Montreal, December 2, 2014 – Cogeco Diffusion Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Cogeco Inc. (TSX: CGO), is

Jean area will be able to tune in to Rythme FM 98.3 and 105.5.
Of course, the programming will include the same music and shows that Rythme FM is known for. Listeners
in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean will be happy to hear their favourite stars on their new local Rythme FM
station. Over the lunch hour, the dynamic duo Mitsou Gélinas and Sébastien Benoit will serve up the
finest music from the 1980s and 90s. On the drive home, listeners in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean will end their
day with Véronique Cloutier and her Véro Show.
“It is both an honour and a privilege to associate ourselves with Canada’s #1 music station, Rythme FM,”
said Sylvain Chamberland, President of Attraction Radio Inc. “This station has been tremendously successful
thanks to the quality of its music and the talent of its hosts. Starting in February, we’ll be proudly offering
the same winning combination to our listeners in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and outlying areas.”

Lachance, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cogeco Diffusion Inc. “It’s good news for our listeners and
great news for Rythme FM. We’re excited to be expanding into another major Quebec market.”
