Voice of the Pontiac
Ottawa Citizen - Ontario, Canada
Not bad for a bilingual community radio station with a signal that barely

It's an oasis on the FM dial, located at 101.7, that to its listeners is
the source for community news, discussions and a playlist dictated
directly by listeners -- in real time.


The radio station, located in a modest three-year-old building on the
outskirts of Fort-Coulonge and billed as the "Voice of the Pontiac," next
month celebrates an impressive 28 years of broadcasting. Bertrand, though
he has twice answered the lure of better-paying work "in the city" (i.e.,
Ottawa), first sat behind the microphone in the station's original
location -- the second-floor of a former schoolhouse -- 20 years ago.
