Josie Dye is exactly what radio needs.
You may recognize her name from a few places: If you’re in Toronto, you’ll likely have heard her on Indie 88 for the last few years, or on 102.1 The Edge back in the day. You might have also heard Cynthia & Josie’s Unmentionables, her podcast with Cynthia Loyst, which has been blowing up since it launched in 2022. Or, if you’re a long-time fan of the Sound Off Podcast, you may remember her as the very last guest we had on before the pandemic hit.
Either way, things have certainly changed for Josie since then. Besides the rapidly-growing podcast, she’s also moved from Indie 88 to possibly the most well-known call letters in Canada, 104.5 CHUM FM. In this episode, Josie tells us why she made the move, as well as sharing the (mostly) wonderful experiences she’s had at all the various stations she’s worked in. We also spend lots of time talking about the podcast, which, in only a few months, achieved numbers that took this show years to reach. Oh, and which she didn’t even want to do at first.
If you’re in Toronto, you can hear The Josie Dye Show on 104.5 CHUM FM, weekdays from 3-6pm EST. If you’re not in Toronto, you can listen live online here at the same time.
