Alan Cross Returns to Toronto's 102.1 the Edge

TORONTO, July 17, 2014 /CNW/ - 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?"
