TORONTO market veterans HUMBLE HOWARD GLASSMAN and FRED PATTERSON are back on broadcast radio with a new late-night show for ASTRAL MEDIA that will air on Talk CFRB-A (NEWSTALK 1010)/TORONTO, Comedy CHAM-A (FUNNY 820)/HAMILTON, and Comedy CKSL-A (FUNNY 1410)/LONDON, ON, starting JANUARY 21st. The new show will air midnight-2a (ET) weeknights, in a slot presently occupied by the syndicated 24/7 COMEDY RADIO.
HUMBLE AND FRED are best known for their long run in mornings at CORUS Alternative CFNY (102.1 THE EDGE). They have been hosting a podcast for the last year.
"It's with great trepidation that we are partnering with HUMBLE AND FRED", said ASTRAL EVP/Content & Platforms ROB FARINA. "We hope for the best, but expect HUMBLE AND FRED to bring nothing but heart ache and lawsuits."
"We're thrilled to be part of the evolution of Comedy on ASTRAL", said the hosts in a press release. "We look forward to the opportunity to be fired by them again!"
