• Sad news to pass on, Dorothy Jamieson has died. Although she left us at the age of 98 so I don't know that we can say she was stolen away. 
  • The news photo of a toddler lying facedown on a beach in Turkey in his red shirt, blue shorts and little shoes is unbearable. Which is why the migrant crisis has vaulted from NPR and BBC International onto the front pages of every paper in the world. 
  • I've been flattered by this cold since coming home from vacation but I have been doing some writing on the side. 
  • 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. 


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.
