The top rated Toronto station in Peterborough is FAN 590, which comes in after all of the local/Cobourg stations with a 1.2 share. Top Toronto FM is CFNY with a 0.7.

I can only imagine that they haven't been doing that great of a job getting the word out about Extra 90.5 then. It has some great sports programming, and Bubba the love sponge mornings (Who I have been listening to for more than 10 years)
Mind you Extra 90.5 is running at a smokin' 200 watts right now.

I like that she's putting on the brave face, but what does someone like her do after 40 years at the same station?
CHFI maybe?

Sue them?  For what, being bloodless dickheads?  She had a 40 year career, and they packaged her off, likely using the old 'We're going a different direction" bull-shit.  They don't want her, or her salary and benefits anymore, and are within their rights to legally toss her aside.  They'll all get the same crappy treatment one day.  End of an all-too-familiar story. 

Geez, you're a little angry eh? I'm well aware that they're bloodless dickheads. Do you know something we don't about her package? I'd be asking Lior Samfiru if it's adequate.

Are they serious?  I can just hear the conversation. "Um Ingrid, we love you here at Chum FM, but we have to let you go, because, well, you know those pesky U.S. commercials they run at the SuperBowl?, Yeah, the comapny will be losing money on SuperBowl Sunday, and won't be able to pay you anymore"

Had lunch w. a few up-and-comers in the industry yesterday, where one stated that "a distinctive voice isn't as important as it once was".   Later, I mentioned this to the missus, who responded "so why do you change the TV channel every time a Shelley Alexanian commercial is on?"      

"Too distinctive for my ears" I replied

I'm with you as well Geo. I can't take Shelley Alexanian's "distinctive" voice.

So suppressing freedom of speech and the constitutional freedom of the press/of the media to do it's job properly makes you "giddy"?  You along with the tiny handful in attendance who clapped when the 'king of the clap', donny trump, called CNN "fake-news" must all be goose-steppers.

This mother-fucker trump is totally dangerous...and he shows in an ever-so-constant-and-obvious way that he is way, WAY,  W  A  Y   under educated.  It's like 'winning' a 50/50 draw only to find that you, in fact, got all 100% of the road apples offered as the actual 'prize'.  You will be required to collect and carry them ALL individually ... by hand...during the dog days of this upcoming summer of 2017. 

He should be impeached by fall. Hopefully.  Otherwise?   He's pure poison and we're doomed.  Period.
 

Hmmmm...Sounds like..

A Buddy of mine was T-Boned last week, and He called them almost right away. I said to him, I wish you would have talked to me first. If you get an "award" it will be less than with other reputable law firms, simply because someone has to pay for those ads that are EVERYWHERE.

By the way, does it drive anyone else crazy that the colour scheme used to denote parties in the U.S. is the exact opposite of the Canadian system? Down south, the Democrats are depicted in blue on the map (here, that's long been the shade of the Conservatives) while the Republicans are shown in red (the traditional hue of the Liberals on this side of the border.)

Must be all the Canadian election coverage I worked on over the years, but I still find it very hard to get used to.

Yes, not only opposite from Canada but much of the world.  If you're Red then you're a commie pinko!
 

Something I noticed when I was last in the Excited Snakes. Honda Dealership signs are in Blue.
Here they are in Red.

What I have found most amusing is how the Sore Losers have blamed the Hillary loss on Racism, Homophobia, Bigots, and Islamophobia.
Yeah. Right.
