Burns will also host the iHeartRadio Top 20 every Sunday at 10 a.m. on the network, while Myles Galloway moves into her former 7 – 11 p.m. iHeartRadio Nights time slot.

The new Virgin Radio Weekender will air Sundays from 6 -10 p.m., hosted by Virgin Toronto personality and music director Dames Nellas, Virgin Radio Vancouver afternoon drive host Amy Spencer, and Virgin Radio Calgary midday host Juliette Nunes.
