In the 1970s, Jacques Morey was a prominent figure in the media landscape and specifically in the hockey scene in Quebec. On the radio of CJMS-Radiomutuel and also almost daily on the screen of Télé-Métropole (TVA). He was just 27 years old, reliable and serious, no one was surprised to choose him as part of the team that broadcast the games of the century series on radio.
Radio-Canada holds the television rights, while Radio Mutual won those for radio. Jacques Descriptor, Rhéaume Brisebois, commentator, and analyst is none other than Jean Béliveau, retired from the game for 15 months. The whole team.
A relentless perfectionist, Morey made it his religious duty to question the performers to correctly pronounce each of the Soviets’ names in his deep and powerful voice. After 4 matches in Canada, coming to Moscow in mid-September was amazing, exciting.
“Between the airport and the center of the capital city, there are many military monuments everywhere that describe the bravery of the soldiers as well as the Soviets. In public places, women usually perform tasks assigned to men. Many men gave up their lives or their health in wars, distant or recent conflicts,” said Morey, recalling all the moments.
