The community radio station CKRP FM at Falher broadcasts in the Peace River area 40 to 60 hours a week. The station is directed by the local Association canadienne-française de l’Alberta (ACFA) president, Mélanie Simard.

Established in 1996, the station’s operating costs have been raised through bingos and telethons. A telethon in March 2004 raised $13,000, and a regular Tuesday evening bingo (with cards being sold at stores in the region for four dollars) is very popular.

At this time, the station has only one employee, Jules-Hubert Beaulieu, who does the morning show Monday through Friday from 7 am to 9am. The afternoon show is hosted by a volunteer, as is the bingo.

The station is located in the Centre Chevalier, a cultural centre in Falher, and although there have been some interruptions in broadcasting, the station is currently on the air regularly.
