OTTAWA, March 23, 2012 /CNW/ - In these days of breakfast television and mobile apps, is morning news radio still relevant?
More than ever, argue John Moore, NewsTalk 1010 morning show host, Marlane Oliver, 680 News morning news co-anchor and Laura Brown, Senior Producer of CBC Metro Morning - Toronto's number one non-music morning show.
It would be any radio program director's dream team to have Moore host, Oliver anchor the news and Brown produce that morning show on any news and talk radio station. Come see that dream on Saturday, April 28 at 10:45 a.m., come to the 2012 CAJ conference to see them discuss why morning radio still matters with moderator Steve Kowch, former program director at CFRB Newstalk 1010 in Toronto and now head of Kowchmedia.com.
Register today for the Canadian Association of Journalists conference. There are only two weeks remaining until early bird rates come to an end!
