Dean Blundell

Dean Blundell set to return to Toronto airwaves

Dean Blundell is set to return to Toronto airwaves with a new show to debut in March. The former radio host at 102.1 The Edge was turfed from the station back in December 2013 amidst controversy surrounding homophobic remarks made on air. Now, Blundell will return with Sportsnet 590 The FAN to host its morning show, as a shakeup has ensued from the move of Tim Micallef and Sid Seixeiro to an afternoon/evening television spot.

Dean Blundell & Co. will air from 5:30am to 9:00am starting on March 2nd. Social media reaction to the addition of Blundell has been swift and negative on the whole, with many questioning his track record as a shock jock. In a press release, Sportsnet characterized the hiring as an acquisition of "big talent" and referred to its ratings domination in the Toronto sports radio market.

What do you think? Will this prove a controversial move for Sportsnet?
