“The best part of my job is launching new shows and spotlighting new, talented, contemporary Canadian voices,” said Larry Gifford, National Director of Talk Radio, Corus Entertainment. “Today is no different. Driven by a keen sense of curiosity, each of these hosts and commentators brings a unique perspective and expertise to our Global News radio stations. They are interested in moving the national discourse towards informative and entertaining conversation, while exploring issues and topics that matter most to Canadians.”
