THE AIRWAVES IN WINNIPEG WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

103.1 VIRGIN RADIO IS WINNIPEG'S ALL NEW #1 HIT MUSIC STATION

More hit music. More fun. And now, one of the largest radio movements on the planet has Winnipeg joining its ranks with the all-new #1 hit music station 103.1 Virgin Radio. The new Virgin Radio Street Team will be "Paying It Forward"; paying for gas fill-ups, covering tabs at the bar... letting everyone know that the hottest radio station in town just got hotter! Sharon Taylor, Vice-President and General Manager: "Credit has to go to Ace Burpee (host of Winnipeg's #1 morning show) who started the ball rolling this summer. Ace is a Richard Branson fan and knew that the values of the Virgin Radio brand matched the values that are also important to Winnipeg. We're all very excited, a Virgin Radio station in Winnipeg puts us on the Virgin worldwide map, allowing us to bring even more exciting artists, contests and fun to music fans in Winnipeg. We're incredibly pumped!" Link to Ace Burpee's Interview with Sir Richard Branson
