NewsTalk 1010 has cancelled Doug and Rob Ford’s radio talk show
The CBC’s Jamie Strashin is reporting that The City has been cancelled by NewsTalk 1010. The Sunday afternoon show—which features city councillor Doug Ford and mayor Rob Ford discussing the news of the day and taking calls from their own hagiographers—has become a point of contention in Toronto, with many citizens wondering why a person of such political prominence in the city was given a broadcast soapbox from BellMedia, a private company.
1010 cuts ties with Fords, The City will no longer air.

“NewsTalk 1010, Mayor Ford and Councillor Ford have mutually determined to conclude broadcasts of The City, ending with last week’s show,” says an extremely brief statement on NewsTalk’s website. “Of course, Mayor Ford and Councillor Ford remain welcome at any time as guests on NewsTalk 1010.”

It would appear that there are many other media outlets covering the Fords right now, so we really don’t need this weekly farce on the airwaves.
Fords are ratings gold for them.
One less venue for Ford to lie to the public and call the media “maggots”.
lol at the hagiographers comment
WERE ratings gold.
Thank goodness. Bye bye bully blowhards.
Some Ford Nationers already calling on fellow knuckle draggers to boycott CFRB. Now if we can just get them to boycott voting.
What took ya so long???
I couldn’t listen to their show. Too much Ford brothers propaganda for me. Instead, I waited for the recap on an internet blog later in the week.
really? hagiographers? The writer is sure pretentious, the average person won’t know WTF he is talking about. Instead you should have said “supporters”, means the same thing and everyone can understand it.
DUH the guy is abnormal- he uses drugs for gods sake!
Why is Robert Ford still employed? Now selling bobbal head’s for his own profit.T.O ,come this summer, T.O will suffer. He also is on tape threating to kill someone.Shame on him.We r already a laughing stock around the globe.
