102.1 the Edge Shuffles Show Deck

102.1 the Edge Shuffles Show DeckJust this past March, Fearless Fred switched from mornings on 102.1 the Edge back to afternoons and a new morning show of Dominik Diamond, Josie Dye and Greg Beharrell took over.

Now it seems Fearless Fred is back taking care of the morning shift with co-host Melani and Josie Dye has been moved to 2pm-6pm. Greg Beharrell has moved out west and Dominik Diamond is MIA.

For 25 years the 102.1 morning show was anchored by Humble and Fred and then Dean Blundell, but since Dean's dismissal, there's been a bit of back and forth. We'll see if Fearless Fred (who claims to really, really hate me) sticks this time. I wish him luck.

Alan Cross Returns to CFNY 102.1 the Edge

Alan Cross Returns to Toronto's 102.1 the EdgeAlan Cross is returning to 102.1 the Edge where he's spent the bulk of his radio career. You can hear him chat with me about his career in radio in episode 66 of my podcast.

We haven't been told yet what his role will be on 102.1, but we're promised details in the fall. Alan Cross was let go as Program Director of the station in 2008 and completely fired from the station in 2011.

I've been hearing his voice everywhere lately, as he narrates the videos at the Science of Rock exhibit at Ontario Science Centre and he voiced the Bob McCown propaganda film that aired last night on Sportsnet.

His return to CFNY follows the return of Scot Turner and his Spirit of Radio Sundays and a re-embracing of 102.1's musical roots. This is a good thing.
