Right on the heels of Roger Ashby's announcement that his last day at CHUM would be December 5th, Rick Hodge has announced his last broadcast at 105.7 EZ Rock will be this Friday, November 2. That's right, he's retiring from 105.7 EZ ROCK’s morning show following six years with the station and 45 years on the air, and it's happening in two days.
I have a lot of time for Rick Hodge. Following an eternity doing mornings on 104.5 CHUM-FM with Roger Ashby and Marilyn Denis, Rick left CHUM to become a part of 97.3 EZ Rock's Toronto morning team. I once sat in on a show and great controversy ensued.
Here's an interview I conducted with him in which he reveals the truth about why he left CHUM-FM and here's our deep dive when he visited for episode 116 of Toronto Mike'd.
Rick's a gem. Congrats Rick, and let me know when you're ready to come back and kick out the jams with me.
