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!”

The first eight-episode season launches Sunday, Sept. 23 shows that will air on:

  • 96.7 CHYM – Kitchener, ON

  • KiSS 100.5 – North Bay, ON

  • KiSS 100.5 – Sault Saint Marie, ON

  • KiSS 105.3 – Sudbury, ON

Karan Aujla & DIVINE Debut in Top 25 on Billboard Canadian Albums Chart

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE land the No. 22 spot on this week's Canadian Albums chart with their new collaborative release, 'Street Dreams.' On the Canadian Hot 100, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em" ascends to No. 1, while Canadian pop artist Preston Pablo makes a debut.

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE are making moves together on Billboard's Canadian Albums chart this week, with their collaborative project, Street Dreams, debuting in the No. 22 spot.

The seven-track album, released Feb. 16, blends harder hip-hop and smooth R&B pop, the latter shining through especially on the Jonita Gandhi-assisted "Yaad." It's not Aujla's highest spot on the Albums chart — he reached No. 5 in 2023 with Making Memories, his collaboration with Canadian Punjabi artist Ikky — but it gives him some momentum going into his upcoming performance at the Juno Awards on Mar. 24, where he's nominated for TikTok Juno fan choice and breakthrough artist.
