NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Calgary, January 2, 2019 – On January 7, 2019, one of Canada’s most engaging  new radio teams will take their show to a national audience for the first time. Katie & Ed, the morning team from 90.3 AMP Radio in Calgary, will launch a new national evening show on stations from Vancouver to St. John’s.

Katie & Ed

The Night Show with Katie & Ed will be heard on Stingray-owned radio stations, including:

 

  • 99.1 HITS-FM in St. John’s, NL
  • 101.9 The Giant in Sydney, NS
  • Hot 105.5 in Charlottetown, PEI
  • Hot 89.9 in Ottawa, ON
  • Hot 93.5 in Sudbury, ON
  • Z95.3 in Vancouver, BC

 

Katie & Ed have quickly become one of the most talked-about radio shows in Canada, constantly giving their audience a raw look into their lives and saying the things that everyone else is thinking, but afraid to say. With plenty of input from their producer Melissa and their listeners, Katie & Ed are unpredictable, unscripted, and unfiltered.

 

“I am so excited to be part of this nationwide show,” said Katie, “and I can’t wait to say something to accidentally offend listeners from all across the country.”

 

“I get a raise for this, right?” added Ed.

 

The Night Show with Katie & Ed launches January 7, 2019.

No offence to Katie and Ed who are probably ecstatic to gain national exposure of their talents.

The promo says Katie & Ed are unpredictable, unscripted, and unfiltered, may that is true but their employer Stingray isn’t bringing anything different to the radio game than the long term players. Seems like a play from the CORUS handbook of having your midday shows voice tracked out of Vancouver or replay your best Vancouver morning show bits on your Toronto stations.

Yet again the veteran self promoting programming geniuses that pat themselves on the back as they remember the successes of 10,20, 30 years ago fall short coming up with radio content today. However their survival depends on coming up with cost saving BS to their superiors and pray to their radio gods no one discovers the truth.

Lets be serious this is no more than content to plug into the computer jukebox between the songs and commercials. Listen to the ‘best of’ our Edmonton radio stations morning show. You may have been better off just airing the show and not letting the world know.

So a morning show duo in a minor market is also going to crank out a night time show foisted on disparate cities across the country. Yawn.
