MOJO assistant Program Director Crosby McWilliam says "Talk radio for guys had its challenges and ultimately we decided that the upside wasn't worth the challenges we were facing so we decided to re-evaluate." ( On the demise of MOJO: Talk Radio for Guys).

"We have the Vancouver Canucks, the Edmonton Eskimos and Oilers, the Calgary Stampeders, and other teams all the way across the country," says McWilliam. ( On the launch of MOJO AM730).

"If we concentrate all the work that we're doing on these sports properties we have an opportunity to create a sports station that would be more successful because it has much more in the resource box."
