On Friday, April 23rd, The One 93.1, Leduc County’s FM radio station, celebrated its 2nd birthday with an open house that greeted nearly two hundred guests. Family and friends, urban and rural listeners could not resist the open invite to come partake in a huge and delicious birthday cake, lovingly prepared by Co-op Bakery and some fresh jerky, skillfully crafted by Wilhauk’s Leduc Meat Packers. These were symptomatic of the positive relationships The One management and team members have developed in this region since it first aired on the FM dial on April 16, 2013, designed for country music lovers and regional news followers.
Black Gold Broadcasting president and The One’s owner Mark Tamagi was thrilled to gather the team on hand at that moment for a group photo. His Leduc team was joined by new members of his new venture, 88.1FM, a Spruce Grove-based radio station. Mr. Tamagi was happy to share that, “We are grateful to this community and our regional listeners and advertisers who have made our growth and success a reality. Yes, I like hiring young and upcoming radio personalities, as their enthusiasm and passion for radio keeps the rest of us on our toes!”
Missing from this photo opp were Steve Zimmermann, the fun and booming voice of the morning show and Joelle Jordan, the dynamic news co-anchor.
