Ottawa's New Country 94
Ottawa just got a little more country.
At high noon today Bell Media launched Ottawa’s New Country 94, a brand new radio station for the nation’s capital.
And it’s quite a launch. The first 10,000 songs will be commercial-free and announcer-free. You’ll find it at 93.9 on the FM dial.
“Country music is the hottest music right now,” says Dayna Bourgoin, Assistant Program Director. “It has the best artists, the highest grossing tours, highest selling albums. You’re going to hear Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, all the biggest and best artists.”
In addition to the commercial-free, announcer-free kick start, Ottawa’s New Country 94 also features $10,000 Mondays - a chance for listeners to win $10,000 with a single phone call. The station will also have more New Country concert tickets to give away for Ottawa’s hottest upcoming shows than any other radio station, launching right out of the gate with tickets for Eric Church (Nov. 15), Kira Isabella (Nov. 17), Dierks Bentley (Dec. 2), and Florida Georgia Line (Feb. 19).
“We’ve been surveying the needs and wants of local radio listeners for more than six months now, and Ottawa’s New Country 94 has a specific focus that fills a gap in the market today,” said Richard Gray, Regional Vice-President/General Manager, Radio/TV, Northern and Eastern Ontario/Maritimes, Bell Media. “This is a radio station that will appeal to listeners and advertisers alike with some of the hottest music out there today."
