• Joel MacCharles, winner of the NEWSTALK 1010 'Be the First' contest makes history before jet-setting to NYC!
  • A lot of you remember when my niece and nephew were kids and I impersonated them as Hansel and Gretel from Bugs Bunny. Well they aren't kids anymore and for the record, they now speak unaccented English not to mention German and French. They're great kids and this past weekend Vivienne got married. 
  • For true fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide that may be a somewhat extreme title. I am out of here for a week so look after yourselves, enjoy Alex and Tony and I'll have plenty of stories and a bad Scottish accent when I get back. 
  • I'm on a bit of a reading binge. And it's largely because of a message I saw on Facebook. It read "If you have time for Facebook, you have time to read". And it's true. How much time do you spend scrolling through Facebook and Twitter hoping for something to jump out at you? Then you check your watch and realize you have spent twenty minutes looking at birthdays, pet obituaries, treacly maxims about the meaning of life and pictures of restaurant meals?
  • The headline writers must have wanted this show to suck. "Stinky Boots" would be too much fun to ignore. But it doesn't. Kinky Boots, now showing at the Royal Alex on King is a rollicking good time. 


Born and raised in Montreal, John Moore arrived in Toronto in 2003 to take over the afternoon show on NEWSTALK 1010 but was already a regular contributor to the morning show since 1999 – the show he currently hosts. Moore in the Morning, the informative morning show airs Monday to Friday 5:30AM – 9AM.

John holds a degree in Communications from Concordia University and graduated from the School of Community and Public Affairs. He cut his teeth as a hard news reporter and anchor in the 1980s before moving into entertainment and arts reporting which involved fewer separatist rallies and more free wine. His movie reviews and freewheeling entertainment commentaries were a staple for years on several Montreal stations, NEWSTALK 1010 and Global Television.

John was one of the founders of the award winning On the Spot Improv and spent years playing reporters and evil lawyers in film and television. He worked as a director and reporter at the French language CBC for two years before they decided his accent wasn’t nearly as cute as everyone had thought. Moore also writes regularly for The National Post.
