The Breakfast Club Not a Good Fit For Canadian Radio, Toronto's FLOW 93-5 Drops the Show for Local Hosts

“All three hosts are unbelievable class acts and incredible entertainers – for the U.S.”

Toronto and Canada's only Hip-Hop station  FLOW 93-5 (CFXJ-FM) is bringing back local morning radio after a brief stint in morning drive with Charlamagne tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy of The Breakfast Club.

The station added iHeartRadio's syndicated morning show based out of Power 105.1 in New York back in May. But the show has not been a hit with Toronto listeners. Local hosts Blake Carter and Peter Kash, the former morning hosts who were pushed to afternoons, have now returned to mornings. 

Steve Parsons, general manager of FLOW’s parent company Stingray, says the programming change happened at “the exact wrong time.”The pandemic, the police killing of George Floyd and the U.S. election saw The Breakfast Club shift from pop culture and entertainment to focus more heavily on American politics.

“It didn’t match up with the culture of Toronto so we decided to make the change,” Parsons explains. “A couple days ago they were talking for 40 minutes about how to vote in Florida as an ex-felon. It’s not relevant to Toronto.”

“The show itself is still a killer show,” he adds.“All three hosts are unbelievable class acts and incredible entertainers – for the U.S.”
