"Nothing brings Canadians together like the Grey Cup, and our radio coverage on Corus stations as well as Radio Canada, will help us bring the Grey Cup to Canadians."

Corus will deliver all the excitement of the Grey Cup on Sunday, November 28th on English-language stations with a weekly listening audience of more than two million.

"Corus Radio has been committed to broadcasting and supporting the Canadian Football League for decades and we are thrilled that this relationship will continue on Sunday as we present the 98th Grey Cup across our network of News/Talk stations and our expanded network of Grey Cup affiliates," said Doug Rutherford Vice President and General Manager, Corus Radio Alberta. "It's the biggest day of the year for Canadian football fans and our stable of veteran broadcasters looks forward to the opportunity to describe the action to CFL fans across the country."

Fans across Canada can also listen to the game on SIRIUS Satellite Radio Hardcore Sports Radio (Channel 98) and Sports Express (Channel 97).

The best part of the radio broadcast? You don't have to listen to Glen Suitor!

Sorry, but that's unkind and untrue. Glen is a fine commentator with knowledge, restraint. He's a pro. Get over yourself.
