TORONTO – Q107 in Toronto is delighted to introduce Jennifer Valentyne as co-host of its popular morning show.

“I’m excited to join a morning show I already love and regularly tune-in to,” said Jennifer Valentyne.”I think Toronto listeners will be surprised to see a whole new side of me – I can’t wait!”
Valentyne is no stranger to Toronto audiences. A beloved media veteran with multiple decades of experience, Valentyne started her career at Key 590. She is best known for her impressive run at City TV’s Breakfast Television. Over the course of her career, she has interviewed a number of prominent celebrities such as Billy Crystal, Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum and Harrison Ford, but her passion has always been speaking to the people in her community.
“Jennifer is the perfect fit to round out our existing all-star team,” said Blair Bartrem, Senior Program Director, Q107. “We’ve been searching for our very own Elaine to join our Seinfeld-like cast of characters and now we’ve found her.”
