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 Digital Content Producer, Barb Snelgrove has been helping with our social media is now our Promotion Director. Paul Stewart joins us as our Digital Sales Manager, Dave Dhillon Creative Director and Leslie Glaeser Traffic Manager and book keeper. We are still interviewing and searching for the rest of our team
New technical amendments have been filed with Industry Canada and the CRTC for technical amendments to our tower and transmitter plans and we are presently 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. Construction is nearly completed and we will soon be installing broadcast and production equipment. We are anticipating a launch sometime in the summer. In the meantime, if you’re interested in a career with us or - if you have any ideas that you'd like to share, please send me/us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
