Amanda Cupido Out, Mike Bendixen In at AM 640

When Amanda Cupido was named Director of Talk and Talent at AM 640, she came on Toronto Mike'd to tell me all about it. Here's episode 1006 of Toronto Mike'd.

Today I learned that Corus has fired Amanda Cupido and handed the 640 reins to former CFRB Program Director Mike Bendixen. Mike Bendixen was fired from his gig at Newstalk 1010 back in December 2021 amidst the Ryan Doyle mystery.

Director of Talk and Talent, by the way, is a fancy schmancy way of saying "Program Director", and in addition to that ttle Bendixen has been named National Director of Talk Radio at Corus Entertainment.

In better times for Amanda Cupido and AM 640, I crashed their big bash at the GLB Brewpub this past April. Guests included Anthony Farnell, Alan Carter, Jason Chapman, Corey Manuel, Dan Speerin, Pina Crispo, Patrick Malkin, Kelly Cutrara, Rob Johnston, Edward Keenan, Vince Tedesco, Dani Stover, Greg Brady, Rachel Brady, Alex Pierson, and Dave Bradley.
