KOOL FM Celebrates International Women’s Day Over The Airwaves

KOOL FM will be playing female artists all day long on International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is on Wednesday, March 8, and the KOOL FM crew is celebrating it over the airwaves.

Every year, International Women’s Day celebrates female achievement, raises awareness for bias, and promotes action for equality. This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity. This is a powerful message that emphasizes the difference between equality and equity. For true inclusion and belonging, we need to achieve both.

On International Women’s Day, KOOL FM will ONLY be playing songs by female artists to honour the special occasion. That means an entire 24 hours filled with classics and new hits by women!

KOOL FM’s drive host, Amy Aust, says the initiative is a great way to highlight the day.

“We’ll be featuring an all-female line-up with some artists that might not be in regular rotation to give you that ‘I remember her! I love this song!’ moment as we celebrate women’s musical contributions all day long for International Women’s day,” said Aust.

KOOL FM Celebrates Women Every Year

The initiative started back in 2021. Matt Cacchione, the station’s Brand Manager, says the station got a lot of great feedback from listeners and the community. In response, KOOL FM has made their all-female line-up an annual event.

“Playing a 100% female playlist for 24 hours on International Women’s Day is a great way to celebrate women, create more awareness of what the day is all about within our community and hopefully contribute towards the conversation of gender equality even further in our country,” said Cacchione.

“Our listeners are in for a few surprises too along the way. They’ll hear some gems they probably haven’t heard in a while.”

This March 8, Join Kool FM in honouring all the incredible women in our lives and from all over the world. The ones that raised us, taught us, helped shape us, fought for us, and showed us the importance of gender equality, and the work we still need to do.

You can listen on the radio at 107.5 FM or listen right from your computer!

This day is a time to recognize and celebrate the many achievements of women and girls from all over the world; socially, economically, culturally, and politically.
