Striking Guild members at MBS Radio have launched Radio Free Saint John, a web-based station that has the most live local presence in Saint John. The station was up and running last week for a soft launch and the official opening is today.
The Guild and the local labour community have been urging local advertisers to suspend their advertising on the struck stations Big John, K-100 and CFBC for the duration of the strike. They have also urged listeners to tune out the MBS stations. Now those listeners and advertisers have an alternative.
The strikers wish to thank all of the supporters in Saint John and across the country. We are urging anyone in the Saint John area to visit the Radio Free Saint John, which is located in the strike headquarters at 201 Union Street across from the struck stations, and to join us on the picket line.
