Thank you for dropping by our temporary website.
On August 6th, 2014 the CRTC granted our team approval to build a new a low-power Specialty radio station in Vancouver broadcasting at 98.3 FM. It will be mostly "urban" talk and spoken word with a little bit of music.
Thanks to your support we were able to show the Commission that a radio station that brought communities and people together to talk and share our interests and experiences is needed in the City of Vancouver. We can’t thank you enough for all the phone calls and well wishes that we continue to receive from all over the city.
We've been keeping busy building our new studios on Alexander Street in Railtown, securing a home for our transmitter and walking the streets of Vancouver meeting as many people, community groups and businesses to make sure we get it right. Tracey Friesen is our our Director of Programming , Monique McQueen is our Digital Content Producer and developing our new website while Barb Snelgrove (Megamouth Media) is helping us with our social media platforms.
We needed to find a new antenna site and City of Vancouver staff at all levels have been helpful securing a new location at 666 Burrard Street. New technical amendments have been filed with Industry Canada and the CRTC and we are now waiting for their approval prior to building out the site and going to air.
As you can imagine there are many things that need to be done between now and when we turn the power on to Vancouver’s newest radio station. We have already begun working on many of them and we are anticipating a launch sometime this summer. In the meantime, if you’re interested in a career with us on air, creative, content production, news, administration, video, traffic or - if you have any ideas that you'd like to share, please send me/us a note at email@example.com
I would like to thank you for dropping by to see us. Please be sure to visit us on other social media sites. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to meet and hang out at one of the many local events Roundhouse Radio will be joining in. Perhaps you might even stop by to tell us your story.
