John Tory lands gig as radio talk show host
Canwest News ServiceApril 24, 2009
John Tory -- former Rogers Media CEO, leader of Ontario's Progressive Conservative party, CFL commissioner and corporate lawyer -- has a new gig as a part-time radio host. Newstalk 1010 CFRB announced Thursday it's hiring Tory to host a one-hour talk show at 8 p.m. on Sundays, starting this weekend. ''For me, it's kind of a fun thing," Tory said. "The first full-time job I ever had was in radio.'' Steve Kowch, CFRB's operations manager, said he e-mailed Tory within minutes of his loss in last month's Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock byelection. Kowch said he hopes Tory will become comfortable enough to fill in for other hosts, and perhaps even do a daily talk show. Tory, 55, said he has been talking with many people about various possible jobs and expects to decide before summer about what his next professional step is.
