I’ll just quote the press release for now. We can discuss particulars later.
Alan Cross Returns to Toronto’s 102.1 the Edge(July 17, 2014 – Toronto, Canada) Canada’s pre-eminent musicologist and authority in rock music, Alan Cross, returns to 102.1 the Edge, Toronto’s alternative radio station. Details regarding Alan’s new role will be announced in early fall.
“Alan Cross is synonymous with alternative music – he’s credible, authentic and true to the Edge brand,” said Dave Farough, General Manager, Corus Radio Toronto. “Having Alan back represents the next phase of the station’s evolution – returning to its music-based roots with intelligent conversation.”
“I spent a long time at the Edge — 1986 through 2011 — so it feels good to be back in the fold,” said Alan Cross. “A lot of people will say the Edge is my natural home, so let’s pick up where we left off, shall we?”
All questions will be answered in due time. I haven’t spoken to anyone in the press yet, but that’ll come later once a few details are ironed out. What I can tell you, however, is The Ongoing History of New Music will return this fall with brand new episodes and probably a few programs from the archives.
