TEXT SIZE bigger text smaller text

Astral Radio is putting "Humble" Howard Glassman and Fred Patterson back on the air.

Beginning January 21st, the Humble & Fred Radio Show will air weekday evenings on Funny 820 Hamilton, Funny 1410 in London, Ontario and News Talk 1010 CFRB Toronto.

The show is said to feature both new content and highlights from their popular podcast.

"It's with great trepidation that we are partnering with Humble & Fred," said Rob Farina, EVP Content & Platforms for Astral Radio. "We hope for the best, but expect Humble & Fred to bring nothing but heart ache and lawsuits."

Nevertheless, Astral says new new stations will be added to the syndication list over the next year.

Glassman and Patterson are best known for their long-running morning show on Toronto radio station 102.1 The Edge, starting back in 1989.

The pair has worked separately for the past several years, but has reunited in some basement to create daily podcasts, available on iTunes and on HumbleAndFredRadio.com. The show was also available online via Rogers’ radio station websites.

"We're thrilled to be part of the evolution of comedy on Astral," Humble & Fred said synchronistically. "We look forward to the opportunity to be fired by them again!"
