CORUS Classic Hits CKRU (100.5 KRUZ FM)/PETERBOROUGH, ON is dropping game broadcasts for junior hockey's PETERBOROUGH PETES, reports the PETERBOROUGH EXAMINER. The station had carried the PETES for 15 years, dating back to when it was on AM (the station moved to FM in JUNE 2009).
PD FRED PATTERSON told the EXAMINER, "We still want to be heavily associated with the PETES. On the FM dial now play-by-play doesn't work for us the way it used to as a music intensive station on FM."
