Ontario Morning is a Canadian radio program, which airs as the CBC Radio One local morning program for non-metropolitan markets in Southern Ontario.[1] While the network's main stations in Toronto, Ottawa, Waterloo Region, Windsor and London each produce their own city-oriented morning programs, nearly all Radio One rebroadcasters in smaller markets air Ontario Morning in place of their host station's program.[2]

The program is produced from the studios of CBLA-FM at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre in Toronto, although it does not air on that station's primary transmitter in Toronto.[1]

The program's current host is Wei Chen.[3] Past hosts have included Sue Prestedge,[4] Jane Hawtin, Joe Coté,[5] Avril Benoit, Dave Seglins, Erika Ritter,[6] Lorne Saxberg[1] and Martina Fitzgerald.
