Radio Station Recognized for Hiring Record

OK, we stray to Canada for the feel good story of the day!

AMHERST, Nova Scotia -- Listeners to Tantramar FM Community Radio might have been surprised that the station was honoured recently for employing persons with disabilities. Anyone listening to Sam Hunt on the air would never notice he has a disability.
Hunt, a 22-year-old Tatamagouche native, has been working as an assistant to operations manager Ron Bickle at the station since September, performing a variety of tasks, including broadcasting.
He also happens to be afflicted with cerebral palsy, but it does not affect his work at the station.
