Stingray to launch ‘Rewind’ Classic Hits brand in Maritimes

Stingray Radio is set to rebrand three of its stations in the Maritimes under the Classic Hits ‘Rewind’ banner.

Starting Friday at 12 a.m., Adult Hits stations Up! 93.1 (CIHI-FM) Fredericton, NB, and 95.9 Sun FM (CHHI-FM) Miramichi, NB, as well as Active Rocker 89.3 K-Rock (CIJK-FM) Kentville, NS, will be under the Rewind umbrella. 

Each station’s local personalities will remain, including local morning shows The Wake Up show with Dave in Fredericton and Mornings with Darcey in Miramichi. Darrin Harvey, who has helmed mornings on 89.3 K-Rock for the last 13 years, will also continue in his timeslot.

With a focus on playing the greatest hits of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, Stingray’s CHNO-FM Sudbury has carried the Rewind format since 2010.
