    CHUM Radio buys Toronto's New Flow 93.5 FM from Milestone

    CHUM Radio buys Toronto's New Flow 93.5 FM from Milestone - Winnipeg Free Press

    TORONTO - CTV-owned CHUM Radio is buying Toronto radio station New Flow 93.5 FM from Milestone Radio Inc. for undisclosed amount.

    CHUM said Wednesday that FLOW, which launched in February 2001 as Canada's first urban music station, "has established itself in Toronto as a leader in delivering unique urban programming with a focus on discovering and promoting local artists."

    "Flow has done a great job carving out a niche in the Canadian radio landscape providing unique opportunities to artists, listeners and advertisers," CHUM president Chris Gordon said in a statement.

    "We value the contributions FLOW has made to promote and develop new Canadian artists, and we look forward to working with their team to grow the station and continue to service the community in Toronto."

    The sale requires regulatory approval.

    CHUM is a division of CTV Ltd., itself part of the CTVglobemedia family of media properties. It operates 34 radio stations in 16 markets across Canada.

    It was the third radio station deal in recent days, following an announcement Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI.B) Tuesday that it is preparing to buy Bounce FM in Edmonton and on Monday that it would buy BOB-FM in London, Ont., both from CTV.

    Rogers operates 13 radio stations in Alberta, and a total of 53 radio stations across the country on both the AM and FM dial.

    Barrie Caribfest is looking for Volunteers

    The Caribbean festival (Caribfest) 2010 will be held at Centennial Park August 13th, 14th and 15th. Putting together an event such as Caribfest would not be possible without the dedication of many volunteers. We are looking for people to join the volunteer team and come experience the Caribbean as they contribute to the development of the city. We need volunteers in all area of the event’s operation. Volunteering at Caribfest is also a great opportunity to develop your resume, learn new skills and meet new people!

    Being a volunteer has many perks such as getting free access to world-known Caribbean artists, complimentary authentic Caribbean cuisine, and a volunteer thank you barbeque after the event. This is also a perfect opportunity for area high school students to get their volunteer hours while gaining a greater appreciation of different cultures and having fun. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the volunteer coordinator, Heidi Hoell, at volunteer@caribfest.ca or 705-252-6822 or message me on facebook!
