Kowchmedia To Develop & Coach New On Air Talent At Radio That Doesn’t Suck.com And Talk-Radio.ca
Montreal QC

“This is an exciting opportunity for kowchmedia to work with online radio talent and podcasters heard around the world on RTDS.ca and Talk-Radio.ca I look forward to working with the new generation of online radio and podcasting talent to help them chase their dream to have a successful career as broadcasters,” says kowchmedia President Steve Kowch.

There are a dozen hosts on Radio That Doesn’t Suck who play the music they choose with an eye to deeper tracks, undiscovered artists and musical eras that are underplayed on traditional FM radio. It’s sister station, Listen Up! Talk Radio is home to a half dozen talk shows and six podcasts. Hosts discuss the issues of the day without being dismissive or disrespectful.
Todd Miller, President of RTDS.

Todd Miller

“Welcome to the brave new world of talk radio,” says Todd Miller, president of RTDS that owns Listen Up! Talk Radio. “We look forward to having Steve Kowch share his expertise with our on air talent at both radio stations. Steve Kowch is one of Canada’s leading on air talent coaches who has worked with some of the biggest names in Canadian broadcasting while program director at Newstalk 1010 in Toronto and CJAD in Montreal.”

“At RTDS we unofficially call ourselves a music discovery service,” Miller says and goes on to note the similarity to Spotify or Pandora except with DJs to introduce the tracks and add a human touch to their selection.

“The RTDS format is inline with kowchmedia’s philosophy that DJs need to be given more time to talk between songs to return personality back to music radio,” says Kowch. “What we do at kowchmedia is mentor music radio hosts how to tell stories to connect with their listeners.”

“What attracted us to kowchmedia is Steve’s philosophy about story telling. You just need to read his On The Kowch blog to understand where he comes from and why he has been so successful coaching people in radio to tell great stories,” says Miller.

Corus Entertainment’s Syndicated Radio Series, The Legends of Classic Rock, Added to FlinkTO’s Storytelling Platform
Toronto ON

FlinkTO, the crowdsourced publishing platform for the ‘totally obsessed SuperFan’ and Corus Entertainment Inc., a leading media and entertainment company, today announced another global content and promotional partnership agreement that will now see a growing selection of past and new episodes of The Legends of Classic Rock, a nationally syndicated radio program, added to FlinkTO’s storytelling platform.

The Legends of Classic Rock follows The Ongoing History of New Music to become the second Corus-owned radio program to have its content adapted for fans on FlinkTO. Now SuperFans of classic rock can engage with first-class content in an exclusive community of diehard fans (known as a “flink”). Not only can they earn status simply for sharing their obsession with classic rock, but they become part of The Greatest Story of Music Ever Told by contributing their voices.

FlinkTO’s The Greatest Story of Music Ever Told is the most comprehensive, ambitious and interactive narrative on modern music history, across all music genres, ever undertaken. Corus’ The Ongoing History of New Music and now, The Legends of Classic Rock, are an integral part of this project for the alternative & indie rock and classic rock genres, respectively.

Hosted by legendary radio personality Jeff Woods and produced by Corus Entertainment, The Legends of Classic Rock is a unique radio program that gives fans the stories about the music that defined a generation. A genuine music fanatic, Woods brings his audiences epic interviews with the ‘”who’s who” of classic rock, deep tracks, and live recordings that give context and breathe new life into some of the greatest music ever written. Released twice a month, Legends features will include audio files and adapted transcripts from episodes that will be further enhanced with exclusive content such as video interviews and bonus audio clips with Woods.

“Finally, rock and roll fans around the world have an incredible space to share their passion and add their voices to amazing stories on the music they worship,” said Jeff Woods, host at Toronto’s Rock, Q107. “This is so much bigger than the show. It’s a groundbreaking opportunity for fans to come together and create music history—to show the world the impact classic rock has on the evolution of modern music.”

Exclusive to The Legends of Classic Rock flink, Woods will also host New from the Vault, a weekly segment that will uncover new tracks from the classic rock vault that never saw the light of day as well as b-sides, unreleased and rare versions of famous tracks. Fans will have the opportunity to hear his take, listen to the music and sound off through contributions to the weekly story.

“There’s no one more qualified than the legendary Jeff Woods to lead and rally fans around this ambitious endeavour for classic rock,” said Nathalia Ribeiro, vice president and project manager for music at FlinkTO. “It’s all about putting the classic rock genre; the bands, the events and the industry as a whole into context to create, “The Greatest Story of Music Ever Told”. Classic rock is one very important chapter of this interactive story. We know the fans will be our greatest storytellers and we’re rewarding them in exciting ways for their contributions to history in the making.”

“Corus is excited to be partnering with FlinkTO in creating, what will surely be, the ultimate living encyclopedia on music in a way that’s never been done before,” said Chris Pandoff, President, Corus Radio. “Having two of Corus’ syndicated series featured on FlinkTO is a testament to the unique and inspiring radio programming that has resonated with our listeners over the years and we now have a way to transform this legacy content into living content through this great storytelling platform.”

Subscribers to The Legends of Classic Rock flink on FlinkTO can begin contributing their expertise to stories immediately and earn status. SuperFans will rise up the flink’s leaderboard based on votes to their contributions. Also, anyone who successfully promotes the flink has the opportunity to earn a share of the flink’s revenue.

New Funding Program For Radio Stations
Ottawa ON

YOUTH TAKE HOLD OF THE MIC!
The CRFC launches a training grant pilot program

Ottawa – Campus and community radio exists thanks to the commitment and participation of members of their communities. To emphasize this essential role and highlight the importance of youth in this media, the CRFC has decided to put into effect a pilot program called Youth on Air! This program will offer youth a unique radio experience by means of training grants.

“We are constantly searching for ways to stimulate the sector and youth represents the future of community radio. With the program Youth on the Air!, we hope to turn their interests into passions,” says CRFC's President Roger Ouellette.

Youth on the Air! is geared towards campus and community radios interested in working with young Canadians in search of training, education and mentorship opportunities. The program’s goal is to foster radio talent and, consequently, strengthen stations’ capacities and productivity. Stations will be able to apply for funding up to a maximum of $10,000.

Youth on the Air! is a continuation of the first two programs previously offered by the CRFC: the Radio Talent Development Program and the Youth Internship Program. “Several stations have indicated their interest in continuing to offer internships. We have decided to listen to them by proposing a simplified program where each station will have the freedom to develop projects that meet their needs,” adds Jean Malavoy, CRFC's Executive Director.

Guidelines and application form for the Youth on the Air! program can be found on our website at: Application Materials.

Stations have until March 31, 2015 to submit their funding application.

The funding for Youth on the Air! is provided by Canada’s private radio broadcasters through their Canadian Content Development (CCD) contributions, a funding mechanism established by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). These contributions play an important part in the success of the Canadian radio broadcasting system’s community sector.

The Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) is the national not-for-profit funding entity responsible for the growth and sustainability of the community and campus radio sector. More than 175 radio stations across Canada make up the community-owned, volunteer-driven sector of Canadian radio broadcasting. The CRFC helps develop and strengthen this vital radio broadcasting sector to ensure local, public-access radio for Canadian communities.
