NWB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Steve Lee weighs in on the Canucks and TSN1040’s current radio play-by-play staff. Gone is Rick Ball and for all but 28 games so to is John Shorthouse. With Ball now calling games for the Flames and Shorthouse only coming out for Rogers Sportsnet national broadcasts, the Canucks and TSN1040 have turned the mic over to Mr. Jon Abbott.
NWSB Insider and Northwest sports blogger Steve Lee tells us another story in our Moments in time series about the B.C. Lions duo in the booth, Rick Ball, and Giulio Caravatta. With ties to the area for both men, it is only fitting that they ended up working for the hometown football team. Caravatta actually spent some time with the Lions under the dome, while Ball got his start with the WHL and TEAM 1040 am in Vancouver.
