But none of the CING hosts originate in Hamilton. Mornings from Toronto, midday is beamed in from Barrie I believe, afternoons from Toronto and evenings from Montreal.

Do they have local advertising? If so, wouldn't that be against the CRTC 1/3rd regulation?

Re: Z103.5

Technically the CRTC policy is based on the 126 hour week - based on the 18-hour day 6am to midnight.
That's just over 5-1/2 hours a day Monday-Sunday that "should" be local.  Some stations use a loophole of voice tracking, and claim that the VT is actually played back at the radio station, and thus qualifies as  "local" programming.  But is it????  It would be interesting to see what Rachel Marleau, head of radio at the CRTC thinks.

Afternoons I think comes from Hamilton... I could be mistaken, but from the pics posted by the host, it appears she is in the Hamilton studio.  

Mid-days being voicetracked and played from Hamilton, may be their saving grace... I also think there is a shift on the weekends done out of the Hamilton studios.   This could equal the required time to count.   It will be right at the limit though.

Re: Z103.5

It looks like the morning show will now be with mid-day announcer Sandra Crofford and… Rick Campanelli.

For those of you who don't remember, yes we are talking about Rick "the Temp" Campanelli circa MuchMusic (1994-2005) and who also subsequently worked as a co-host at ET Canada until 2017.

He also had brief exposure to radio back in 2016 as one of the co-hosts to CFNY's morning show alongside Fred and Mel.

Re: Z103.5

So after listening to their first show this morning, things went great.  We can clearly see that Rick is getting used in being back on the radio as his co-host Sandra (who was previously doing Middays) is leading all breaks rather than him but i suspect this will change over time once he gets the hang of it.

Overall a good choice for Z103.5 as there's lots of nostalgia for Rick "the Temp" back from his Much Music days which goes well with the core audience listening to the station who would have grown up watching him on TV.

As far as Tony Monaco, he has now taken over Middays by himself which Sandra Crofford was previously doing.

Re: Z103.5

I worked with Rick when he started as "the intern" at MuchMusic.   That was probably his first professional broadcast job.   He was genuine on and off the air.  A pleasure to work with.  I am always pleased when Rick takes on a new challenge.  A very talented guy.

It’s interesting because I remember Rick briefly going back to City in 2019, but never heard about his whereabouts or what happened after then.

Re: Z103.5

Tony Monico is 62. He may not have been at the same station for 50 years, but he's been in the business a while...maybe he can be the next Wally Crouter! (he has been with Z 103 for quite a while)
Congrats Mr. Monico!  Well earned!
