Now comes news that CTV entertainment guru Mose Persico, will make his 105.1 MIKE FM radio debut on Monday, February 11, with daily appearances on Patsikakis' popular drive home, leading up to Mose's World, Persico's own 30 minutes culture and entertainment show, airing each Friday at 6 p.m.
From 2001 to 2008, Persico became the cultural voice of CTV as co-host of Entertainment Spotlight, a half-hour television show, covering a potpourri of entertainment related news, from lifestyle to fashion, leisure, music and food. Viewers will still be able to follow Mose at the Movies, Persico’s popular weekly film capsules, as well as his Sunday night movie segment on CTV.
As publicist extraordinaire Leeja Murphy tells us, Persico's new MIKE FM show and drive-home segments will keep listeners at the forefront of local and international entertainment news, with his trademark mix of blockbuster events and intimate, yet equally relevant, Montreal stories.
Born in Sorrento, Naples, Persico immigrated to Canada in 1965 aboard the ship Cristoforo Colombo with his parents and two sisters. He is a graduate of Cardinal Newman High School, Champlain Regional College, and Concordia University, where he received a BA in Communication Studies with a minor in Broadcast Journalism.
