A tip of the hat to TSM for some solid sleuth work today. It seems Dean Blundell is returning to mornings on Toronto radio, becoming the new morning man at The Fan 590.
Greg Brady (hear him on episode 76 of my podcast) will move to 1-4pm as Tim and Sid leave radio for a television-only show.
It seems Andrew Walker (hear him on episode 87 of my podcast) will remain on the morning show, but it won't be called Blundell and Walker. Make no mistake about it, this is Dean Blundell's morning show. It will be called "Dean Blundell & Co."
Blundell's longtime morning show on Edge 102 ended a little over a year ago. It was well covered here. Check out these links for a recap:
- Jason Barr Fired from Dean Blundell Show
- Todd Shapiro Fired from Dean Blundell Show
- Todd Shapiro Discusses Dean Blundell vs. Humble and Fred
- Derek Welsman and Dean Blundell Show Disrespect Judicial Process
- Dean Blundell Show Suspended by 102.1 The Edge
Based on TSM's tip, I touched base from some people in the know, and it seems like this is happening. I expect it to be confirmed this afternoon.
What do you think of these changes? Will you listen to Dean Blundell on The Fan 590?
Update: All of the above has been confirmed.
