On Air

Mark Andrews

I've been host of the CJAR Morning Wake-Up and the evening Country Show for over ...wait, what?...yup, it's actually been over a decade now. And I've loved every minute of it! One of the biggest changes in that time has been a total revamping of our identity as a local station playing "Today's Hits and Yesterday's Favorites" as CJ 1240 on the AM band to our new image, " YOUR RADIO" and the addition of YOUR RADIO 102.9 CJAR FM for our listeners on November 27, 2013. Arctic Radio owner and CEO Tom O'Brien explained it to me like this, "It's not about the music (although it certainly is important that we play a bit of the best hits for our listeners of all ages). It's really more about what happens between the music that we need to focus on. We need to be local, local, local. This station is about the people that we serve in the community. That's why we chose the slogan YOUR RADIO". And I really like that! I've met so many wonderful people in this community since I've been here and I'm so grateful that Arctic Radio has allowed me share their microphones with you. I've got the word out about things from local churches, the Royal Canadian Legion, The Pas Regional Library, town government and OCN band council news to bigger fundraisers for international organizations like Kin Canada and Rotary as well as one of the biggest outdoor festivals in the country, the Northern Manitoba Trappers Festival. It's also been a priority to make sure that your day starts with a smile and maybe a chuckle or two. I sure hope I've succeeded at that. I hope to be able to continue to do these things and more for many years to come. From day one, I've invited guests from the community to come in and share your stories with us. Please do. If you have anything that you'd like to share with our listeners, call me at (204) 623-5307 to set up an on-air chat. The coffee's always on. Remember, we are YOUR RADIO Station.
