For Immediate Release:
have microphone, will travel
Eastman Media of Beausejour, Manitoba is pleased to announce the creation of a new FM Radio service named Town Radio Beausejour to service Beausejour and the surround area. It’s focus is community building through promoting local not-for-profit organizations and special events.
Compared to typical radio stations, Town Radio Beausejour is quite different . It will operate under a non-commercial permit, funded by local area Sponsors, who receive airings of a customizable message in thanks for their sponsorship.
Town Radio Beausejour will play a variety of music genres, and will focus on local music, and music not generally heard on the radio. Radio shows will be 100% locally produced. Participation from the public will be strongly encouraged and facilitated. In addition to music, some ‘talk radio’ will be heard, also locally produced.
With the clear mandate of community building, Town Radio Beausejour will work with a variety of ‘Hosts’, originating broadcasts from their location. The title of the this announcement is ‘have microphone, will travel’ for a reason. Once or twice a month, Town Radio Beausejour will relocate to a new location to continue broadcasting. For the duration of each of these broadcast periods, typically about 3 weeks long, the ‘Host’ organization will be the primary organization or special event promoted.
We’re not on the air yet, but launch day is coming soon. Be sure to watch for our announcement when we’re assigned our frequency and will begin broadcasting. If you are involved with a local organization or special event, and wish to arrange being a Host, or if you’re a local area business, and wish to be a Sponsor for Town Radio Beausejour, please contact Lane Robinson at Eastman Media.
