“We are so pleased to have Charles return to Corus,” says Kenton Boston, VP of Global News and Corus Radio for western Canada. “Listeners will be offered lively debate and deep insight into all sides of the issues facing Canadians, from someone they admire and respect.”

Adler has a long history with Canadian listeners, stretching back to his days as a producer for Montreal’s CKGM AM in 1973.

He’s since hosted his own radio programs in Toronto, Winnipeg, and nationally, along with several television stints.

Prior to his move to Corus, he hosted The Charles Adler show on Sirius XM.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be reunited with Corus and look forward to having nightly conversations with old friends in BC, Alberta and Manitoba,” Adler says.

Prior to the launch of the new show, audiences will get a first listen Tuesday, November 8, when Adler takes the helm of Corus Radio’s special U.S. election coverage America Votes 2016.

That programming will air on CKNW beginning at 7 p.m. PT.
