Station Manager Summit Details Announced

We are excited to reveal the agenda for the Station Manager's Summit taking place in Winnipeg January 18th and 19th.

We are very grateful for CJNU-FM (Nostalgia Radio) for hosting us. CJNU-FM and the Winnipeg Foundation will be hosting us for the two days.

We have some presentations and guided conversation but we've created a lot of space for station managers to bring their concerns, and discuss the biggest issues facing them.
