The Toronto Blue Jays are set to become the first MLB team in decades without a dedicated radio broadcast and fans aren’t happy about it.
Sportsnet Media released an announcement stating that games would be simulcast on the radio for the 2021 season.
This means that, while radio listeners will still get to hear the game, they’ll only be hearing an audio transmission of the television broadcast rather than a broadcast meant specifically for radio.
Traditionally, radio broadcasts have done a better job of painting a more scenic picture to listeners that don’t have the visual aid of television to help them out. Jays fans who enjoyed following games in the car or at work now feel as though they’ll be missing out on the full experience.
