MONTREAL – It was a playful April Fool’s morning for Global Montreal Morning News viewers and listeners of Cat and Sarah from The Beat Breakfast on The Beat 92.5.

You could forgive regular viewers and listeners for thinking that somebody got their wires crossed.

At 7:00 am Wednesday morning the two stations switched things up by taking over each other’s airwaves.

Cat and Sarah, along with Natasha Hall from The Beat Breakfast made a surprising appearance on the Morning News.

“Sometimes, things happen that make you scratch your head & wonder what just happened! That’s exactly what we hoped to achieve with our little switch-a-roo,” said Sarah Bartok, from The Beat Breakfast.

“Thanks to the entire Global team for making this April Fools prank come to life…and for making me appreciate even more so how a full face of make-up is not required for morning radio.”

There was a lot of laughter on both sides as the two morning show teams got a taste of what it’s  like hosting a different morning show.

“It’s easy to see why the Beat Breakfast with Cat and Sarah is Montreal’s number one Morning radio show,” said Jessica Laventure.

“I felt immediately comfortable with Cat, Sarah and Natasha. Nothing creepy, I just… smelled their hair and followed them home. You know, normal closeness.”

Global Montreal Morning News viewers were left wondering if the news headlines were too good to be true when Sarah announced that Canadiens star P.K. Subban was being traded to the Boston Bruins.

Meanwhile, listeners to The Beat Breakfast can be forgiven for any mini meltdown they may have experienced when Richard and Camille announced a new by-law banning drivers from drinking any liquid while behind the wheel.
