Canadian radio personality Alan Cross hired back by Toronto's Edge 102.1

TORONTO - Canadian radio personality Alan Cross is returning to his longtime home on the dial: Toronto's 102.1 the Edge.

The alternative rock station announced Thursday it had hired the music historian back but said details on his new role would come this fall.

Cross was with the station from 1986 through 2011 on and off before he was let go when his position was eliminated.

Cross is perhaps best-known for hosting the popular series "The Ongoing History of New Music."

He has also written several books on music, including "Over the Edge: The Revolution and Evolution of New Rock" and "The Alternative Music Almanac."

In a release, a representative from Corus Entertainment, which owns the station, said that Cross's return signalled a larger shift.

"Having Alan back represents the next phrase of the station's evolution — returning to its music-based roots with intelligent conversation," said Corus Radio Toronto general manager Dave Farough.

Added Cross: "A lot of people will say the Edge is my natural home, so let's pick up where we left off, shall we?"
