Evan Solomon lands new radio gig
Former CBC host Evan Solomon has a new gig at 580 CFRA News Talk Radio in Ottawa. Bell Media Radio says Solomon is taking on the role of national affairs specialist at the station, where he is host and executive producer of Ottawa Now. He’ll also host the new syndicated weekend program Real Talk. He anchored the CBC News Network’s series Power & Politics and CBC Radio’s The House until last summer. CBC dismissed Solomon after the Toronto Star alleged he took advantage of his position to broker lucrative art deals between a friend and wealthy interview subjects. Solomon denied any wrongdoing.
