They let him go in 2014, but now 680 CJOB is having a change of heart about Hal Anderson.
The former morning man (and 34th “greatest Canadian”) is returning to the air for Hal Anderson Weekends, airing 7-10 a.m. CT beginning February 4.
“I’m so excited about returning to my favourite radio station! I’ve missed CJOB and its listeners and I think they’ve missed me too,” Anderson said.
“My new weekend morning show will be like family around a big kitchen table and everyone is welcome to grab a chair.”
Anderson also had a brief stint at the former FAB 94.3 during his time away from Corus Entertainment.
Before Anderson begins his show, he will co-host with CJOB’s Shadoe Davis, weekend mornings from January 13-30.
