This podcast is a first of its kind and will deepen our relationship with the community and listeners who prefer podcasts. It will be supported by Curiouscast and produced by an all-star audio team who are on the pulse of everything Toronto.”
Dani Stover is an on-air contributor for 640 Toronto and hosts the station’s new evening show Let’s Talk with Dani Stover weekdays from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Launched in November 2022, Let’s Talk with Dani Stover dives deep on some of the days major stories covered on 640 Toronto as well as from London’s 980 CFPL and Hamilton’s 900 CHML.

“I’ve always had a passion for telling stories, and this city is full of them. I’m excited to bring my love of Toronto to the table, with a healthy dose of humour and cynicism on the side,” said Dani Stover. “As someone who’s hosted other podcasts before, this one is different because we are supported by a content-making machine at 640 Toronto, which will allow us to share multiple sides to every story and keep listeners informed. Today in TO will be gentle, yet spicy, while diving into the exciting, important, and frustrating stories happening in and around the city.”
