CHFI Announces New Co-Host for Morning Show


Beginning January 9,  Maureen Holloway signs on to wake Torontonians up each weekday morning with the launch of the all-new morning show Darren and Mo on 98.1 CHFI, alongside co-host Darren B. Lamb. With her infectious laugh, relatable humour, and fresh take on culture and entertainment, listeners can expect to stay informed – and entertained – all morning long. Adding to the mix, seasoned radio vet Christine Cardoso joins the duo as News Specialist, rounding out the 98.1 CHFI morning team.

As previously announced, beloved radio host Erin Davis will sign off as the voice of mornings on 98.1 CHFI, following a stellar career spanning nearly 30 years. Fans can tune in tomorrow from 5 to 9 a.m. to hear Davis’s heartfelt final show from a special live-broadcast celebration at Casa Loma in Toronto.

“Maureen is one of Canada’s most respected broadcasters. She is down to earth, intelligent, warm, and has a cunning sense of humour that will keep audiences entertained. She and Darren will make a great pair.” Said Julie Adam, Senior Vice President, Rogers Radio. “We are so excited to welcome Maureen, as well as the tremendously talented Christine, to the Rogers Radio family and the 98.1 CHFI team.”

Born in Montreal, with a degree in Film Studies from Carleton University in Ottawa, Holloway began her broadcasting career when she was hired out of Ryerson’s Radio and Television Arts program to be a traffic reporter on CKFM with Don Daynard, and later went on to host several shows on the station. In 2000, she left to spend the next 15 years as co-host on Derringer in the Morning with Maureen Holloway. Holloway was most recently heard on the afternoon drive show on Toronto’s Rock Q107, The Mo Show, where she has been host since 2015.

Holloway is the recipient of the Canadian Association of Broadcaster’s Gold Ribbon Award for Humour. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, Holloway is an outspoken advocate for women’s health issues, and proud to be associated with fundraising campaigns for St. Michael’s Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital, Women’s College Hospital, and Wellspring.
Christine Cardoso is best known for her 10 year run alongside Mike Cooper as the co-host of Mike and Christine in the Morning at 97.3 EZ Rock FM in Toronto. Before sharing the morning show marquee, Cardoso was an entertainment reporter, traffic reporter, news reader, and lifestyle reporter at 97.3 FM.

Darren and Mo airs weekdays from 5 to 9 a.m. on 98.1 CHFI and online at CHFI.com, entertaining listeners with the perfect mix of music, news, weather, traffic, and laughter to kick-start their mornings.
