My Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) has applied to the CRTC for a NEW FM service for St. Thomas
and area. MBC is a small, independent broadcasting company that specializes in small market radio
stations in Ontario. Currently, it serves the towns of Strathroy, Exeter, Goderich, Kincardine, Brighton,
Napanee, Renfrew, Pembroke and Arnprior under the brand of myFM. You can listen `on-line’ to any
one of these stations by going to www.myfmradio.ca, click on one of the towns then click the `listen
live’ button at the top.
The NEW FM for St. Thomas will provide dedicated local news, weather, sports and community events
along with various specialty programming. The music will be a unique mix including artists such as:
Elton John, Bryan Adams, Melissa Ethridge, Shania Twain, Blue Rodeo, Fergie, Rod Stewart, Chicago,
Lionel Richie, Tom Cochrane, Maroon Five, etc.
It is anticipated that there will be a decision by the CRTC on this application by the end of October,
2010. If approved, MBC will then have up to two years to get the station on-the-air; however, it is likely
to be launched by the fall of 2011.
Port Stanley to Lambeth, Shedden to Kingsmill and all points in between.
