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.
