CHIP 101.9 is launching a new podcast intended to allow listeners to take an overview of certain current affairs, mainly in the Pontiac. Éric O’Brien, native of Litchfield, who has held several radio positions, was given the mandate to produce this series. He gave an overview of this series of six podcasts, entitled “Balado Nouvelles CHIP 101,9”.

"Well, you have to start by saying that I tried to do something that is quite simple. Content that is easy to digest, as we say, but still informs citizens, CHIP 101.9 listeners in a different way, while, how do we say repackage, local news. And that’s really it, we wanted to focus on the local, the interviews that we don’t always have the chance to stay focused on certain interviews. As you know, there’s a lot going on every week on the radio, but for a small community, that’s something to be proud of. »
- Eric O’Brien (Translated)

The first part of this series will concern Premier François Legault’s announcement in Maniwaki, with 5,000 Quebec government employees to be moved to the region, but so far no jobs have been announced for the Pontiac. The project for a nuclear waste site in Chalk River, the economy in the Pontiac, the war in Ukraine, the reopening of the Félix-Gabriel-Marchand bridge and the provincial election campaign should hold the attention of this series in the coming weeks. This first series of “Balado Nouvelles CHIP 101,9” is sponsored by Century 21 Elite real estate broker, Sébastien Bonnerot.

The first “Balado Nouvelles CHIP 101,9” is available here.
