Important news fell on December 31st. Montreal Impact ended its relationship with Kozeko and 98.5 Sports, meaning that the games would no longer be broadcast on this radio station.
98.5 tweeted the news on the afternoon of December 31st stating that an email had been sent to them.

Soccer has been on display in Coke for a long time. Hence it is surprisingly important news.
Impact therefore loses its visibility at a common station across the province.
I was told the rights would go to 91.9 sports. However, that may be a problem since the 91.9 sports antenna is made for the Montreal area only. A Toys, Quebec City or Farm Lock-Saint-Jean people now need to connect via their computer or their phone to listen to games.
One may wonder who will be assigned to description and analysis. Will Oliver Brett (host of FC 919) and Rafael Dawset be lucky?
After all, this is a big blow to the team and the resort, which already covers a lot of impact. This ensures that it prioritizes impact and that the Internet is not congested for Canadians games for example. Hate hates being second to none.
Obviously, this means feeling collateral damage. Jeremy Philosa, who announced that big news would come this afternoon, will therefore be in more general work for 98.5 FMs, but will no longer be exclusively on behalf of 98.5 Sports.
We can still see him covering press conferences or impact-related events.

We can understand that Kozeko no longer has a place for it in the sports world. The Staff With hockey sold out and no rights to soccer games, the station probably would not like to have a regular reporter on file like before.
We may also wonder what effect this will have on IMFC radio. Does he want to stop talking about soccer? After the departure of Arcadio Marquez a few months ago, do Gavino di Falco and Jean-Franకోois dos Santos want to continue together?
