kowchmedia client celebrates at transmitter site of Montreal's new English radio station CFQR 600AM

Congratulations to our client TTP Media. Montreal's new English newstalk radio station, CFQR 600AM, started testing its signal June 30th by broadcasting music and recorded messages about its programming coming soon. Photo: Engineer Gilles Guimont (left), TTP Media president Rajiv Pancholy (centre) and TTP partner Nicolas Tetrault. The station is expected to be on air by the end of the year.

Click here for an interview with TTP Media President Rajiv Pancholy on Fagstein's Blog - Montreal's authorative media blog. It is a good read about all the problems TTP Media had to overcome to meet the deadline to be up and running on the transmitter. They beat the CRTC deadline by 30 minutes!  Now it is up to the three partners Paul Tietolman (not in the photo) Rajiv Pancholy and Nicolas Tetreault to turn their attention to start looking for on air talent to deliver to English Montreal their vision of the city's newest talk radio station.

kowchmedia is proud of its association with TTP Media  in helping them win the license for AM600 and its French sister station at 940AM.  Click here for more information on our role. kowchmedia logo


 Testimonials from two podcasters

Jason DeFillippo

Jason DeFillippo, Grumpy Old Geeks Podcast

I've been producing podcasts such as The Art of Charm Podcast for almost 5 years as well as behind the mic for just as long on the Grumpy Old Geeks podcast. As a professional listener of podcasts as well, it's easy to fall into the traps of habit and thinking you know everything. Thank god for Steve and his brilliant coaching! He helped with all areas of our presentation, audience interaction, co-hosting, and banter. After the first session the difference in our shows has been night and day in a great way. His experience is invaluable and I think everyone who has a podcast or plans to start one needs to spend a few sessions on Steve Kowch's couch.

Jason Harbinger

Jason Harbinger, Art of Charm Podcast

I've been broadcasting for over a decade both online (The Art of Charm Podcast) and on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. I felt like the show was good, as we had over 3 million monthly listeners, but I knew there was a way to make it even better, I just couldn't put my finger on it. Steve at kowchmedia brought in his years of experience and listened with fresh, but expert, ears, giving us absolutely priceless feedback that was nuanced enough to apply to a professional, and impactful enough to make a difference. I am confident that my producer and I will be working with Steve for years to come.
