Is Heather B Terry D's new CHOM sidekick?

Terry DiMonte officially returns to the CHOM FM morning show on Monday morning and while there is no official word as to who will be his on air sidekick, the rumours I am hearing lead to Heather Backman (affectionately known as Heather B) leaving her current post with a Q104 in Cleveland to join Montreal's Spirit of Rock 97.7.

This would be an interesting move, given the fact she gave up a pretty popular afternoon show gig here on Virgin Radio just under a year ago. A native of NDG, Heather  has also spent time as the midday host at WSTZ in Jackson, Mississippi, WKXJ in Chattanooga, Tennessee and afternoon drive at WMXF in Chattanooga.

Here is a look at Heather B at the Grammy Awards last year. I think she would be a good fit with Terry. However, I am also very fond of current co-host Chantal Desjardins.

Update: It has now been confirmed that Heather B will become Terry's co-host as of January 16.
