91.9 Sports officially becomes BPM Sports

91.9 Deportes today presents its new programming for the next radio season, which will begin on August 29.

There were a lot of questions to be answered after learning that some big tracks (LP Guy, Évelyne Audet, Stéphane Gonzalez and Raphaël Doucet, to name a few) weren’t coming back.

What do I take from all this?

First of all, as we learned a few months ago, the station will be part of a network in RNC. This replaces the stations currently known as “Vibe” in Quebec (100.9) and Gatineau (96.5) and obviously includes 91.9 in Montreal.

Such a French-language sports network on the radio is the first in North America.

Therefore, the name BPM Sports (which stands for Beats Per Minute) was chosen to rename the stations. In Montreal, therefore, we are talking about “BPM Sports 91.9” for all other things.

What this means is that the morning, noon, and return shows will be produced in Montreal, but will air at the same time in the Outaouais and the National Capital Region.

Between these shows, in Montreal, there will be other sports shows and in the regions, there will be music. The only exception? The evening’s show will take place from Quebec, but will air on the rest of the network. I will come back to that.

As for the schedule itself, the most notable news for DLC is undoubtedly the departure of our editor (and co-owner) Maxime Truman.

He agreed to become co-host of Georges Laraque on the program “Le Monde de Georges”, broadcast from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on weekdays. It’s obviously a challenge that excites him.

I thought long and hard before accepting this new challenge, which requires me to give up a bit of DLC during the upcoming radio season. It is a challenge that excites me.

Working with a guy like Georges Laraque is something you can’t refuse. At 40, she was ready for a new challenge. –Maxim Truman

Remember that fellow Truman is currently in his second week hosting “La Centrale du Sport” this summer, but this is a separate challenge from his fall tenure.

I would also like to thank his new bosses for the trust placed in him.

So I’m going to take on the responsibilities of editor-in-chief on the site for the next year and I’m going to write in the mornings from Monday to Friday. My colleague Marc-Olivier Cook will write in the afternoon. Max will still be around in moderation, whether it’s when he has a scoop or a story to share, for example.

I take the platform I have to thank Max, on behalf of all the DLC writers, for the trust he has placed in me and I wish him the best of luck in his next challenge.

As for the rest of the programming, we already knew that Jean-Charles Lajoie was going to make his big return to the station in the morning box. Now we know that from 6 am to 9 am, therefore, he will be in charge of “Jean-Charles Lajoie: First Storyteller”.

From 5:30 to 6:00, just before, Daphnée Malboeuf will present “L’Avant-match”, a morning sports press magazine.

Thus, it will set the table for an entire show as JiC will have many big-name collaborators on their show. We think in particular of Réjean Tremblay, Bob Hartley, CLaude Guillet, Tony Marinaro, Denis Coderre, Philippe Boucher, Jean-Michel Dufaux, Renaud Lavoie, Bizz and Eric Hoziel.

Therefore, the former mayor of Montreal will be a new contributor to the station. We know of his love for sports and this is one of his new challenges for the new year.

From 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Gilbert Delorme will be on the air through his program “La Game”. Ben Roger will be next to him.

From 13:30 to 15:30, Maxime Van Houtte will be at the helm of “L’Estrade”. Therefore, he leaves the afternoon slot to land in the afternoon for the next radio season.

The comeback will once again be led by Martin Lemay, but this time from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., we talk about the program “Le Retour des Sportifs” and Ben Roger will be on the air.

Several great collaborators will be back with him and we note that Martin Leclerc, who was in the morning in the past, will now be a regular collaborator on the comeback show.

Among his other collaborators, there are several regulars from last year. Mathias Brunet, Bob Hartley, Yvon Pedneault, François Gagnon, Martin Biron, Matthieu Proulx, Jason Pominville, Marc-André Dumont and Eric Engels will return.

At night, as I told you, the program will be recorded from Quebec. It’s Jordan Boivin, a fine young entertainer from Quebec, who will be in charge with “Tribune Capitale” from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on nights when there is no live sport.

And on weekends, Paul Houde will take charge, from 9 am to 12 noon, of the program “Les Weekends Sportifs de Paul Houde” with production by Katherine Huet and broadcast by Greg Lanctot.

This is a huge catch for the station as Mr. Houde is a radio monument.

Let us remember that the driver, who has 47 years of experience behind the tie, wanted to put on a microphone because he still has the passion, but also to reach 50 years of career behind a microphone.

The one who will also (during the week) be a collaborator of ICI Première was, in recent years, at 98.5. He has also been seen talking about sports on TVA Sports in the past.


On weekends, the specialized shows (a show, a sport) return after the Paul Houde show.

For those interested, my baseball show, Passion MLB, will now air on Sundays only at 1 pm Therefore, on Saturday, Passion MLB will not be on the air.
