Metro Morning: Only the best
(CBC Still Photo Collection)
This ad from 1986 promotes Metro Morning, featuring Joe Cote, Shelagh Rogers and Jim Curran.
Metro Morning has been on the air in Toronto since 1973. Curran, the traffic reporter, has been with the show since its start.
Metro Morning is the audio version of Toronto's Yonge Street: a central urban artery that cuts through the heart of the city and beyond; connecting people, neighbourhoods, communities, diverse pockets and populations.
The program expresses the realities of life and experience in Canada's largest city through a weave of news, current affairs and the information you need to start your day, including consistent and predictable weather and traffic.
The show is now hosted by Matt Galloway every week day from 5:30-8:30 a.m.
