TORONTO - Standard Radio's Toronto flagship Newstalk 1010 CFRB announced some lineup alterations to its listeners this week.

As of Monday, August 23rd, The Bill Carroll Show starts 30 minutes earlier after the 8:30 a.m. news. This is the trend for talk radio across Canada and the United States. It gives listeners on their way to work a chance to hear Toronto's most listened to talk show host. Starting the Bill Carroll Show after the 8:30 a.m. news gives Toronto a head start to discussing the big issues of the day on Newstalk 1010 CFRB, says the station.

"The Ted Woloshyn Morning Show also undergoes some fine tuning. When he returns from holidays on Monday, August 30th you will hear more of Ted between 5:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. We'll be releasing more details about the Ted Woloshyn Morning Show later this week. But if you listen to the morning show this week with guest host John Donabie you will get a sample of our new information package at the top and bottom of each hour. The new 15 minute information package will provide you with Toronto's best news, traffic, sports, weather and business," says the release.

"Bill Carroll is not the only thing that's new after the 8:30 a.m. news Monday to Friday. You'll also hear a new Entertainment Tonight report from Hollywood with the latest scoop on the biggest names in the entertainment industry.
