Classic rock DJ Terry DiMonte leaves Q107 for Montreal

Terry DiMonte, known to Calgary radio listeners as the morning man on classic-rock station Q107 FM, is heading back to his longtime home in Montreal. DiMonte made headlines in 2007 when he left his gig at CHOM-FM in Montreal -a city where he was regarded as an institution after 23 years on the air -to take a job at Q107.
DiMonte was lured to the Calgary station with a guaranteed five-year contract (which saw him earning a rumoured $450,000 a year). It was a big investment that perhaps didn't pay off for Corus Radio, the company that owns Q107, as that stayed a middle ranking station in the local ratings, by and large.
