99.3 CountyFM honours friend & radio broadcaster John Mather

Dear Listeners,

One of the beloved founding members of 99.3 County FM, John Mather, passed away Saturday Nov 23 while resting.

After 42 years in broadcasting in Canada and Florida, John was kind enough to help build County FM. He led the formation of the news team, the farm reports, and helped develop an incredibly wide range of programming. He was instrumental in creating the unique station we have today. He continued behind the scenes guiding Music & Miscellany and John was an inspiration and mentor to many at the station.

Please join us this Sunday Dec 1st for Music & Miscellany as we host a special tribute to John Mather.

Our deepest condolences to John’s family and loved ones.

John will be dearly missed.
