Haliburton Broadcasting Group (now owned by Vista Broadcasting) owned 24 Ontario radio stations. kowchmedia hosted a news workshop for its anchors from across Ontario. We also conducted a series of one on one aircheck sessions with their anchors. Among the topics discussed during the five hour workshop included breaking news coverage, how to share news stories with other Haliburton stations, the use of audio clips in newscasts, how to do interviews, how to tell stories, how to speak on the radio, understanding media code of ethics to stay out of trouble, how to use the internet as a tip service - not as a legitimate news source and the importance of writing news stories of interest to listeners of different music formats. We also discussed chasing their dream for a successful radio career.
kowchmedia worked with Montreal's Tietolman Tetrault Pancholy Media on its applications to the CRTC for two news talk radio stations in Montreal and for Toronto's last FM license, 88.1FM. The Montreal application was for a French language talk radio license and an English language talk radio license. The TTP Media presentation earned high praise from CRTC commissioners. We were successful in winning the French language license for 940AM. In September the CRTC processed the TTP application at a non-appearance hearing for an English talk station on the heritage 600 AM frequency in Montreal. In November the CRTC awarded TTP Media the license for 600AM. Both stations are expected to be on air in Spring 2013. In May, TTP Media appeared before the CRTC to apply for 88.1FM to launch Toronto's first private FM talk radio station. More than 20 applications were looked at. The CRTC decided the format should be music and not talk on the FM band. TTP Media is now looking at other Canadian cities to expand its radio operations.
