Tell Us What You Want To Hear On Air, As
Preparations Begin For Local Call-In Shows On Matters Of Local Importance, Faith & Family...

FM 90.5 is preparing to introduce local call-in and other talk programming on local matters of public importance, faith and family.

      Tell Us What Topics You Want To Hear On Air -

In addition to the issues that Peterborough wants to talk about, you'll be inspired as Peterborough people share their own stories about how Jesus Christ has helped them successfully deal with faith, family and relationship issues such as how to get along with your spouse, raising your kids without tearing your hair out, overcoming adversity and finding greater purpose in life.

You'll also find inspiration, hope and comfort with uplifting Christian talk and bible teaching programs through the day.

Clubs and service organizations now representing more than 17,007 citizens in the City of Peterborough and immediate surrounding area, have registered with FM 90.5 to earn their share of $20,000 in cash awards for their treasuries by shopping at local merchants.  See details for the FM 90.5 Community Club Awards.

October  & November 2010
Station Began
Test Signal Broadcasting

Greetings From Andy McNabb, CEO - McNabb Broadcasting/FM 90.5 
(full text originally published Oct. 2010 when the station's test signal launched - edited for brevity on Dec. 17, 2010)
Thanks Be To God, With Whom "All Things Are Possible" (Matt 19:26)

FM 90.5 began test signal broadcasting at 4:05 pm, Thurs. Oct. 14, 2010, featuring "Stronger" by Hillsong:  


Sam McKnight of McKnight’s Fine Flowers and Gifts gently told me in the summer of 2010 that “there will be challenges, but that’s okay…there will be setbacks, but that’s okay”.  I admired his patience, but I didn’t think I’d need it.


The Great Adventure
Little did I know that we would lose our dearly loved Vice-President, Don Currie, in a continuing leave of absence due to family health challenges, or that there would be five separate transmitter site installation windows that got postponed due to circumstances beyond anybody’s control – including having to switch towers, multiple lightning storm days, and the death of our master contractor’s wife – that caused a total reallocation of the resources of time, people and money, and replacing and rescheduling up to 10 people’s crews to get the job done.  


Yet God is working all things together for good, and we’re now on the air.

With Thanks To You!
Many thanks for your support, your patience, your prayers, and your encouragement in coming alongside us for this journey.  May we be at least as much a blessing to you, as you and your relationships are to us.

And the great adventure is just beginning.  We look forward to serving you - always feel free to tell us what you want your local radio station to do to meet your listening needs and how we can best meet the needs of the people of Peterborough and area.

May God bless you and prosper you,

Andy McNabb

Mission Statement For FM 90.5
Connect, inform and inspire the people of Peterborough.  

That means give them a voice.  Deliver local news every hour, plus local call-in talk shows, plus Christian faith and family talk programs. 

Rationale For FM 90.5
1.  Peterborough wants compelling, intensely local news every hour and local, call-in talk shows every day  that connects people to each other, that informs them about what's going on, establishes common ground, builds understanding and catalyzes people to take greater action in community endeavours.

2.  Peterborough is one of the highest-churched areas per capita in all of Canada - 35% more churches per capita than the rest of the country. 

3.  The church is local, therefore it needs a local voice - the station will reflect local interests, giving local people a platform to contribute on matters of faith and family.
