OTTAWA – It’s time to get into the Christmas spirit, Ottawa. At 4 p.m. on Friday, MOVE 100 flipped the switch to become Ottawa’s Christmas music station.
This is the earliest date yet for which the station switches to all Christmas music, all the time.
This is the time of year when we start decorating, buying local gifts and getting into all things Christmas, ”said stuntman Stu from MOVE 100 Mornings with Stu, Angie and Janel. “Move 100 will be there with all your favorites!
“The excitement around the holidays this month has been incredible,” said Brittany Thompson-Grunig, regional director of local radio programs for Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. “Since November 1, my inbox has been flooded with listeners asking ‘Does this happen, when it happens, can it happen sooner?'”
The resort is also launching a brand new contest, 30 Days of Giveaways. Every day of the week at 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., they distribute cash.
“On Monday we are announcing another new contest which will be very special for those hoping to reunite with their loved ones this Christmas,” said Thompson-Grunig.
This year again, Santa Claus will be recording weekday mornings with Stuntman Stu, Angie and Janel. And Behind the Christmas Hits with Drew Savage will bring fun facts about favorite hits throughout the week as well as an all-new weekend countdown timer.
The Kingston and Brockville MOVE stations will also switch to Christmas music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, starting at 4 p.m. Friday.
“We are ready to go out and celebrate with everyone and we are thrilled to know how much joy this brings to our loyal listeners! Thompson-Grunig said.
The switch to Christmas music means it’s time to think about giving season. So what would Stu like for Christmas?
“If my wife is reading this… a new Barrhaven Ford Hybrid F150,” he said.
