Stingray Launches 96.5 The Breeze in Halifax

January 15, 2019 - On Thursday, January 17th, a warm new breeze will arrive in Halifax as Stingray launches 96.5 The Breeze…Halifax’s Relaxing Favourites.

96.5 The Breeze (CKUL-FM) will offer Halifax listeners something new that has been missing on the dial for many years. With easy, relaxing, and familiar favourites, 96.5 The Breeze will provide an oasis from today’s extremely noisy and busy world.

Listeners can expect a broad playlist spanning five decades, from the 1970s, 80s, 90s, and today. 96.5 The Breeze will feature artists like Lionel Richie, Elton John, Ed Sheeran, Whitney Houston, Sara McLachlan, Billy Joel, and Adele, giving listeners a non-stop stream of relaxing favourites that they can listen to at work, at home, or in the car.

“We’re offering an escape – a place to relax and revisit these great songs that listeners know and love. They were all huge hits, and for some reason, radio in Halifax seems to have forgotten about them,” said Dan Barton, Stingray’s Director of Contemporary Programming for Nova Scotia. “96.5 The Breeze is bringing those fantastic songs – and that relaxing, familiar feel - back to the radio.”

Some of the largest cities in Canada and United States have recently seen similar radio stations launch over the past year, with tremendous success. The Breeze format is now on the air in Vancouver, Edmonton, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Detroit, among other markets and it is proving to be very popular with listeners and advertisers.

96.5 The Breeze will be available for live streaming at and on the Radio Player Canada app featuring over 500 of Canada’s leading radio stations.

96.5 The Breeze launches at 12am on Thursday, January 17 on 96.5 (CKUL-FM).
