COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE ON RADIO LILLOOET
During the current worldwide COVID-19 epidemic, CHLS-FM will broadcast information bulletins from the District of Lillooet and its Emergency Operations Center. At present (21 Mar. 2020) these pre-recorded bulletins can be heard twice a day, at 9 AM and 4 PM. They will also be heard randomly in our music playlists. We realize it may be tedious to hear these bulletins repeatedly when listening to Radio Lillooet, but we think it is worth the price of a bit of tedium to make sure that the necessary information is available. The hours of the bulletins may change in the coming days. This will be noted on this website and announced on air.
We will not be reporting "outside" news about the epidemic because we do not have the resources and that information is widely available from a variety of sources. We do NOT broadcast rumours or speculation.
We offer our best wishes to you - the listener - your family and other loved ones and the whole community.
Radio Lillooet (CHLS-FM, 100.5) is a small non-profit community-based radio station in Lillooet, British Columbia. We have been on the air since 2000. We bring voices from the community to Lillooet and its outlying area, celebrating the joys of small-town life.
If you live on the Hopfarm or another area to the north of Lillooet, you may receive a clearer signal for us at frequency 93.9 FM. If you have an FM antenna, this will improve your reception.
