OTTAWA - NewCap Radio announced this week that Canada's only nationally syndicated weekly CHR Top 30 countdown program is coming Saturday, November 6, 2004 on NewCap Radio stations from west to east.

Beginning Saturday, November 6, 2004, The Canadian Hit 30 Countdown premieres on five stations across Canada, taking in two of Canada's largest markets (Hot 89-9 Ottawa and 96X Edmonton) as well as Sudbury (Z103), Thunder Bay (Hot 105-3), and St. John's (99.1 Hits-FM). More markets will be added in the very near future.

The Canadian Hit 30 Countdown will be hosted direct from the nation's capital by Mauler & Rush of the Hot 89-9 morning show. The countdown is under the guidance of NewCap's CHR format captain Rob Mise and vice-president of programming Steve Jones.

The music is based on radio airplay, listener requests, CD sales, and download statistics and will be written and produced by Ant-ny of Hot 89-9, with assistance and contribution from staff at NewCap Radio stations from coast to coast. "We couldn't be more excited about the future of hit radio in Canada", said Jones.

Canada has lacked a national CHR countdown program since last year when the only national countdown at the time, Z95.3's Canadian Top 20, changed format to Hot AC.

For information on the Canadian Hit 30 Countdown contact Steve Jones at or 780-437-9206.
