96.5 The Breeze to launch in Halifax
Stingray is launching 96.5 The Breeze – Halifax’s Relaxing Favourites – on Thursday, January 17.
96.5 The Breeze (CKUL-FM) will offer Halifax listeners easy, relaxing, and familiar favourites with 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.
“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. The Breeze format is now on the air in Vancouver, Edmonton, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Detroit.
