No radio knowledge? You sure about that?
Screw-up radio across Canada? How so? Why is the assumption negative? If they, according to you, "have no radio knowledge", why do you automatically think it'll be a travesty among all radio?
And, why point specifically towards Montreal? What's the issue there?

Believe you me, there is PLENTY of knowledge within this company.

Re: Newcap sold...

Any time I've heard interviews with Newcap employees, I definitely get the impression the working conditions and atmosphere are superior to those of the big telcoms.  So I am crossing my fingers and hope conditions remain the same under the new ownership.

Oh no...what would this mean for Boom 97.3?

Newcap employees were always very happy.  I also like Stingray music service!

Re: Newcap sold...

sounds like they're keeping corporate management in place, so that will make for a relatively stable operating environment.... i hope.

Nothing. They'll know better than to mess with that cash-cow.

Thank-you Don.
Looks like Toronto's Move FM will also carry on business as usual.

"Looks like Toronto's Move FM will also carry on business as usual"

But under new leadership. Josie Fenech recentley became PD of Move FM. Josie Fenech aka Josie Geuer-long time PD and morning co-host of Hot 89.9 Ottawa. Josie has been in Toronto before as morning co-host with Scott Fox on Z103.5 and mid-days on Kiss 92.5 in it's original incarnation. It seems that she is going to PD both stations-a bit of a commute between Toronto and Ottawa. (Karen Steele is also PD at two stations Virgin 99.9 Toronto & Virgin 105.3 Kitchener-but they are only about 1.5 hours apart by car). I think Scot Turner is heading back to Kitchener.
