Dennis Beyak Bolts For Winnipeg? Ralph Gone Too?
Dennis Bayak is said to be bolting Toronto where he did some 50+ radio games on 640 Toronto for greener, okay maybe not greener pastures but for Winnipeg.

I’m told this will be both radio and tv for Beyak who probably saw the writing on the wall with 640′s contract for Leafs games coming up after this season. If 640 were going to be in bidding for leafs radio I can’t imagine Beyak bolts.

So, the Marlies and the Maple Leafs are in the market for radio voices.

I am also told this could be the end of Jim Ralph on Leafs games too. After losing his gig as the co-host for the now extinct Bill Watters Show, it seems like Ralphs days are also numbered.

I liked Dennis & Jim.

Team 990 picks John Bartlett as voice of the Canadiens

For those who weren't familiar, Bartlett mainly did the Marlies games and some stuff for LeafsTV

You're right:
Apparently Beyak is a Manitoba native, so there's probably some additional pull in it for him. I liked them both also.

I don't know why but I always loved the commentary from Jim Ralph. Great radio voice.

Stronger Than All:
Bayek and Ralph are great.  If this is something they consider a better option for them then I'd be happy for them.

Sucks that Beyak is leaving, but at least he is coming to Winnipeg, I've worked with a Beyak in the past and will see him next month at the training centre, I wonder if the two are related haha

--- Quote from: ---Brian Munz is leaving CJOB to become the part-time radio voice of the Winnipeg Jets.

Munz, who spent the last five seasons calling Manitoba Moose games for CJOB, will apparently share the play-by-play duties with Winnipegosis native Dennis Beyak on Sports Radio 1290.

According to a source, Beyak will do the play-by-play on the TSN regional television broadcasts, while Munz will call the same contests on the radio. When the Jets are being shown on national television, Beyak will move into the radio play-by-play chair.

TSN won the regional television rights to carry Jets contests, and it mandated that Sports Radio 1290, which is also owned by Bell Media, get the radio deal.
