On-air personalities Scott Tucker and Maura Grierson make their return to morning radio today, as their new show Tucker and Maura in the Morning kicks off the relaunch of local radio brand Energy 95.3. Serving Greater Toronto and Hamilton, Energy 95.3 (formerly 95.3 Fresh Radio) returns to the region after an absence of nearly two decades as the home of Today’s Best Music, playing the biggest songs from the best pop artists in the world.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring the Energy radio brand back to Toronto and Hamilton, and introduce a new generation of listeners to a true cultural staple,” said Brad Phillips, VP and Head of FM Radio, Corus Entertainment. “To have a high-quality morning show team like Tucker and Maura to launch with is a dream come true; their proven results, experience, and energy make them a perfect fit.”
The last time the station was branded Energy was after a frequently swap with sister station CJXY-FM, now known as Y108. The station changed its branding from Energy 108 to Energy Radio. CING-FM was subsequently rebranded Country 95.3, Vinyl 95.3, and most recently Fresh 95.3.
In addition to Tucker and Maura, local favourite Colleen Rusholme returns to the airwaves to host afternoon drive from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. ET.

- Tucker and Maura in the Morning – 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
