Community Online First

The county’s radio station is changing its offerings, beginning Friday, Jan. 15, as Stingray launches 94.1 The Breeze…Pictou County’s Relaxing Favourites.

Mix 94.1 is becoming The Breeze (CKEC-FM) and will offer Pictou County listeners a broad playlist spanning five decades, from the 1970s, 80s, 90s, and today.  

“We’ve heard the concerns of our listeners wanting a better variety and familiarity.  We’re offering that, and much more,” said Scott George, program director of 94.1FM via a press release.

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 Halifax, Vancouver, Edmonton, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Detroit, among other markets and it is proving to be very popular.

94.1 The Breeze will be available for live streaming at, on the Stingray Music mobile app, and on the Radio Player Canada app.
