Winnipeg's Fresh 99.1 is now Peggy@99.1

Postby radiofan » Mon Dec 26, 2016 9:19 am

On Christmas Day Winnipeg's 99.1 Fresh FM [CJGV] flipped to a Hot A/C- 80's based gold format and a new identity. Peggy@99.1 hit the airwaves with the tagline "Feel Good Winnipeg".
There was speculation that Corus would reformat the station as BOOM-FM.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

That speculation was really just initiated by a single poster on the other board. Boom is essentially the same format as BIG, which they just bailed from. Also, they don't own the name.

A dumpster fire of marketing to warm the alleycats of a frozen Winnipeg night.

I'm guessing they're trying to return to their Fresh roots but yeah, the 80's are already covered by BOB FM AND 94.3 the Drive. Why not try a FAB reboot? That seemed to work before. They just need a big enough library to bring people back.

WINNIPEG — As announced earlier this month, a well known name in Winnipeg radio, is coming back to the airwaves later this month.

Samantha Stevens will be co-hosting Feel Good Mornings with Sam and Travis on Peggy 99.1.

On Saturday she was with her new colleagues getting set for her March 20 debut with a photo shoot.

You might remember Samantha from her time at QX Country in Winnipeg before she went over to Calgary.

Travis Stewart will be joining Samantha on the show as her co-host. He comes to Winnipeg from his previous job in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
