Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that Bayshore Broadcasting (98 the Beach/Mix1065) has joined the Gran Fondo Lake Huron team again this year as the Official In-Kind Media Sponsor

Bayshore Broadcasting will promote this exciting event in markets all across South-Central Ontario with broadcast and digital marketing strategies, on-air interviews and contesting.

Jim Barbour, Foundation Chair stated,  “Bayshore Broadcasting and 98 the Beach have been outstanding community partners with the Foundation over the years and the power of radio has really made an impact on increasing community awareness of the Foundation and what we do to help keep well equipped, high quality care hospitals in our communities.”

Bayshore Broadcasting Corporation is one of Canada’s fastest growing private broadcasters operating 9 radio stations covering Ontario’s cottage country from the Lake Huron shoreline at Grand Bend, north to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula at Tobermory, east along Georgian Bay to Orillia and all of the Muskokas.  Over the past three years, the Light the Way Day Radiothon on 98 the Beach in Saugeen Shores has raised over $200,000 for the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation, and are thrilled to continue to support events and initiatives that keep quality healthcare close to home.

98 the beach morning show host Brian Longmire adds “I can’t wait to get back on the bike again this year and be part of such an incredible event that not only raises funds for our local hospitals, but promotes healthy living while showcasing our beautiful little piece of the province.”

Brian will also be working closely with the Grand Fondo marketing team to attract riders from the entire region serviced by  Bayshore Broadcastings stations.
