Shad is the new host of Q

CBC’s Q Radio Program has been embroiled in controversy the last little while.  Ever since the fall of Jian Ghomeshi 4 months ago (as of the date of this article), it has been a whirlwind of a search to find a worthy successor.

And they have one.  A cerebral, excellent, talented rapper and interviewer.  Shad has been announced as the new permanent host of Q.

A Juno Award-winning musician who has been nominated three times for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize, the performer known as Shad takes the reins of the show after CBC managers were impressed by his ease in speaking with other artists during a week-long audition as a Q guest host in late January, Shad interviewed a range of artists including cartoonist Art Spiegelman, opera star Christine Goerke, filmmaker and author Miranda July and actress Evangeline Lilly.

We here at 4080 welcome him.  While Shad has never reached the market saturation he deserves, his albums have been incredible.  He’s a critical darling, and one who is a worthy successor to such an institution.

And I leave you with Rose Garden:
