We are celebrating our 75th Birthday with a new partnership and the launch of the Talent Trust Artist Spotlight radio show.
Jim Robson, Chairman of CIOE-97.5 FM states: “I am delighted with the newly formed partnership between Nova Scotia Talent Trust and CIOE-97.5 FM on the eve of your amazing 75th Anniversary. The natural synergies flowing between our two cultural organizations will ensure that Nova Scotia's rich treasury of talent across all artistic disciplines is properly recognized, celebrated, and presented to the public through special dedicated radio programs and concerts that are streamed live around the world, along with other cooperative cultural initiatives. Together, we will create infinite opportunities for the enhancement and ongoing development of Nova Scotia's world-class artistic community.”
The Talent Trust Artist Spotlight will be hosted by Breagh MacKinnon, NSTT board member, scholarship alumni, and singer, songwriter with Port Cities. The show will air on the first Thursday of the month at 2 p.m., premiering May 2nd.
“I am honoured and excited to be hosting the “Nova Scotia Talent Trust Artist Spotlight. I look forward to getting to know our Talent Trust Alumni and bringing you unique and original content from some of the many ground-breaking artists we have supported for the past 75 years. Hear stories, performances, and interviews you can't find anywhere else!” Breagh MacKinnon.
