Each winter season in recent years the Canadian numbers in Florida have reached or topped 4 MILLION annually. This is the market Canada Calling targets throughout the winter, from November to April, the peak winter tourist season.

This is the Canada Calling radio network’s 63rd year on air (and more recently on line at www.canadacalling.com ) throughout Florida. The voice of Canada Calling, Prior Smith, has had the pleasure of hosting the daily broadcasts of news-from-home for the past 40 of those 63 years. The newscasts are prepared each morning at a studio near Toronto and then broadcast throughout Florida between 8:30AM and 1:00PM, Monday through Saturday.

Prior Smith will be on site at Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda from 9:00AM to 11:00AM, Tuesday, February 7th after which he will do the daily newscast LIVE from our long time local affiliate Seaview WCVU FM 104.9 at 12 NOON.

“With each passing year the Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte/Englewood region of Florida attracts more and more Canadian visitors. It will, indeed, be a pleasure to visit Fishermen’s Village again and to be back in one of my favorite Florida destinations!”

The public is invited to come meet this radio legend!
