This is CINI/FM, 95.3

Back in 1990, this station pioneered high-power community radio. 50,000 watts, serving Mistissini and the Chibougamau and Chapais area of the James Bay inland area of northern Quebec, it brought Cree-language programming to the region.

CINI/FM Mistissini reaches a potential audience of 15,000 and is the only local commercial FM in the area.

Founded by Buckley Petawabano, it is now operated by the Lake Mistissini Telecommunications Association. The turntables and clocks have now gone digital, the transmitter has been replaced, but the music keeps on coming.... CINI/FM is managed by Jimmy Iserhoff. Tel: (418) 923-3333
