Bio: I’m a huge fan of the edge I listen to it all the time I’m also a recovering drug addict I want to show others suffering from addiction that it’s ok to be open about it and you can still be picked for great things plus if I can reach out to just one person by winning this contest and having a chance to tell my story it will be a dream come true thank you Edge.

Kyle MacDonald (Instagram: @kialmac) – July 15th Fan Friday Winner
Bio: I am a super-fan because I have made listening to the station a daily part of my life. It’s become a part of my routine to yell, “Alexa…play 102.1 The Edge,” while I get ready for the day, or drudge through chores at home. I’m listening while commuting. It’s also been the soundtrack and companionship when I would take long drives to visit family a few hours away (the 401 is even more of hell-on-earth without it) Heck, I even leave the station on for my parrot when I leave the house. I also follow the station’s socials (bonus points?) And of course, I am a super-fan because I appreciate what all the hosts have done for me. They make my days better with their humour, especially Kolter and Meredith’s banter in my ears while I’m working. Radio can really help create a positive impact through the conversations and content made on-air. The Edge has done that for me. Plus, $5000 would be super helpful for me. Have you seen how much they want for a cell phone bill, or keeping a tiny one bedroom apartment in good ol’ Oshawa? Insanity.. Thanks for reading! – Kyle

Bio: I have been an Edge listener for at least 15 years (probably more, but I don’t want to feel THAT old, so I won’t do the math). When I was in University, I would walk by the studio on a daily basis to see what you guys were up too (a bit creepy, I get it).

Ryan Latorre (Instagram: @EdgeFanRyan) – Aug 12th Fan Friday Winner
Bio: You have literally been in my life for 29 years, my musical “edge-ucation”. The video took me 8 days to do, it is very hard to tell you how much I love this station in just 45 seconds. I asked for a radio as a gift for my kitchen, just to listen to the Edge with my coffee in the morning and while I make dinner. The only time I am not listening to the Edge is when the Jays are playing. Do I deserve $5,000? I can’t honestly say I do. People probably need the money more than me. It would be helpful, as I have bills like everyone else. I have listened to your station for free since 1993, and would continue to do so without being paid. There is something magical about hanging out at the station that compels to enter this one again. Thank you and I hope the video shows you something about who I am.
Top 5 Songs: 1. Quitting You – Arkells 2. Black Summer – RHCP 3. Blow Up – The Beaches 4. Missing Piece – Vance Joy 5. Chapstick – Coin
Lunch Pail Rob (Instagram: @soergelr) – Aug 19th Fan Friday Winner
Bio: I am your biggest fan for sure l have been listening to you for some years on 102.1 and came over with the morning crew from Hamilton. l have been a listener of Corus stations forever which is a long time. l am simply amazed at the interaction that occurs on all of your shows, l have had issues taken care of through bad advice and been able to cleanse my soul numerous time with father Chris. The humor that l myself get from the show is better than therapy lol. Your station has introduced me to a whole new range of music and allowed my to actually go and see some of the bands live that l’m listening to on the Edge how awesome is that!. The B Team have helped me through some difficult times and l am one of the most reliable fan you will ever get.

I WANT REDEMPTION)
