Kincardine’s local radio station, the former myFM, has announced it has undergone a change in ownership, and with that will establish a new brand.
As of Sept. 1, the station known as Shoreline Oldies, will become Shoreline Classics, which Lakeshore Radio Broadcasting vice president of operations, Nick Cadotte says will focus on classic rock that “is a little more depth, a little more B side” than it was known for in the past.
The station, with offices in Kincardine, Port Elgin, Goderich, Listowel, Chatham Kent and Temiskaming, will keep the public informed with regular reports of local news, weather and sports coverage.
“Our sister stations, CKXS in Wallaceburg and The Ranch in Listowel, have grown to become beacons of the great people that make up both tight knit communities,” said Cadotte. “We strive for the same in Huron and Bruce Counties.”
The radio station on Queen Street will now be staffed with announcers in the building, and plan to support local content with a live morning show.
“Shoreline Classics is here to become an integral part of the Kincardine, Goderich, Port Elgin and surrounding communities,” said Cadotte. “We love to give back and aim to support all of the local charitable efforts and causes throughout the communities.”
