Are you ready for a "Brewed" Awakening?  We're bringing back the Tim Hortons Community Coffee Run thanks to Paraclete Transport, Mayfair Print Shop, Keystone Sports Excellence, Portage Mall and of course Tim Horton's.  Watch for us out and about over the next few weeks as we "coffee bomb" Portage La Prairie.  We could show up anywhere with free coffee, hot chocolate and other prizes so make sure you stay listening for clues through the day!


Have an idea where we should be?  Let us know during the Mix 96 Morning Show with Pearl Tymchuck or on our Facebook page or Twitter account!

Portage's Most Huggable

Round 1 Voting is over and even though it was very close, there had to be a winner. By a slim margin, with 35% of the vote, Mil-Jeanne's Kyle Pettinger is off to the finals. Darren Miller was oh so close at 29% but it was not meant to be. He was a finalist in 2012.



And now, Round 2. There will be 5 rounds. At the end, all 5 winners will compete for the big prize, Portage's Most Huggable Man 2015!
