At first I was afraid they were sold to a big company like Corus or Rogers, but looks like they've been sold to smaller players. The Kincardine station is being sold to the company that owns CKXS Wallaceburg and the new station in Listowel that just went on the air in September 2020.

Is Evanov group now laughing, saying (to MyFM)
"See? Told you the Orangeville market is not good to hold onto..."

The Orangeville myFM is quite successful.  The release suggests this is part of bigger moves.

This will be the third owner for the Kincardine station. I don't know who initially started it, the MyFM bought it, and now it's changing hands again.

Folks up this way love the local myFM station.  They play all the latest hit's from the 80's.  It's not uncommon to walk around town on a Tuesday afternoon, with myFM blasting out AC/DC while people drink in their garages, enjoying the local content.

Initially, Brian Cooper and Danny McCarthy as majority owners and Chris Grossman with an interest.

I did some work about 10 years ago in Exeter, which has a myFM station - and I recall there was a speaker on a lamppost on Main Street downtown that was blasting the local myFM.

My favourite thing about Exeter was the white squirrels.
