VANCOUVER, September 11, 2020 Global News Radio is proud to launch an exciting new program, The Joel Matlin Entrepreneur Show, as well as announce the addition of two new personalities, Jawn Jang and Mo Amir, coming to its talk radio stations this weekend. Meera Estrada and Bee Quammie also return to host kultur’D on Global News Radio 640 Toronto this fall.

Airing weekly at 2 p.m. PST/5 p.m. EST across seven of its talk radio stations starting Sunday, September 13, The Joel Matlin Entrepreneur Show will introduce listeners to the most successful entrepreneurs in Canadian business. They’ll bring their inspirational, behind-the-scenes stories of how they built their companies from scratch, and leave the audience feeling motivated to take on exciting new ventures of their own. Listeners can tune-in on Global News Radio 980 CKNW Vancouver, Global News Radio 770 CHQR Calgary, 630 CHED Edmonton, Global News Radio 680 CJOB Winnipeg, Global News Radio 980 CFPL London, Global News Radio 900 CHML Hamilton and Global News Radio 640 Toronto.

Jawn Jang has signed on as a late night host across the AM radio network from 1 a.m. – 5 a.m. ET/10 p.m. – 2 a.m. PT on Saturday mornings. Jang is familiar to listeners from his most recent position co-hosting midmornings on Sportsnet 650 in Vancouver. He also brings on-air experience from other FM stations in large and small markets. He has a passion for connecting with listeners and telling stories from across the country.

On Global News Radio 980 CKNW, Mo Amir, well-known host and producer of This is VANCOLOUR, one of Vancouver’s most popular independent podcasts, will now provide weekly commentary for the station. A VANCOLOUR Moment on CKNW is a weekly, heartfelt commentary segment served up spicy. While the segment will range from incisive one week and light-hearted the next, A VANCOLOUR Moment promises to always be an honest and curious conversation-starter on relevant political and cultural issues.

“The best part of my job is launching new shows and spotlighting new, talented, contemporary Canadian voices,” said Larry Gifford, National Director of Talk Radio, Corus Entertainment. “Today is no different. Driven by a keen sense of curiosity, each of these hosts and commentators brings a unique perspective and expertise to our Global News radio stations. They are interested in moving the national discourse towards informative and entertaining conversation, while exploring issues and topics that matter most to Canadians.”

On Global News Radio 640 Toronto, kultur’D continues for a third season on Saturday nights from 8 p.m. – 9 p.m. EST with Meera Estrada and Bee Quammie. Not your usual pop culture show, kultur’D uses pop culture as a gateway to larger themes that affect us all, with emphasis on diversity of people and thought. The show address topics that may sometimes be seen as taboo, but challenges the status quo in a smart and engaging way – making listeners think and reflect on the conversation and how it makes them feel. Each episode includes dynamic guests that add to the lively conversation. Listeners can also subscribe and tune-in via Apple or Google Podcasts.
