oh lord, it is true..

As I was scared to report a while back there were rumors going around the Toronto radio rumor mill that Ben Mulroney will be fronting his own radio show on CHUM-FM. Looks like it's true. These are the times when I wonder why really talented, funny guys who love radio and know radio more than most don't have gigs at the moment. These are the times when I miss the older guys who made radio fun. These are the days when I hate radio suits.

From Google News

"Canadian Idol" host Ben Mulroney is once again following in the footsteps of his "American Idol" counterpart, Ryan Seacrest.

CTV says Mulroney, co-host of "ETalk," has co-created a new syndicated radio show called "ETalk20" that kicks off this weekend in 11 cities across the country.

All but two of the radio stations running the program are properties of CHUM, which is part of the CTVglobemedia family.

Like Seacrest's radio shows in the U.S., Mulroney's two-hour program offers entertainment news, celebrity interviews and runs down the country's hit songs.

Producer Trevor Hammond is the other co-creator of Mulroney's new show.

"ETalk" co-host Tanya Kim and the entire team from the TV show will also be part of the radio program.
