Look Out Bob McCown, Gary Bettman's on your turf

Bob McCown, the host of Canada's most listened to (and perhaps watched as well) talk show on The Fan 590 and Rogers Sportsnet, may soon be hearing footsteps.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is set to host a talk show on XM Satellite Radio, the show debuts on November 27 and will be hosted by Bill Clement.

It will air on XM at 4 pm ET/1 pm PT on NHL Home Ice (XM Channel 204) and On December 6, "NHL Hour" will begin airing every Thursday at 4 pm ET/1 pm PT.

In addition to Bettman's appearances, other members of the upper reaches of the NHL offices will rotate through the roster of hosts, answering questions posed by listeners by phone and e mail.

Also up as our hostests with the mostest, will be Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly (who will no doubt offer his vast knowledge of labour related matters) and League Sheriff Colin Campbell (who most likely will explain why all NHL felons must pass through Philadelphia).

But make no mistake, Gary Bettman will be the star of the show. Taking us back to the days of Boss Jocks, but instead of rock this will be Boss Jock talk!

Perhaps he'll even have his own version of the top ten list, counting down the top ten letters he receives each week...
