Alan Cross Returning to 102.1 The EdgeThursday, July 17th, 2014
Canada’s pre-eminent musicologist and authority in rock music, Alan Cross, is returning to Toronto’s radio station 102.1 the Edge in a -yet-to-be-announced role. Details regarding Cross’s new role are expected in early fall.
“Alan Cross is synonymous with alternative music – he’s credible, authentic and true to the Edge brand,” said Dave Farough, General Manager, Corus Radio Toronto. “Having Alan back represents the next phase of the station’s evolution – returning to its music-based roots with intelligent conversation.”
“I spent a long time at the Edge — 1986 through 2011 — so it feels good to be back in the fold,” said Alan Cross. “A lot of people will say the Edge is my natural home, so let’s pick up where we left off, shall we?”
Alan Cross is also a consultant for Indie 88, a competitor of The Edge in Toronto’s alternative music radio market.
