• Mad Men came to an end Sunday night. I wont spoil things in this first paragraph but if you have already seen it or don't mind spoilers they do lie ahead. 
  • People were surprised to see just how many parents held their kids out of school on Monday to protest the province's new sex ed curriculum. But when I heard what some people were saying about it I was struck by two things: 1) that many people simply objected to any mention of homosexuality and 2) that a lot of the things they’re upset about simply aren't in the text. 
  • NEWSTALK 1010's new roundtable personality is...James Laidlaw!
  • Whenever rioting breaks out in black neighborhoods the talk quickly turns to why black people so easily degenerate into mobs, why black men need fathers, why it's so wrong for hard working people to lose their shops to people who are clearly just thugs and not political protesters
  • I know you're inundated with urgent appeals to watch videos. They always threaten to melt your heart or amaze you and no matter how many minutes of time is wasted waiting for the cat to push the miniature poodle off the end table you are always told "watch until the very end".


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.
