Retour à la normale!
CFMF 103.1 FM Fermont, Que.
This project will bring back a second resource to the station in order to improve local programming. One host is good, but two is better! The station wants to offer its audience everything that they have a right to expect from their community station: varied and quality hosting, local information, a varied high quality musical programming, and a presence among the community. With this project the station wants to re-hire the host and musical director that had to be let go. With two employees the station will be able to offer everything that is described here and develop new projects in order to revive CFMF!
Concretely, the station would like to improve its programming by adding more hosting: hosting of a Weekend Top 30 (French and English countdowns); the new resource will lead the drive-home show (currently the same person hosts two daily shows); improve local information by divvying up the work.
The station also wants to improve its musical programming by having a resource dedicated to it. The resource will be able to program the automation software in order to offer more variety to the listeners. This resource will also have the responsibility of following up with record companies to ensure that CFMF takes advantage of all the newest music.

We will work with the student councils of every school. In each episode special guests from the community and different backgrounds and ages will join the youths in order to encourage a rich intergenerational discussion. The youths will actively participate to the creation of the content, to the themes and subjects for the round table, to the choice of guests, and to the issues that will be discussed.
The show will serve as a reference designed by and for youths. We hope to show the importance of letting youths express themselves, of listening to them, and of working with them to build a better life within our community, where everyone has his or her place and, above all, something to share with the rest of the world. In addition, we will invite an emerging group of music, a stand-up comic, and a DJ to every show.
