There. I fixed it. It that okay? Or, did I permanently affect the precious and gentle uber seriousness of the average reader? https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/w00t.png

Not to go off topic but speaking of CHFI, as per their wikipedia they have low power re-broadcasters in odd places....  why?

I’m baffled that they’re still doing diaries and not PPM in that market.

In Cobourg, they go to the seniors' centre, offer they a Golden Ticket to the Afterlife and send them door-to-door. Each senior yells at the occupants until they say "89.7" and then they proceed to the next door.

Don Martin is retiring in December so Evan will take over on Jan 6/2020. Solomon will continue to host Question Period on Sunday. His daily radio show will air from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET. 

I will assume that Jim Richards will move from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on 1010.

No doubt it'll be an issue in the next election. In fact, I understand preparations are already underway for coverage of the 10th anniversary...

Why are people stopping there? Why not cancel their entire cable subscription? Or, better yet, renounce their Canadian citizenship (is Cherry even Canadian) and move to the U.S.? No, wait, they should take the ultimate solution and commit Seppuku.  

This is simply ridiculous. This is a victim of the 24-hour "breaking" news cycle. That said, I am incredibly happy that THIS is the major problem in our Great Land. There are countries out there where there is constant war -- whilst, here in the North 49th, the big deal is.... a sentence from a week ago.

The latest news is how Canadians are canceling their Sports Net cable packs...this issue is perhaps bigger than it is...On Breakfast Television this morning they were discussing Ron's segment on Saturday's HNIC and how healing has to happen...

In this report, it shares how Canadians are canceling their Sportsnet Subscriptions...interesting fall out from all of this for sure and my gut feeling is just like the SNC Lavalin affair earlier this year, this Don Cherry issue might be a media Christmas gift that keeps on giving for a few more weeks...

I wonder what the ratings were like during the usual Coaches Corner segment, like an accident on the highway, I am sure more people tuned in to rubber neck and see what was what.

Star 102.5 in Buffalo has been all Christmas since Nov. 1st. Promising to play Xmas tunes "102.5%" of the time, the onslaught of Yule-fueled gruel is sponsored by a liquor outlet store. That seems only appropriate, because listening to this for more than two straight months would be enough to drive anyone to drink!

Still, whatever your feeling about it, it seems to work year after year after year. My condolences to the jocks and on-air talent who have to sell this to their listeners.

Where is the station for "you people" this holiday season? I'm here for the milk and honey. I'm here for da music.

I've always been weary, in markets with so many similarly formatted stations, that those OFF clicks could be lasting. How many tepid CHFI listeners discover that CHUM 104.5 or Boom 97.3 sure are appealing these days?

CHFI isn't my cup of tea regardless what season they are celebrating. But, just like I toggle between professional talker NT1010 and amateur-hour over at GNR640, I would demand my workplace switch away from endless Satan Muzak to find something that won't force me to take an axe and randomly throw it at co-workers. 
 

 
Maybe CHFI should copy Star 102 Buffalo...they offer a link to regular Star 102 music online while the FM side continues with all Christmas music...they mention "Click on the Scrooge for regular Star 102 music" lol
