ETALK veteran host Ben Mulroney adds radio airwaves to his repertoire as host of ETALK 20, a weekly two-hour radio show launching this weekend that counts down the hottest chart-topping tunes in Canada. The all-new radio program features marquee interviews with the hottest celebrities, along with a dose of all the latest news, gossip and entertainment that ETALK delivers weeknights as Canada’s most-watched entertainment newsmagazine. ETALK 20 launches the weekend of April 18-19 on select radio stations in 11 cities across the country, including Sunday, April 19 at 10 p.m. ET on anchor station 104.5 CHUM FM in Toronto (see below for local broadcast times).
Joined by ETALK host and music specialist Tanya Kim and the entire ETALK team, including gossip maven Lainey, ETALK 20 delivers a lineup jam-packed with the biggest names in music and entertainment. Toronto’s legendary 104.5 CHUM FM anchors the weekly music countdown, which features the hottest 20 tracks as charted by CHUM affiliate radio stations, along with interviews with the biggest musical artists, and the latest in entertainment news and gossip.
“It’s a delight to switch gears and host ETALK 20,” said Mulroney, who co-created the show along with producer Trevor Hammond. “ETALK delivers unparalleled star wattage to Canadians each weeknight on CTV and Star! Now we can continue the dialogue with CHUM listeners throughout the weekends on a different medium with a brand they know and trust.”
“ETALK 20 takes the countdown concept and adds a special ETALK flourish,” said ETALK Executive Producer Morley Nirenberg. “Listeners can tune in to radio’s hottest tracks each week, and keep up with ETALK news and Lainey Gossip segments as seen on the daily show, plus exclusive celebrity interviews with the biggest stars on the planet.”
