Voice of the Canucks

Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Canucks and CHUM Radio are pleased to announce that, beginning next season, TEAM 1040 will become the exclusive radio carrier of Canucks games. For the next six years, TEAM 1040 will be known as the official radio station of the Vancouver Canucks and General Motors Place, and will carry every Canucks game. In addition, CHUM Radio has committed to arranging for the radio broadcast of the games throughout British Columbia.

“Our fans will be well served by TEAM 1040’s all sports format which provides the means to bring our game day activities to our fans. We look forward to TEAM 1040 providing the very best experience in radio and continuing CKNW’s tradition of delivering a consistently high-calibre broadcast,” said Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Dave Nonis. “In addition to the game broadcasts, we have negotiated an increased Canuck presence on TEAM 1040 by licensing a weekly show that will run through each season of the agreement. CHUM Radio has also brought to the Canucks a major commitment to support the team’s community and charitable initiatives.”
