101.5 THE WOLF CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF ROCK
IN PETERBOROUGH AND THE KAWARTHAS
Special 30th Birthday Festivities Begin February 14
For Immediate Release
PETERBOROUGH, February 10, 2022 – Corus Radio’s 101.5 The Wolf (CKWF-FM) is thrilled to ring in its 30th birthday on February 14, celebrating three decades as the #1 rated rock station in Central Ontario. To commemorate this historic moment, the station is launching an exciting 30th birthday campaign.
Beginning February 14, listeners will be invited to play The Wolf’s 30th Birthday Elimination Game. For the first time in the show’s history, Wolf listeners will get to choose the prize they want to win (or rather what they don’t want to win). The Wolf will start with 31 grand prizes listed on TheWolf.ca, including $3,000 cash. Over the course of the contest, 30 contestants will each eliminate one prize from the board until just one remains. On Friday April 29, one contestant will be drawn as the winner of the remaining grand prize.
Audiences can also expect to see a collection of 30 exclusive interviews with past and present on-air hosts. One interview will be released each week and published on TheWolf.ca. The Wolf will also release a “30 Years of Rock” video commercial that will be viewable on Facebook, Instagram and Global Peterborough. Birthday wishes and interviews from popular music artists will be featured on The Wolf’s Facebook page and Global Peterborough. And as with any notable birthday celebration, there will be some big surprises!
“We’re proud to celebrate The Wolf’s 30th birthday and recognize the station’s past and exciting future,” said Rob Seguin, Program Manager for 101.5 The Wolf and 100.5 Fresh Radio. “We’re thrilled to have reached this milestone, which is a testament to the incredible team of people who work hard every day and continue bringing the best in rock music to Peterborough and the Kawarthas.”
The Wolf is proud of its heritage and service to the community. Over the years, it has helped raise millions of dollars for numerous charities including more than $1.6 million for Kawartha Food Share. In 2018, 101.5 The Wolf, 100.5 Fresh Radio and Global Peterborough were presented with the Local Media Award by the Canadian Mental Health Association Ontario Division. This annual award recognizes journalists or media outlets that best exemplify the spirit of CMHA through their significant local coverage of the impact of mental illnesses or addictions.
