For Immediate Release
KITCHENER, September, 25, 2019 – It’s official, Scott Fox and Kat Callaghan are coming home. 91.5 The Beat, the Tri-Cities’ #1 hit music station, announced today that the popular on-air team have been tapped to host the station’s new morning show, The Beat Breakfast with Scott and Kat. Fox and Callaghan, both from Cambridge, can be heard across Waterloo Region weekdays from 5:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. ET beginning Monday, September, 30.
“Scott and Kat are an incredibly talented morning show team and we’re very excited to bring them back home to Waterloo Region,” said Lars Wunsche, Regional Director for Corus Radio. “Not only are they some of the best hosts in the business, but they live here and love it – I think that will really resonate with listeners every morning.”
Fox and Callaghan come to The Beat after more than seven years co-hosting the Z103.5 morning show in Toronto. During that time they received numerous accolades; including honours in the Toronto Sun Readers’ Choice Awards Best Morning Show category four times, and winning Top Choice Morning Show from the GTA Top Choice Awards three times. With both previously having successful stints on-air in KW as well, their longtime fan base in the area will be able to enjoy their new show on The Beat.
“I’m really excited to be coming home! 13 years ago I started my radio journey at 91.5 The Beat, now I’m thrilled to be able to wake up the region I love so much and know so well,” said Kat Callaghan.
“My career may have started in Toronto, but being born and raised in Cambridge, there’s something really special about returning home to live out this dream of being on the radio in the Tri-Cities,” said Scott Fox
Alongside the arrival of the new morning show, former The Beat mainstay Mr. D returns to the station to host in his familiar evening timeslot (7 p.m. – 12 a.m. ET). For more information visit 915thebeat.com.
