Expos radio from 1969-2000
Marlins 2001 - present

Left Montreal when Loria refused to put games on English radio

Only to wind up with Loria as his boss anyways in Florida

Ironically Jacques Doucet the Expos French radio announcer was also considered

The handling of the Expos situation was one of the biggest blunders in baseball history. The fact that a Major League Baseball team in the 21st century didn't have an English radio broadcast is simply astounding.
