Rotary Club of Cobourg shows their support for community radio

Northumberland 89.7 FM is pleased to announce today that the Rotary Club of Cobourg has made a donation to Northumberland 89.7 to assist with the purchase of a new broadcasting console. A cheque for $5,000 was presented to Barry Walker, Chair of Northumberland 89.7 FM and Kevin Stuart, Station Manager, by Rotary’s President Don Owen and Lynda Kay.

The broadcasting console is a vital part of the studio. Everything you hear on the air coming from our station goes through this console. The existing equipment is almost six years old and has served us well. The new equipment will provide a greater capacity and flexibility that is needed, given the changing demands of today’s radio business.

Mr. Walker said “We are extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Cobourg for this donation. Not only has this donation helped us attain our fundraising goal for the project, it also makes us proud that Northumberland 89.7 has the confidence of the Rotary Club of Cobourg to continue our work as a major source of news, information and entertainment in Northumberland County.”
