratt get this gig? He's awful and its pretty much a big FU middle finger to Dan Russell who's been a consumite professional for CKNW for all these years.

And a 2 hour radio show lol. This is going to fail so hard.

Canada's best sports broadcaster has his own show and is essentially being groomed to be Russell's replacement when the old dinosaur finally retires (he's about 10 years late), it's a beautiful thing!

Nothing wrong with competition, I prefer CKNW at night over 1040 anyway.

At 1040, I like Taylor, BMAC and Sekeres. Sekeres is probably the only guy at the station who has knowledge beyond just hockey, the guy can talk ALL SPORTS (BMAC isn't bad).

I guess I differ from the rest, I don't need guys like Pratt to sensationalize crap and pump me up. I just want to hear sports talk. I'll probably listen quite often and just turn off when the right-wing politics become too much to listen to.

I guess this means there isn't going to be a Sportsnet Radio Vancouver? Though it probably died when Bell Media re-upped the Canucks broadcast contract.

So far I really like Daves new gig. He has segments likes WTF moment and 3 burning questions and of course Pratts Rant. He is better than listening to the Moj on the Team1040 at the same time slot.

Glad to hear hes got a show again. Too bad its in the evening and I will miss it all the time.

Frankly, the afternoon show on Team with BMAC and Taylor has become unlistenable. Just garbage. And MOJ is painful.

Such a shame the only show which i like on TEAM is the morning show.

I used to be a regular team 1040 listener but without hockey and without Pratt I can't remember the last time I listened. The station's success was built around Pratt and Taylor's afternoon show.
