Grain Rush Still Going Strong!

grainrush sept112014

It's been 2 weeks so far of heading out into fields and feeding some hard working farmers in the area as part of Grain Rush 2014!  The good times finish up this week but you still have the chance to get your name in the following draw boxes for your chance to win:


Portage Credit Union

HUB International


We sure hope Mother Nature starts to cooperate so we can continue heading out the the fields to serve up Seasons' food instead of the shop.  Though either way we know you guys will still give us some great company!  Thanks again for all you do from CFRY 920!

Change Is Coming



You've probably heard by now, change is coming next Wednesday to Portage Radio and a third station will be launched at 9am. The Parking lot party to follow will feature live music, free food, loads of prizes plus one big one - A trip for two to Las Veags! This will be our first of three trips to give away and will also launch the biggest radio promotion in Portage's history. Following the launch, we already have more than $20, 000 worth of top end stuff to give away!

Some people have been asking if this is the end to CFRY. No, it is not. CFRY is Manitoba's longest running country station and has been on the 920am frequency for almost 60 years. It will continue to be there as well as But there will be some changes to 93.1fm - and we think you are going to love it.

Tune in next week to find out what all the fuss is about and remember - join us at the parking lot party Wednesday September 10th, 5-7pm at our studios on the west side of Portage.
