The Edmonton Elks have struck a new radio rights agreement with 630 CHED radio.
“The Elks are an integral part of the sports scene in Edmonton,” Corus Radio regional program director John Vos said in a statement. “With the Elks’ deep ties to the community, our continued broadcast partnership is a natural fit for 630 CHED.”
Veteran play-by-play announcer Morley Scott and analyst Dave Campbell will return for their twelfth season together calling Elks games.
“Hearing the Green and Gold on 630 CHED feels like home. Like thousands of loyal fans, I grew up listening to the legendary Bryan Hall, as he brought to life the moments that defined Edmonton gridiron greatness,” said Elks President and CEO Victor Cui.
“Morley Scott and Dave Campbell have built on 630 CHED’s tradition of excellence in the broadcast booth and are the perfect pair to bring our fans what promises to be an exciting 2022 season.”
Each broadcast will feature a 90-minute pre-game show and a 90-minute post-game show hosted by Brenden Escott, who will move upstairs after handling sideline reporting duties.
Scott and Campbell will broadcast every Elks preseason, regular season, and playoff game, beginning with preseason coverage on Friday, May 27 when the Elks travel to take on the defending Grey Cup champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Edmonton opens regular season action on Saturday, June 11 in Vancouver against the B.C. Lions. Their home opener is set for Saturday, June 18 against the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
