TORONTO, May 8, 2018 – Global News Toronto hosts its third annual Greater Toronto Day on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, in keeping with the spirit of its brand promise, Global News Believes in a Greater Toronto. The station again joins forces with Toronto-based Corus Radio stations, 102.1 the EdgeQ107 and Global News Radio 640 Toronto.
