Metro Morning is CBC Radio One's local morning program in Toronto, airing on CBLA-FM and is hosted by Matt Galloway. The program airs from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. weekday mornings.

The program has frequently been Toronto's highest-rated radio program in its timeslot.[1]

Metro Morning does not air on most of CBLA's rebroadcast transmitters outside of Toronto, which air the separate program Ontario Morning instead. However Metro Morning was broadcast on the Paris, Ontario transmitter CBLA-FM-2 (serving the Waterloo Region) until the start of that region's local morning programming, Morning Edition, on March 11, 2013.

Metro Morning premiered in 1973 with the name Tomorrow Is Here.[2] It was renamed Metro Morning in 1974.[3] For its first two decades, it was broadcast from CBC Radio's former Cabbagetown studio at 509 Parliament Street, which had formerly been a theatre. Among the inhabitants was Tuffy the cat, a stray who became a fan favourite and was considered a member of the Metro Morning team. "He lived at the station for 16 years, greeting guests, sitting on scripts and even receiving his own fan mail".[4]
