Six Rivers Radio Welcomes Political Leaders
Three of Nova Scotia's political leaders will be guests on tomorrow's edition of "Morning Talk" on Six Rivers Radio.
It is the final day of the Nova Scotia election campaign, the last chance to reach voters before they cast their ballots on Tuesday.
Premier Stephen McNeil, PC Leader Jamie Baillie, and Jonathan Dean of the Atlantica Party will headline Monday's interviews.
Morning Talk is pretty much what the name implies, a radio program that features open dialogue. Guests are invited and people are urged to call in from 8 to 10 am, Monday through Friday. It is not a talk show where the public can access the guests. Instead, it is a series of one-on-one interviews by veteran broadcaster Bill Martin.
The party leaders were invited through the local candidates running in Cumberland North. It is in keeping with the "local first" thrust of Six Rivers News. Martin says, "We had three time slots available and offered them on a first-come-first-served basis." The NDP did not respond.
Six Rivers News was launched just over a year ago to fill a media void in the rural area of Cumberland North. The six rivers (Tidnish, Shinimicas, Philip, Pugwash, Wallace, and Dewar) form the natural watershed for the region, the uniting factor for the regional community that stretches from the New Brunswick border to the Colchester County line. The news outlet gives voice to about 18 thousand local residents, but is unlimited in reach through the internet.
