- Peter Maher was the radio voice of the NHL's Calgary Flames from their move to Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1980 until his retirement following the 2013-14 NHL season. He broadcast every Flames game for 33 years straight. He announced Flames games on the city's all-sports radio station, Sportsnet 960 The Fan. He was best known for bellowing "Yeah Baby!" after a significant or important moment, and "You can put it in the win column!" after every Flames win.
- Mike Rogers was the colour commentator for the Calgary Flames on Calgary radio stations for 12 years before announcing his retirement on July 25, 2013.
In 1981, the CFAC-TV moved to its new home, the Calgary Television Centre, a move reflecting its growth since its disaffiliation from the CBC. After obtaining the television rights to the (then-newly relocated) Calgary Flames National Hockey League franchise the year before, the station purchased a seven-camera mobile unit soon after. The station has been the Flames' television partner since 1980.
The Sportsnet One license is also used for a series of part-time multiplex channels which carry regional National Hockey League coverage, for selected Vancouver Canucks, Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames games. The channels themselves are only carried within the respective teams' territories.

In addition to his Hockey Night in Canada role (which remains on CBC as part of a four year sub-licensing deal), he along with Rick Ball became the new announcers for the Calgary Flames regional broadcasts.
- On November 26, 2013, after Rogers Communications secured a $5.2 billion deal with the National Hockey League for 12 years, Cassie Campbell then joined Sportsnet's broadcast team, in addition to her Hockey Night in Canada role.
