As I’ve said verbally and in writing probably a thousand times, you only get to do a Grand Opening once (hopefully ☺)…so do it well, make some noise and make it memorable. For those who do not know, I had a non-compete with Vista Radio since my departure as Director of Sales for the Moose FM clan of stations since March /April 2013.
While allowed to operate my North45 Communications Ad Agency, I could not, of course work for a competitor of the many Moosers in the northern regions of Ontario. So it was, that I became acquainted with Jeff Carter who had sold his SureNet Internet business to manage and broadcast a full time gig operating a successful on line radio station Hunters Bay Radio ( Muskoka Online).
Awarded a Community Radio license from the CRTC , Jeff and partners officially launched the station at 88.7 on the FM dial May 15th. A fun nite at the Huntsville Theatre where many people spoke and more bands played live as a tribute to Jeff’s local efforts to make his community proud. I predict this to be one of Canada’s finest Community stations. Give it a listen, on the dial or on line ☺.
