About The Show

The Exchange promises to entertain and create buzz. Each night a different host goes head-to-head with a guest commentator. Expect strong debate, lively discussion and some laughs. Any topic is fair game- from hard news – to the latest controversy blowing-up the Twitterverse (tweet your comments to the hosts or use the hashtag #CJAD). Listen, enjoy, participate.

Dan Delmar

Dan Delmar (Monday/Wednesday) - Delmar is a news nerd with roughly 15 years’ experience in print, radio, television and digital media. He has strong opinions and doesn’t shy away from controversy, as long as it's constructive, measured and doesn't disappoint his mother. He is the managing partner of PR/communications consultancy Provocateur, a contributor with The National Post (and its Full Comment blog), as well as a contributor to CJAD 800 (and occasionally with other Bell Media outlets like Newstalk 1010 Toronto and CTV News Channel). Before breaking political news, including Quebec’s “Pastagate,” Delmar studied journalism, cinema and marketing, beginning his career with Montreal’s The Suburban. He was later named managing editor of bilingual commentary journal The Métropolitain. He enjoys Polish vodka, pretentious cuisine and trolling cabinet ministers on Twitter.
