Only months after the CRTC gave the green light for a new transmitter site, listeners from the West Island to Hudson can enjoy the easy listening sounds of Evanov Communication’s Jewel 106.7 on the FM dial.
Evanov owns six stations in Ontario and one in Winnipeg under the Jewel brand. The new radio station broadcasts English-language soft adult contemporary/easy listening music from artists such as Micheal Bublé, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Barbara Streisand.
The Hudson station at 1,420 watts covers the western off-island area, plus adjacent areas like Oka, the West Island and Île Perrot. The new station is the second Quebec station for Evanov Communications Inc.
Evanov’s Radio Fierté on AM 980 is the world’s only French language commercial radio service dedicated to Montreal’s LGBT community. Fierté with its vast signal will encompass the greater Montreal area and beyond. Programming includes a mix of today’s hits along with Disco and Techno sounds.
The two new Quebec stations bring Evanov Communications to a total of 15 stations across Canada bringing them closer to a mid-size independent broadcaster.
