Bill Carroll is fairly convinced that ‘Ian from Etobicoke’ was actually a familiar fella
Bill Carroll, who hosts afternoon drive from Los Angeles on Toronto talk radio station AM640, was quite confident that a passionate defender of Mayor Rob Ford — who identified himself as “Ian from Etobicoke” — was actually Ford himself.
“This guy, if he’s not the mayor, he could play one on the radio,” Carroll said to his on-air colleague Jeff MacArthur as they reviewed the drama that surrounded the mayor on Halloween.
Carroll said he was “90 to 95 per cent” certain that the voice, arguing against the incriminating nature of the “crack video” now seized by police, belonged to Ford based years of interviewing and listening to the embattled mayor — and enough experience to have a hunch when somebody is attempting to fake their audible identity by deepening their voice.
“I’ve spent my entire career listening to voices, editing tape, interviewing people,” said Carroll. “I’m almost like a blind guy.”
