Country Music Returns to Timmins Radio

Well this is great news for country music fans up in Timmins, Ontario! "Country music has never really left Timmins. After all, one of the biggest names in country music history, Shania Twain, hails from Timmins".

Vista Radio's CHMT-FM 93.1 in Timmins, Ontario dropped it's "Moose FM" classic hits format to country as "Country 93.1" on May 20, 2022. It was the first time Timmins has had a country radio station in 16 years!

In 2018, Vista applied to the CRTC to operate a new FM radio station to serve Timmins at 100.3 MHz which could not sustain an additional radio station in that market at that time. https://crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2019/2019-84.htm

Back then I thought it would have been a country music station!
