Surrey is getting another radio station

A new radio station is coming to Surrey, after the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) granted a licence to South Fraser Broadcasting Inc.

The English-speaking station will operate at 107.7 on the FM dial, and boasts an adult-contemporary format.

A news release sent out Wednesday states it will have a strong emphasis on Surrey news, sports and weather and will include community outreach.

Station president Suki Badh thanked many for their support, including the South Surrey Chamber of Commerce, the Surrey Foundation, and Coun. Tom Gill, who came in support of the proposal.

The new station has promised to provide $100,000 each year for the development of Canadian talent, including journalism scholarships, support to the Envision Jazz Festival, Canada Day festivities and the Fusion Festival.
