Rogers Radio Adds Serena Ryder Show To Its AC Network

By FYI Staff

Multiple Juno-winning singer-songwriter Serena Ryder expands her career horizon with a new live, two-hour radio show that is to be syndicated across AC stations under the Rogers Radio umbrella.


The initial eight-episode Serena Ryder Show season launches Sunday, Sept. 23 from noon to 2:00 pm ET, and will broadcast live from Toronto’s CHFI studios.

Rogers programming VP Paul Kaye tells FYI that the idea for the show came after Ryder hosted Pop Up Playlist in the spring of 2017. The semi-regular show runs on CHFI and other Rogers AC stations and features artists and celebrities taking over the station to play their favourite songs, chat with listeners and share insights about their lives.

“Serena was a natural,” on that show Kaye explained, “and the audience response was extremely positive. From there, we wanted to find a way to bring her back to our listeners on a more regular basis.”

“I’m so excited to have my own national radio show on 98.1 CHFI,” said Ryder in the same prepared media release. “Get ready to hear all my behind-the-scenes stories from touring – along with a chance to call in to ask me anything, and hear stories from ‘behind the songs’ with me and some of my friends. Radio waves here I come!”

  • 96.7 CHYM – Kitchener, ON

  • KiSS 100.5 – North Bay, ON

T.I. Credits J. Cole for Stepping Out of Kendrick Lamar-Drake Feud: ‘That Was Quite Mature of Him’

But he also feels the two beefing artists ruined things for those "who were planning to drop" music during the battle.

While the dust appears to have settled in the Kendrick Lamar and Drake feud, other rappers are still providing their takeaways from the massive battle that swept the hip-hop world and permeated pop culture.

T.I. pulled up to Big Boy’s Neighborhood in an episode that dropped May 16, where he broke down the Drake-K. Dot battle as Big Boy peppered him with questions. Tip believes that Cole chose “peace and tranquility” when it comes to bowing out of the feud after dropping “7 Minute Drill” (which he later removed from streaming services following his apology to Lamar at Dreamville Fest).
