Now this is an interesting development. Evan is a superb commentator about and moderator to politicians and pundits. The CBC screwed up royally in firing him for his part-time forays into art dealing. CBC brass were so unnerved by publicity about their own alleged complicity in the Jian Ghomeshi scandal that they completely overreacted to Evan’s sideline being outed.

Who’d have thunk that a onetime literary-show host would morph into a political animal? l definitely tune in to his new show.

Might be the ticket for TSN1410. Running syndication talk and some BC regional programming might work for Bell both ratings and cost wise.

Could it be Evan will be on CFAX, hopefully eliminating or moving the ‘know it all’ who sits in the big chair from nine to noon. Since the firing of Ian Jessop, I find the talk shows BORING. All of them.
