Broadcast Dialogue recently announced the winners of our inaugural Canadian Radio Awards, with our jury selecting Antigonish, Nova Scotia's 98.9XFM (CJFX-FM) as our first-ever Small Market Station of the Year.

989XFM is one of the last independently-owned stations in the Maritimes, governed by a Board of Directors and with second and third generation shareholders. Despite the challenges of the past year, it's been able to retain its 11 staff without making cuts to programming.

On this episode of Broadcast Dialogue - The Podcast, we welcome 98.9 XFM General Manager Ken Farrell.
