  • What Candy Bar Rules Them All in Fredericton?

    Seems like a simple answer doesn't it? Listen to the audio to hear my best guess at the most popular candy bar in Fredericton, and then leave your thoughts in the comment section of this post on our Facebook page. 
  • There will be no trick or treating in these parts of New Brunswick!

    It's also been recommended that you hand out pencils and stickers instead of candy this Halloween but lets be honest... I doubt kids are thinking about stickers and pencils on Halloween LOL.
  • If New Brunswickers don't comply, masks could become mandatory NEXT WEEK!

    This morning I spoke with one of our news team members Charles Renshaw about the possibility of masks becoming mandatory next week in New Brunswick if citizens do not comply and wear masks when they're required. 
  • This 10 year old just wrote a song for Dave Grohl!

    Holy Moly! This interest sensation continues! For sometime now a 10 year old girl named Nandi Bushell has been making a name for herself on youtube doing these incredible cover songs. She's done so well she caught the attention of many rockers, Dave Grohl included, who agreed to a drum off with the 10 year old. What happened next was amazing... Dave wrote Nandi Bushell a custom song, and now this 10 year old prodigy has done the same for Dave. The song is titled "Rock and Grohl", and between us... her song might actually be better LOL! Check out the clip above and prepare for your jaw to drop! 
  • How can you help? Alex Boyd from Fredericton Food Bank answers!

    How can someone who doesn't have a lot help their local food bank? This morning I reached out to Alex Boyd the Executive Director of Greener Village and the Fredericton Food Bank to find out how someone who doesn't have a lot to give, can still help their community and keep those in need with a full stomach. With CERB coming to an end there is a real concern about how many citizens will depend on the food bank, so now is the time to help! Greenervillage.ca to learn more.
  • Linkin Park is releasing a song that's almost 20 years old!

    Some fans have known about this song for almost 20 years. The song that never got put on Hybrid Theory. Fans caught wind of this song when they performed it during a 2001 concert, but that seemed to be it for the tune, and it drove some fans nuts knowing this song existed, had been recorded, but never released. With Hybrid theories 20th anniversary coming up next month, they’re releasing the song with re-release. Right now if you try to find the song on your own, you’re gonna find a lot of people posting fake videos to get the clicks. Better off waiting for its release in the next couple of weeks.
  • Can a Rat be a wholesome family pet?

    I recently had a friend who adopted two pet Rats and I can't help but wonder why pet Rats? Now one incredible thing to know is that shelters are out of Dogs and Cats during this time which absolutely incredible, but still I wonder if I could of found something other than Rats to fill the void. Now if it came down to having a pet snake over Rats... I would take a hundred thousand Rats over a single snake because snakes are super creepy.
  • Should parents with young children be kicked off of planes?

    The latest in controversy brought on by the current world pandemic is parents with young children around the age of 2 are being kicked off of flights because their children struggle with wearing a mask.  It seems to me it's common sense that a 2 year old is going to have a hard time keeping a mask on. We're talking about children with developing minds, they don't understand the situation, and they barely know how to keep a shirt on, you can forget about getting them to wear a mask. Now I'm no expert on planes but doesn't it seem like it's within the realm of possibility that a plane could section off an area for parents and young children? I mean they already section off areas for people with higher incomes vs those who are more hard up. There has to be other solutions aside from "See yea later gator!"

  • Listeners answer! What are those concrete structures in the river?

    I've only been around Fredericton for just over a year, and someone asked me about those concrete structures you see in the river that run parallel to the Westmorland Bridge. I wasn't sure so I asked you, and here's what listeners had to say.  
  • This is why you don't want Tripp giving you a birthday shout out!

    Happy Birthday to Isaac who is turning nine today! You're the future buddy! I wish someone more qualified was here to give you a better wish hahaha.
  • Starting Oct 1st masks will be mandatory at these Fredericton locations!

    As the weather gets colder, the thought of people waiting in line outside of Service NB maintaining Physical distance is a chilly thought. Starting on Oct 1st it will be mandatory for you to wear a mask when visiting any Service NB. This will allow them to have more people inside, and less people waiting outside in the chilly weather.
