TORONTO, Nov. 20 /CNW/ - CFRB Listeners have voted for Toronto comedian
Kevin Foxx to be the winning Talk Radio Idol. Kevin will host his first show
this Sunday 9pm to 10pm on Newstalk 1010 CFRB.
The vote was very close. 52% of listeners who voted online at cfrb.com
chose Kevin Foxx over real estate agents and best friends Lisa Dance and Tina
Bowen. More than 400 people entered the Talk Radio Idol competition. Sixteen
contestants hosted their own half-hour talk show. To reach the finals Kevin,
Lisa and Tina had to each win four shows in a row in order to participate in
Sunday night's final.
During the competition we found that everyone has ONE talk show in them.
Talk Radio Idol was developed to provide an opportunity of a life time for
listeners to host their own talk show on Newstalk 1010 CFRB.
While Kevin wins the show ... we have decided that Lisa and Tina will be
the substitute hosts when Kevin is unable to be in Toronto to host his show
because of travel commitments associated with his work as a comedian.
Season Two of Talk Radio Idol returns in April 2008.
