For several years unrelated groups of people in Prince Edward County have been discussing the value of setting up a non-for-profit FM radio station to serve our community.

Earlier this year, a group of County residents got the ball rolling by traveling to neighboring Amherst Island to learn about the experience of setting up their community radio station.

Things finally came together in June 2011 when more than a dozen people from various backgrounds got together to discuss the idea. The conclusion from the meeting was a resounding “yes, let’s proceed”.

Since then, a working group consisting of Conrad Beaubien, Gary Mooney, Rick Conroy and Treat Hull have been meeting regularly to move forward with the planning process which will culminate in a formal kickoff meeting in September.
