Gold Winner CBC Radio One, 90.5 FM
Silver Winner Live 105, 105.1 FM
Bronze Winner CKDU, 88.1 FM We’ve long come to expect quality national programming from the Ceeb, from excellent newscasts to interesting shows that respect listeners’ intelligence. But what makes 90.5 shine is the fine local programming produced right here in Halifax. There’s Information Morning, featuring a weekly visit from The Coast’s Tara Thorne. Engaging interviewer and former Coast editor Steph Domet hosts the marathon three-hour Mainstreet. And Stan Carew, who once was walloped by an irate listener with a rolled-up copy of The Coast, hosts the definitive Maritime music show, Weekend Mornings. Do you see a common theme here?
