Astral Inaugrates Montreal Broadcast Centre

Astral Radio is pleased to officially inaugurate its all-new premises in Montreal by having its business partners and representatives from the main Quebec agencies over for a visit. Since September 3rd, Astral’s five radio stations, NRJ Montréal 94.3, 107,3 Rouge fm, CJAD 800 AM, Virgin Radio 96 and CHOM 97 7, have been broadcasting from the same address, thereby making Astral Radio Montreal Canada’s largest private radio broadcasting centre.

Over the past year, Astral Radio has made major investments in its Montreal headquarters in order to make state-of-the-art technology an integral part of its infrastructure. The Astral Radio English-language stations (CJAD 800 AM, Virgin Radio 96 and CHOM 97 7) have now left their studios on Fort Street to join their French-language counterparts (NRJ Montréal 94.3 and 107,3 Rouge fm) at 1717 René-Lévesque Boulevard East. Astral Radio’s five Montreal stations are now united under one roof, sharing cutting-edge technology in their exceptionally modern and attractive new premises.

In addition to uniting the strengths of the five stations, this endeavor brings stations, shows and radio personalities together under one roof. Now an essential hub for every promotional tour and for news and information in the city, only one stop is needed to reach millions of listeners in different target groups.  

Astral Radio would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank its many advertisers who have helped it maintain its role as leader in the Montreal radio market and to cordially welcome them to its new home.
