I go back to the mid-80s to begin my Montreal sports radio recollections. Back then there were no sports radio stations in Montreal, or anywhere else for that matter. WFAN in New York became the first of many in 1987.
Back in the "day" Tevan's show was incredibly popular in Montreal, particularly during the 1970s and the early part of the 80s. If I recall correctly, his show was even syndicated for a little while. The show did disappear by the end of the decade, and Tevan headed for Ontario for several years. I think he ended up on a station in Windsor...
Interesting tidbit about Ted Tevan is that he was the person who originally put together the Expos' french radio network in 1968. He must have been a pretty good salesman, but I guess things were quite a bit different back then. He would always talk about that accomplishment with great pride.
Mr. Tevan did return to town in the 1990s and did some radio in Montreal up until the 00s. Last I heard he had had some health problems. I hope he's ok. He truly is one of the few remaining Montreal radio legends.
