“Monday’s wall-to-wall coverage will give our TV, radio and online audiences exclusive access to everything happening on the streets of Toronto and at the post-parade celebration.”
Global News Toronto anchors Alan Carter and Farah Nasser will be live from Nathan Phillips Square, bringing audiences the sights and sounds of the celebrations.
Global News reporters will also be positioned throughout the parade route speaking to fans and following the players.
Coverage will include notable guests with insight into the Raptors’ historic victory.
