POPULAR HABS' ALUMNUS JOINS CJAD 800 BROADCAST TEAM

September, 16th, 2010
 
(Montreal) - Montreal's News Talk Leader CJAD 800 is pleased to announce the signing of free agent Montreal-native Sergio Momesso to join the CJAD Broadcast Team for Montreal Canadiens Hockey in the 2010-2011 season. Momesso, a Montreal-native with 13-years experience in the National Hockey League, will debut as colour commentator and game analyst Wednesday September 22nd when the Canadiens return to CJAD 800 for the first time since their inspiring Stanley Cup Playoff run of April-May 2010.
Momesso will be heard on every Canadiens' pre-season and regular season game,  and he hopes through another extended playoff run this season. Sergio will also contribute daily to the Andrew Carter Morning Show (Weekdays 5:30-9:00AM) at 8:25AM and weekday afternoons on the Ric Peterson Show (Weekdays 4-7PM) at 6:25PM. "I'm looking forward to sharing my experiences on the ice and in the dressing room with Montreal Canadiens fans everywhere," says Sergio. "Many of my friends and former teammates in the hockey world are now coaching or scouting in the NHL so they'll help me bring more insights and the inside story on today's players as well."
 
Momesso made his NHL debut with the Habs at the age of 18. He wore #36 and scored 29 of his 152 career regular season goals in "bleu, blanc, rouge" while racking up more than 1500 penalty minutes. Momesso earned his only Stanley Cup ring as a member of the Canadiens in 1986, and went to the Stanley Cup Final as assistant-captain with the '94 Canucks.
 
In recent years Sergio has passed on his hockey knowledge as a coach in the Q-League, at Concordia University, and with the Hamilton Bulldogs, the Canadiens' AHL affiliate.  He remains a proud member of the Montreal Canadiens Alumni charity hockey team. CJAD 800 would like to again thank fellow Canadiens alumnus Murray Wilson for more than a decade of service to Canadiens fans the world over. Wilson announced his retirement from broadcasting at the close of the '09-10 regular season. Montreal's News Talk Leader CJAD 800 is also the proud home of the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Alouettes, and Rogers Cup Tennis.
