Vista Broadcast Group, or Vista Radio, is a Canadian radio broadcasting company. The company only owned stations in British Columbia until 2007, when it expanded outside the province by acquiring an existing station in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and launching a new one in Grande Prairie, Alberta.[1] It has since also expanded into Ontario, with the acquisition of Haliburton Broadcasting Group in 2012.

Vista Radio was founded by Paul Mann, Jason Mann, Margot Micallef, Barb Fairclough and Bryan Edwards in 2004.[2] Vista now employs over 160 employees.

The company plans to convert most of its AM stations to the FM dial.

On April 23, 2012, Vista announced a deal to acquire Haliburton Broadcasting Group, a broadcast group with 24 stations in small or mid-sized markets in Ontario, in cooperation with Westerkirk Capital.[3] The deal was approved by the CRTC on October 19, 2012.[4]
