FYI Newsletter Shifts To A Weekly Schedule

By David Farrell

Effective today, FYI’s newsletter will be published on Thursdays only as the news team winnows down on the wide spectrum of available news and fashions it into a cogent, digestible format for our over 6,000 weekly newsletter subscribers in Canada and abroad.


The reason for reducing the schedule is to provide more thoughtful detail on stories of the day.

Bulletin breaking news stories will be published as needed, when they break, on the website and broadcast alerts will be fanned out using social media platforms that include Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

As ever, Team FYI is eternally grateful for the financial underpinning provided by Gary Slaight that has carried this Canadian music industry news report since 2012.
