Alan Cross Fired from Edge 102


This one comes as no surprise.  Alan Cross is no longer employed by Corus Radio.  Alan Cross is best known for his long-running weekly rock documentary series The Ongoing History of New Music on 102.1 The Edge.

Alan Cross was there a very long time, starting at CFNY in 1986.  It's highly likely he'll continue to create content for Corus, although in a freelance capacity.

Back when Alan Cross was program directory at 102.1, we exchanged several emails that I posted here.  Edge 102 avoided Eminem like the plague, and then suddenly played him ad nausea.  Here's what Alan Cross said about that.  Then, there's that time Good Charlotte headlined Edgefest.  That was fun.

Alan's last day was June 30.  It's the end of an era, folks, but it's no surprise.  Maybe he should apply for this gig.

Fun fact: Alan Cross is married to former CFNY news gal Mary Ellen Beninger!
