Radio station FM 90,5 is well established in the provincial capital and is pursuing its evolution after 20 years of broadcasting. What started as a dream is now well anchored in the region and a tradition for many Fredericton and Oromocto families.

CJPN, a family-friendly radio station, plays top 40 hits and concentrates its efforts on today’s French youth and young families. The radio station, located in the Centre communautaire Sainte-Anne, is well connected on the web and is close to its listeners—literally for those in the Community Centre.

On August 22, 1997, Radio Fredericton was born and on August 22, 2017, the radio station had an open house with free ice cream, live hosting and lots of prizes. It was an opportunity for daycares in the complex, the general public and previous volunteers to come and celebrate this important event.

Radio Fredericton, 90.5 fm is open, accessible and available for all francophones, anglophones and community groups.

Local artiste Brittany Schuler (on the web here) created a painting on site to celebrate the anniversary and was helped by young visitors and not-so young visitors that painted dots with their fingers to celebrate Radio Fredericton’s 20th anniversary.
