Prince Rupert in the spotlight through CKNW

One of British Columbia's most listened to radio stations is sending its flagship radio program to the North Coast today, as British Columbia's most listened to radio host,  CKNW's Bill Good arrives to learn more about the Port of Prince Rupert and the surrounding buzz around the proposed LNG development for the region.

The NW Talk Show host, has a packed itinerary for his program today, from Don Krusel of the Port or Prince Rupert, to representatives from the two LNG companies with plans for the North Coast.

As well as an industry overview of the port and its affiliated terminals, Mr. Good will talk to local politicians and community leaders through the course of his three and a half hour program.

Setting up shop at the Crest Hotel, the program will follow the format of a previous stop over in Prince George where, the "Good in Your Town" sessions examined the forestry and the growing importance of the University of Northern British Columbia to Northern British Columbia's largest city.

Tuesday's program has already raised the profile of development on the north coast across the province and the interest in it this week has had a few local organizations quick to their twitter accounts to spread the word of their spot in the program's line up.

The full line up for the show can be found here, outlining who will be participating in each segment of the program today.

The surge in interest in LNG development on the North Coast has been a focus of the program through the last few months, you can review some of that past programming from our previous post from last month, which provided a number of links to past editions of the show, as well as some background on Mr. Good.

Tuesday marks a return to where his career began for the long time radio host, who launched his broadcasting life at CHTK back in 1965. With an impressive resume of work through the years both in radio and TV, Mr. Good this year celebrates his 25th year with CKNW.

Just last week he was honoured for his work in Broadcasting, awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the RTNDA.

For those that don't drop in at the Crest Hotel to see what's happening from 8:30- Noon, the program can be heard live on the CKNW website, archived as well for listening later on through both the CKNW Audio Vault and by way of Podcast.
