Raptors Can we get a show?

I refuse to believe that media don't read this board and/or others like it. I also refuse to to believe that some of the Raptors employees do not check in.

Can we get a daily all access Raptors show going somewhere? Radio? TV? Somewhere where all can tune in at the same time every day?

I'm not talking about a "boxed" show where fans have no input.

Maybe there is and I just do not know of it. If someone knows, let me know.

But is the following that bad that there can be 8 zillion hockey shows and not one daily basketball show at all?

I'd actually be happier with a radio show because they don't have the limitaions in reach that TV does.

After most Raptors games i believe (maybe only home games) i believe eric and paul jones take calls for about an hour from listeners on the fan 590 right when the games over. It's called THE RAP...

They may not be willing to have these 3 or 4 man hockey host counters like I see on TV, but If I'm not mistaken, they have or had 2 radio hockey shows on in Toronto at the same time in the day time. No one anywhere can have a basketball show? Even at 10pm when they think all the decent human beings have gone to sleep and only the basketball freaks are left?

No, I totally agree with you.

But if there's going to be a show, there has to be someone to pay for it. Let's be honest, there's limited interest in Toronto for the Raptors. It would be hard to keep such a show on air.

Those are fine, but 1 is once a week and the other can be any time a game is over and may last 10 minutes or an hour...who knows?

Carve out a niche that everyone knows and has access to.

I actually thought that when they started a CFL show with hosts on TSN, it would not last, but they did a great job....very professional. No one is asking for that much money though.

Remember when in the Toronto, it was only the college and university radio stations that were playing the the indie bands, the hip hop, and other "fringe" music, all the stuff you now hear on mainstream radio? What kind of budget did they have to do that? Don't think I'm talking about some TV production with a 16 person staff each making 6 figures.

This is the city that has the NBA team. I'm not expecting some college station to start a Raptors show in Saskatchewan. Somebody's going to have to plant a flag and become entrenched in some small way. And that someone is going to be glad they did one day.

limited? i don't think so at all. We're 3rd in the NBA in local TV ratings, attendance is very respectable for a shitty team. IMO the Raptors have the second largest fanbase in the city out of all the sports teams. An extra 1hr show on the radio is not asking too much.

Make sure you go in for a physical too. This is not a job for the faint of heart.

By that reasoning, they should shut down this forum you're posting on.

BTW, take a look here and take a look at other Raptors forums. Take a look at RealGM Raptor forums (busiest out of 30 forums). Trust me, the interest is far from limited.

Sports coverage, something which is seen as being in the mainstream, does not really fit the mandate of campus or community stations. It's not what their license allows them to do outside of amateur sports.

There is a strong fanbase, but pretty weak general interest.

I disagree. For some reason, people think that if you don't sell out every game no matter how bad you are the general interest is low or that the fanbase is weak in this city. I find that the general interest in this team is pretty strong and isn't represented enough in the media.
