About Us

Tiessen Consulting & Associates itself has been providing media services to the radio industry for 10 years, specifically management of what is now the Chuckwagon Radio Network and for the last seven years in the various rodeo’s and exhibitions throughout Western Canada.

In August of 2004, Jamie began the process of applying to the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission). The application was served to the commission in March of 2005, however it was not until February of 2006 that Tiessen Media Inc. was able to present at the Calgary Public Hearing for radio stations. Not long after that, on August 2nd, 2006, Tiessen Media Inc was selected as the best applicant, and approved for a radio service in Airdrie and Cochrane Alberta.

On April 12, 2007, we launched The Range 106.1FM Airdrie & 95.3FM Cochrane. Tiessen Media Inc. is excited to serve these communities with their own local radio service.

Our commitments to communities, charities, and the people whom we serve have always been an important part of Tiessen Media. We look forward to the opportunity to become a part of these communities, through the new service we will offer them.
