Stingray Joins with Independent Canadian Broadcasters to Call for Government Support of Local Radio

The major media company has joined forces with independent broadcasters to send a letter to the federal government, calling for specific measures to support the local radio sector, like tax incentives for advertisers and dedicated advertising spends.

A lot is at stake for Canadian broadcasters and musicians in the upcoming federal budget.

Canadian media company Stingray, which manages over 100 radio stations, has joined forces with independent radio broadcasters to call on strong support from the federal government for the local radio sector. Stingray and the group of broadcasters have made their message clear in a letter to Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland and Minister of Canadian Heritage Pasale St-Onge, calling for measures that will assist local radio amidst declining advertising revenues.
