Best Radio Station


Diversity is a key ingredient for CKDU with news and spoken word programming, and music shows covering styles like Latin, Arabic, electronic, indie rock and more. The most visible public radio station in Halifax besides the CBC, CKDU garnered votes from dedicated listeners, some of whom are members of the station. Those who live outside the downtown core will appreciate moves made in 2005, which will establish the station as a high-powered broadcaster. The changes bring better reception throughout the HRM on the new frequency, 88.1, in the upcoming weeks. “The groundwork for most of this was laid in 2005,” broadcast technician Stephen Kelly says. “We had talked about it for a while, but this year it was like, let’s just go ahead and do it.”
