After nearly 4 1/2 years of broadcasting online, Hunters Bay Radio was approved by the CRTC to operate an FM radio station providing Community Programming to Huntsville and surrounding communities at 88.7mhz. Our listeners have told us that they wanted to be able to listen everywhere and not be limited to an internet connection. The license allows HBR to fill a void in the local media by providing local news, commentary, and community programming as well as a great variety of music featuring local, independent music with a focus on genres that don’t get airplay on commercial radio.
HBR is a not-for-profit service and is staffed by a great group of volunteers and a few staff, who bring a passion for the music and topics that are of interest to them and the community. We have over 45 people bringing you relevant programming each week and are always looking for volunteers to get involved in the station.
While we undergo a period of significant change and growth, we have no plans to abandon our internet technologies, and will continue to embrace the future that will be brought as the internet continues to morph into the dominant media distribution method of the future. We flipped the switch on our FM Transmitter on May 15th, 2014 and are broadcasting to Muskoka and the Almaguin Highlands and are the fastest growing radio station in the area!
