Doug Ford says media is ‘very political’ and ‘constantly attacking’ — but he doesn’t mind
WATCH: During an exclusive interview on Thursday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford was asked if he thought the press is “fair” to him. “Not at all,” said Ford, who suggested the media was “constantly attacking him” and is “very political.” “You’re in politics though,” Toronto 640 host John Oakley replied with a chuckle – Feb 22, 2024

Ontario Premier Doug Ford is set to take part in an uninterrupted interview for almost half an hour on a Toronto radio station on Thursday afternoon.

The premier will join AM 640 host John Oakley for an interview at 3 p.m., with housing, affordability and crime among the topics he will be quizzed on.

AM640 is owned by Global News’ parent company, Corus Entertainment.

The radio booking represents a rare long-form interview with the premier, who has not taken part in similar year-end interviews for several years.

Mike Bendixen, national director of talk and director of talk and talent Toronto at Corus Radio, said the interview shows his station’s commitment to listeners.

“Having honest conversations with leading newsmakers is another example of our commitment to bringing listeners the very best content in Toronto radio,” Bendixen said.
