The Parrsboro Radio Society (PRS) was incorporated as a non-profit organization under Nova Scotia’s Societies Act on June 4, 1999. It is governed by by-laws registered with the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stocks.
The Society and station are run by a volunteer board, volunteer workers, a volunteer program manager and a technical director. The board of directors is responsible to the membership at large.
The PRS Board of Directors:
Lyle Yorke - chairperson
Saundra Spence - vice chairperson and station manager
Florence York - secretary
Fred O'Hearn - program manager
The station’s Recognized Agent (the person authorized to receive documents on behalf of the society) is Ross Robinson, who serves as CiCR’s technical director.
Between 1999 and September 2008, the station only broadcast part time, mainly covering special events. It received its full-time licence on September 19, 2008 which allowed us to broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
