NEW-FM will offer a huge variety of NEW music ranging from Modern Rock to Hip-Hop, Electronica and Alternative Pop! It will also be massively involved in Edmonton\'s local music scene, especially with its NEW STAR program that will allocate $100,000 (one hundred thousand dollars) each year to find and support new & emerging talent in Edmonton!
