CIOE-97.5 FM Needs Your Support
Jim Robson, Chairman

As Chairman of the Cobequid Radio Society, licensee of CIOE-97.5FM, I take great pride in the more than 97.5 hours of East Coast Music played along with our 68 hours of original musical and spoken-word programs produced weekly by our talented team of community volunteers in their efforts to inform, educate, stimulate and entertain listeners of all ages throughout the HRM and beyond.

CIOE, as a not-for-profit community radio station, is dependent on a variety of revenue streams including local retail advertising, semi-annual radio-thons, sponsorships and grant monies where and when they are available.

Another key financial component that is vital to CIOE in continuing and enhancing its local community programming initiatives, is the money realized from public donations.

As a listener to 97.5FM, you can play an important role in supporting and maintaining this unique, one-of-a-kind, local community broadcasting service, by personally donating to the station. Its easy, you can make a donation securely online from the website buttons below, either through a one time gift of any amount, or pledge an affordable amount each month over a period of one year or more on your credit card.

It is through your generosity and support that CIOE-97.5FM will continue its invaluable local broadcasting service throughout HRM and discover and promote East Coast artists and performers by giving them the on-air exposure they so richly deserve.
