The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Wednesday that all regular season and preseason games will once again be carried live among four Canadian television networks and two radio stations.
On television, Leafs TV, Sportsnet Ontario, TSN, and CBC will carry the Leafs' action. CBC's Hockey Night In Canada begins its 60th season of Leafs’ broadcasts in 2012-13.
Every Leafs’ game will also be live on the radio – Sportsnet 590 The FAN and TSN Radio 1050 will divide the games on the radio for the first time.
There will be 12 regular season games carried exclusively on Leafs TV. The remaining regular season coverage breakdown is as follows: 26 games on Sportsnet Ontario, 19 games on TSN, 25 games on CBC. All four networks will also carry at least one preseason game.
To mark their milestone anniversary, CBC will air a special Thursday, November 1 game between Boston and Toronto, just as it did on Hockey Night In Canada in 1952. In addition, viewers can watch the 2013 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® on New Year’s Day on CBC in Canada and viewers south of the border can see the outdoor game on NBC.
Longtime play-by-play voice of the Leafs, Joe Bowen, will be behind the microphone for the 30th straight season. He will be joined on television by game analyst Greg Millen on midweek games on Leafs TV and Sportsnet Ontario. Bowen will be on the radio airwaves on Saturday evenings and during the week on nights when the Blue and White appear on TSN. Analyst Jim Ralph enters his 14th season in the Leafs’ radio booth for all preseason and regular season games. Dan Dunleavy returns in a radio play-by-play role for a second straight season.
