The B Team join 102.1 the Edge CFNY-FM for Mornings
Toronto’s alternative station, 102.1 the Edge (CFNY-FM) has launched its new morning show The B Team.
Hosted by Shawna, Chris Z and Jay Brody – former morning show hosts on sister rock radio station Y108 in Hamilton – The B Team airs weekdays from 5:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. ET on the Edge.
“We’re really excited to bring edge back to the Edge with one of the country’s most bold morning shows in The B Team,” said Tammy Cole, Toronto/Hamilton Regional Program Director for Corus Radio. “To deliver that, as well as expand Taz & Jim – who as a duo have dominated in a major Ontario market for almost a decade – to Hamilton in their place is great news for listeners on both the Edge and Y.”
Since teaming up to host the Y108 (CJXY-FM) morning show in 2018, Shawna, Chris Z and Jay Brody have become beloved locally, delivering their unique brand of hilariously edgy radio banter. The trio depart after a combined twenty years at the station; mainstays Shawna and Chris Z having co-hosted previous iterations of the morning show together, with newest member Jay Brody joining from a prior stint at SiriusXM.
Filling the vacated Y108 morning show slot is Taz & Jim. Taz and Jim Kelly have consistently ranked as the #1 rated morning team in the London, Ont. market since their show’s debut nearly a decade ago. In addition to airing live on Y108, Taz & Jim will continue to be live on FM96 in London – with local traffic, news and updates provided for both markets – weekdays from 5:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. ET.
102.1 the Edge’s full programming lineup is rounded out by ever-present Carly in her familiar midday slot from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. ET, afternoon drive duo Kolter and Meredith from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. ET and evening announcer Kevin Getz from 7 p.m. – 12 a.m. ET.
