TORONTO - SportsCentre anchor Blake Price is returning home to his native Vancouver and will work for both MOJO SportsRadio and TSN while in British Columbia.
Price will anchor the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily talk show on the Corus Entertainment-owned all-sports radio station and will also file reports for CTV's TSN from the Vancouver area. Price will occasionally return to Toronto to co-anchor SportsCentre, too.
Price and his family are returning to Vancouver for personal reasons, says the press release. Price's last regular SportsCentre broadcast will be August 27. He begins hosting the MOJO SportsRadio mid-day show on September 1.
Price's replacement on SportsCentre will be named later this summer.
"Blake is an outstanding sports broadcaster with a great sense of humour and tremendous charisma. At MOJO, Blake will add to the rich sports radio tradition in Vancouver," said Mark Milliere, TSN executive producer of news and NHL.
"We are very excited to have Blake join MOJO SportsRadio in September. He is an accomplished sports broadcaster who is very familiar to Vancouver and will add a tremendous amount to our lineup," added Tom Plasteras, program director of MOJO SportsRadio.
Price's presence on MOJO and TSN at the same time is not without precedent. TSN personalities have, for example, hosted programs on MOJO Toronto as well as The FAN.
Price joined TSN in July 2001 as the co-host of the 2 a.m. ET edition of SportsCentre. He began co-hosting the popular 10 p.m. SportsCentre show alongside Darren Dutchyshen in October 2002.
Price is a graduate of the University of British Columbia and the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and was named the 'Performer of Tomorrow' in 2000 by the British Columbia Association of Broadcasters.
