I would like to thank Jerry Agar for referencing this blog on his CFRB-AM/NewsTalk 1010 radio show earlier today (as well as on his own blog). NewsTalk 1010 is by and large the WLS-AM 890 or WGN-AM 720 of Toronto, if not Ontario. It is a mega radio station in Canada with a lot of reach and heritage.
Agar, a former Chicago radio host at both WLS and WGN, was referencing the piece I wrote last week about him comparing Toronto politics, and more specifically Mayor Rob Ford, versus the political nonsense that Illinois is long known for. In that piece, I mentioned that NewsTalk 1010 is the type of news/talk station I wish we had in Chicago. NewsTalk 1010, both on air and online, trumps most of the various talk stations in the U.S.
You can listen the audio from Jerry Agar’s show using the player below (approximately two minutes).
