Penticton BC

This is an exciting time for CFUZ - Peach City Radio - based in Penticton, British Columbia. We are a new and growing organization that hosts a 24 hour/day online web stream featuring original programming, automated music and syndicated shows. With the approval of our CRTC licence in May 2015, we have begun to transition to an FM broadcast from our newly constructed community radio studio. This is a pivotal stage in the development of CFUZ, and we are looking for the right person to make a positive impact on our organization.

Have we mentioned that Penticton is an amazingly beautiful place to live? Penticton is a city of 35,000 nestled between two beautiful lakes in the southern Okanagan Valley region of British Columbia. Visitors and residents enjoy year-round outdoor pursuits such as triathlon, climbing and cycling. With mild winters and dry hot summers, it’s the centre of the Okanagan wine industry.
