TORONTO, June 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Starting today, it's Sunday everyday in Southern Ontario as Astral Radio's FUNNY 820 and FUNNY 1410 invite you to tune in to the Sunday Funnies with Rick Hodge!

Seven days a week at noon and again at 11 pm, listeners in Southern Ontario, including the Greater Toronto area, will hear the best of standup comedy as compiled by radio legend Rick Hodge.

"I am thrilled to be back on radio and do what I love, which is to bring listeners to smile, laugh and occasionally crack a rib!" said Hodge.

"As Canada's first broadcaster to offer listeners a 24/7 comedy station, it was completely natural for us to bring Rick and his hilarious exclusive comedy content back on the air", said Mike Nabuurs, the Ambassador of FUNNY for FUNNY 820 and FUNNY 1410.
