In February 2017, following the Dean Blundell disaster, Greg Brady returned to The Fan 590 morning show with Elliott Price and Hugh Burrill. Elliott Price was brand new to this market, having spent his entire career in Montreal.
Less than two years later, Elliott Price is no longer at The Fan. Here's the official announcement from the man with the longest job title I've ever seen, Dave Cadeau.
I would like to thank Elliott Price for his passion and dedication to Sportsnet 590 The Fan listeners over the past two years. An excellent broadcaster with an incredible sports acumen, Elliott delivered the news, interviews and insights that mattered most to Toronto sports fans every morning. This past Wednesday marked Elliott's final broadcast on Sportsnet's Starting Lineup, but we wish him all the best and thank him for all of his contributions to the station. Sportsnet 590 The FAN remains dedicated to delivering the engaging conversation and first-rate content our listeners have come to expect, and we look forward to exploring new approaches to sports talk in the morning. Greg Brady and Hugh Burrill will continue to anchor Sportsnet's Starting Lineup moving forward with further details about the show to be confirmed at a later date.
