Q107 SIZZLES THIS SUMMER WITH #1 RATINGS IN TORONTO

For Immediate Release

TORONTO, September 10, 2020 – With a blend of the best rock music from the 70’s to 90’s, and iconic personalities, Q107 (CILQ-FM) was the most listened to station in Toronto this summer, according to the newest Numeris radio ratings, released today. The station finished the summer with a 11.2 share of tuning for Adults 25-54 – the demographic looked at most closely by advertisers and agencies – putting the station at #1 against all other stations in the market*. The achievement marks the first time in 15 years that Q107 has been #1**.

“Though Q107 has been a quintessential station for rock fans in the GTA for decades, it once again reaching number one demonstrates that our music, on-air personalities and community involvement resonates with not only life-long listeners, but new ones too,” said Tammy Cole, Toronto/Hamilton Regional Program Director for Corus Radio. “We couldn’t be more proud of what our team has achieved. With the outstanding talent we have in place across all dayparts on Q107, we look forward to continuing this success long-term.”

Q107’s programming lineup kicks off every weekday through Derringer in the Morning with John Derringer from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. ET, followed by Joanne Wilder from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. ET, Fearless Fred from 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. ET, and Dan Chen/Kella from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. ET.
