Chair’s Message

As Chairman of Cobequid Radio Society, I am pleased to welcome all listeners to CIOE-97.5 FM’s exciting new user – friendly website.

In keeping with CIOE’s ongoing efforts to create and deliver unique musical and insightful community based spoken word programming, the new website is designed to inform, educate, stimulate and entertain our local over-the-air listenership and the more than 620,000 global listeners via live streaming on the internet.

With over 110 hours per week of East Coast Music and intelligent talk/spoken word programming directly relevant to Nova Scotians, CIOE is both the home and the voice of East Coast Music and the many diverse communities that we are privileged to serve.

We invite you to visit the profiles of our talented and dedicated programming hosts and discover what motivates them to give so freely of their time and energy and creativity. Spend some time learning about CIOE’s management team and the challenges we face in today’s difficult social and economic environment to keep the not-for-profit station on the air and moving forward.

CIOE especially encourages you, the listening public, to take advantage of the Suggestion Box feature and let us know how you feel about our programming. We are interested in hearing both your positive and constructive criticism of our musical and spoken word programming. CIOE is volunteer driven so we are always open to new persons wanting to get involved in programming, production, sales and marketing or other areas of interest.

Enjoy CIOE’s new and improved web site
