Toronto Radio Station TRP to Go on Indefinite Hiatus

BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Aug 3, 2016

Toronto independent radio station TRP (Toronto Radio Project) has announced it will be hitting the pause button on programming come the end of this month.

In a post on their Facebook page today (August 3), the station revealed that financial trouble has caused the station to end broadcasts on August 26. 

"Sadly, recent developments have made our financial position untenable," the station wrote. "Thanks for all your support since we launched... We're taking some time to rethink how we can operate our little community. So 'stay tuned.'"

TRP was founded in November 2014 by Frazer Lavender, who looked to bring grassroots internet radio culture he saw in his native London, UK, to Toronto. At present, the station is home to 63 different programs, all hosted by volunteers.

The station also revealed that its archive of recorded programming will remain online to listen to until it can "come back stronger." You can take a listen here.
