In my humble opinion, Bell should just end the agony and rebrand NT1010 to CTV Talk Radio Toronto or something like that akin to GNR640.  It appears that "news" is no longer in the mandate of the radio station.

This isn't about a prank but many years ago (back in the 70's or 80's), one of the radio stations in London had a contest featuring an all expenses paid weekend in Cleveland.  The second prize was two all expenses paid weekends in Cleveland.  As I recall, the radio station got an earful from Clevelanders who eventually heard about the contest.

Regarding Ken Jennings as host...I am in total agreement that he should be made permanent host.  I had some apprehensions before he started but he's been a natural following in Alex's footsteps making the show/contestants the centre of attention rather than himself.  I expect he will continue to improve.

Totally agree on making him main anchor.  He does a great job of reporting the news in an unbiased manner, in my opinion.

I have to say that the Ron's interview with Don Fehr (NHLPA executive director) was one of the best segments of the "Conversation".  Ron's knowledge of the strife for racial equality in the U.S. was evident and through that insight he was able to conduct a poignant conversation with Don Fehr (who is American).  I thought the comments Don made concerning the racial movement requiring generational timeframes to fix was noteworthy.
