proud-fm named top toronto radio station


The Pride of Toronto 103.9 PROUD FM is pleased to announce that it has been named “Best Radio Station” by the reader’s of Xtra! Magazine in their annual “readers poll” edition, set to hit the stands Thursday September 10th, 2009.

In addition to the “Best Radio Station” award, morning show host Deb Pearce was also named “Best Radio DJ” this year.

“This is a huge step in the growth of the radio station” says Program Director Bob Willette, “With this recognition, not only have we established PROUD FM as Toronto’s official voice of the Queer community, we have also become an excellent alternative to mainstream radio”.

About PROUD FM: The Pride of Toronto, 103.9 PROUD-FM is the world’s first and only commercial radio station whose mandate is to serve the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. Owned and operated by Dufferin Communications Inc. PROUD-FM has been on the air officially since April 2007. The music selection is an eclectic mix of sounds from current pop hits to club anthems and classics from the 70s, 80s and 90s…we like to call it “Feel Good Music”. Above and beyond great music and variety, what distinguishes PROUD-FM from other radio stations is its spoken word, which is delivered from a unique, inclusive perspective about and for the LGBT community. Start your day with the irreverent humour of Breakfast in Bed with Patrick and Deb. Then, Mid Day Host, comedian Richard Ryder takes you through the rest of the AM into the afternoon with fun e-mails and interesting features, until 3pm when The Shaun Proulx Show takes over. The “SPS” as it is known, is an eclectic mix of great music, LGBT news, ahead of the curve topics, and off the cuff banter between Shaun Proulx and PROUD FM Entertainment Director Mark Wigmore. Once the evening sets in, world renowned DJ/Producer Cajjmere Wray spins the hottest, freshest club music into the wee hours of the morning. PROUD FM is radio for the queer and the curious, PROUD FM is for you!
