Harvard Media Fort McMurray Origin Story
Get The Party started with Harvard Media Fort McMurray
In 2008, Harvard Media struck a chord with the Wood Buffalo region, launching Mix 103.7, the first Hot A/C station to serve the community. Our infectious mix of music, content, and news coverage quickly made us a local favorite. In 2013, we broadened our playlist with the acquisition of 100.5 Cruz FM, a classic hits station playing everything from AC/DC to The Barenaked Ladies. Now, 16 years later, we're turning up the volume and welcoming Mix to the play family. In 2024, we're blending the nostalgia of our past with every millennial's favorite throwbacks, staying true to our roots while introducing fresh on-air talent and fun, positive segments. play103 is more than just another station; it's a vibrant community reflecting the genuine, insightful, and positive spirit of our listeners. Get ready for a new chapter in our journey, where we continue to be the trusted, approachable voice in your day. Welcome to play103 - your party, our playlist.
