Name/format change coming for 106.9 The Bear?

27 comments:

  1. we at https://www.facebook.com/BETTERROCKSTATIONOTTAWA are very interested in this and what lies ahead with the new name change and if it will go all pop or stay has a Rock format. we obviously would rather see the new station stay in the Rock genre. it would be even more awesome if they utilized the name "FRESH" and bring in more todays Rock and less tragically Hip and Nickleback that the Bear soo heavily favored in the past. there is a HUGE amount of Rock bands that are trending in the U.S. and Europe that we don't get to hear here. let hope the crack in the door that the Bear had for new music kicks wide open!!!

  6. I was super pissed today when I tuned in to 106.9 and heard the same garbage pop. Do we really need ANOTHER station that plays top 40 garbage? Hot 89.9 and others do that already. Thank you for taking away the one station that played good music from the 90's. Good Canadian rock content among others. When The Bear was reintroduced after it was Virgin radio, it was amazing. And now it's gone again. I will be removing the preset from my car radio now. Thanks.

  8. ya, this is just another shit station playing the garbage nobody wants to buy on ITunes.. its probly still owned by virgin (remember when 106.9 was virgin radio?) so yea, that explains why its such a pile of shit now.... what we need in this city is another 54 rock or ACTUAL classic rock station.. not "new music from old bands".. actual MUSIC recorded pre 80.. this jump shit sucks balls...

    You've got to be kidding me.. I'm 20 and I was born and raised with The Bear blasting in my ears!! YOU CAN'T TAKE THE BEST ROCK STATION FROM US. My father and I are as heartbroken as could be. I can't comprehend why they would change an incredible station - with unbelievable hosts - to yet ANOTHER crap music station.

    I have been listening since the station was 54 rock and I still have that sweater, keeping it as a souvenir. it was great when they moved from AM to FM in the early 90,s. I' m 46 and I will always listen to rock. I will always have the nicest memory of my daughter when she was 3 years old doing the expression of " 106.9 THE BEAR RRRAWRRRR!!!!! can't believe it's gone again. Estie de tabarnaque de calice...............Just one more pist off listener.

    This is ridiculous! Bring back the Bear, who ever thought that this was a good idea obviously has something wrong with them. These days people can't leave good things alone they always half to be tampering and it never turns out good, Like come on seriously do you actually think that this is going to work, Just another stupid station for flamers to listen to! If read all of the posts it is quite obvious that this new station isn't wanted and The Bear is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The official statement was
    "We are confident the new format will be a welcome addition to the Ottawa radio landscape. Your support is important to us and we invite you to listen to the station that we are certain will become an audience favorite."
    You are wrong to be confident. The new format is not welcome. Our support is gone. The new format will fail. You should fire the 'marketing genius' who made this happen.

    I'd rather Jump to 105.7, all static, all the time. Easier on the ears.
