Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

Banff, Alberta, February 23, 2015 -- As part of The Banff Centre’s content dissemination mandate it will be commencing an ongoing podcast strategy which will capture and make available much of the material produced at The Centre. As part of this evolution The Banff Centre will be releasing its licenses for its current radio stations 101.1 and 103,3 FM and will begin migrating many of the shows produced for Banff Centre Radio to be exclusively digital, in line with The Centre podcasting strategy.

“101.1 and 103,3 allowed us to share some of the richness of Banff National Park and its community,” commented Carolyn Warren, vice-president arts. “We are looking forward to continuing to work with community members as part of our content strategy to take the works made in Banff and share them with the world.”

You can expect to see select Banff Centre Radio Shows and new shows regularly available as podcasts on Banffcentre.ca in the coming months. The final Rocky Mountain Morning Show will air live on February 27 at 8 a.m. MST. 101.1 and 103,3 will remain on air after February 27 broadcasting previously recorded shows until our application for revocation with the CRTC is approved.
