The station was launched on 1 September 1981 by presenter Graham Thornton and the first song played was 'Pilot of the Airwaves' by Charlie Dore. Radio Aire originally broadcast on 362 metres medium wave (828 kHz AM) and 94.6 VHF but was moved to 96.3 FM (VHF) in 1986.
On 17 July 1990, Radio Aire split frequencies, forming Aire FM and Magic 828. In 1992, the name was changed to Radio Aire FM and then, 96.3 Aire FM in 1995. A change of format in 1996 saw another station name change to The New 96.3 Aire FM before The New was dropped in 1998. By March 2001, Radio Aire had reverted back to its original name.

KSAN (107.7 FM, "107.7 The Bone") is a commercial radio station licensed to San Mateo, California, with its transmitter located on San Bruno Mountain. It broadcasts to the San Francisco Bay Area. KSAN airs a mainstream rock music format.
This entry is primarily about radio station KSAN 94.9 FM known to "Baby Boomers" in Northern California during the 1960s.
Call sign KSAN has been used by four unrelated radio stations and one related TV station in the San Francisco Bay Area since the late 1950s. In the early 1960s, KSAN 1450 AM San Francisco became KSOL and programmed R&B music station, notable for DJ Sly Stone (Sylvester Stewart), who went on to fame as a musician.
The KSAN call sign was first used on FM at 94.9 on May 21, 1968, after the former classical music station KSFR was purchased by Metromedia in October 1966. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) had given a construction permit for KSFR on September 20, 1957 to H. Alan Levitt, who owned a San Francisco record shop. Levitt had previously worked as an engineering assistant and announcer at KLX (910 AM) in Oakland. KSFR was assigned 94.9. Levitt had tried unsuccessfully to get 96.5, but the FCC gave that frequency to
Cygnus Radio is a noncommercial Internet radio station founded in 2005, broadcasting music created by independent and unsigned artists.
Cygnus Radio was founded in February of 2005 by Toni Anne Reagan (aka DJ SwanSpirit, Swannie), David Vesel, and Rex Butler. It presently operates as a noncommercial entity, airing independent and unsigned artists. The station was named after the constellation Cygnus, "the swan", because of Ms. Reagan's affinity for the animal. All of the founders previously worked at other Internet radio stations, and founded the station in reaction to policies they observed at other organizations that they felt had lost focus. Butler was replaced in January 2006 by Tom Wylde.
Cygnus Radio has no geographic market, although most programming is in English. It is operated as a virtual organization by Reagan, Vesel, and Wylde.
Management states on the station's web site that their primary emphasis is on live programming, using an on-air personality who is responsible for generating an audio stream which is subsequently rebroadcast to listeners. The station currently features about a dozen live programs. Additionally, unscheduled time periods are handled by an

The station is part of the Free Radio network, which broadcasts a mix of chart, contemporary and classic hits alongside local news and information.
Launched on 19 February 1974, on 261 metres medium wave, (1152kHz) and 94.8 MHz FM, BRMB was the fourth independent local commercial radio station to begin broadcasting in Britain after Capital Radio, LBC and Radio Clyde. Broadcasting a mix of popular music with local news, live football coverage, information and specialist output, the station became popular amongst residents in Birmingham and later changed its main frequency from 94.8 to 96.4 FM in 1986.
The original station name, BRMB, was not an acronym (contrary to popular belief - some believed it stood for Birmingham Radio, Midlands Broadcasting). Instead, the original company, Birmingham Broadcasting Ltd., wanted something that combined a US-style call-sign with the company name - e.g. Birmingham - (BRM) and broadcasting - (B);

In 1954, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign hosted the National Association of Educational Broadcasters for the establishment of broadcast allocations (AM/FM radio and TV channels) for non-commercial education programming. The outcomes from these meetings established the foundation for National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting System.
In 1956, Western Illinois University established WWKS for educational radio broadcasting at 91.3 MHz with 3,000 watts. The station's FCC call letters were attributed to William Kimbrough Shake, who installed the equipment acquired from Gates Radio, in Quincy, IL.

The radio studios and transmitter were located in Tillman Hall (the "new science building") at Western Illinois
WHK (1420 AM) — branded NewsTalk 1420 WHK — is commercial news/talk radio station licensed to Cleveland, Ohio serving Greater Cleveland. WHK was the first radio station to broadcast in the state of Ohio, and is the 15th oldest station still broadcasting in the United States.

Only about 1000 listeners were able to hear the first broadcast, and most of them were members of the Cleveland Radio Association. By 1922, licensees were barred from broadcasting on 200 meters, so Cox applied for a commercial broadcasting license.
Warren Cox received a commercial license for his station on February 21, 1922 with the callsign WHK (the Commerce Department was still issuing mostly three-letter callsigns to commercial radio stations before April 4, 1922), and HK standing for the

CKLW is a 50,000 watt AM radio station broadcasting on 800 kHz and located in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and serving Windsor and Detroit. Additionally, its signal can be heard as far west as Grand Rapids, Michigan; as far east as Batavia, New York; as far south as Edgewood, Kentucky; and as far north as Posen, Michigan.
It is best known for having been one of the most influential Top 40 stations in the world in the 1960s and 1970s. During this era, CKLW used a very tight Top 40 format known as Boss Radio, devised by radio programmer Bill Drake. However, CKLW never actually used the handle "boss" on the air, just the style. Rather than a "Boss 30", CKLW's weekly music survey was known as a "Big 30". And instead of calling itself "Boss Radio", CKLW called itself "The Big 8". During this period it was the top-rated radio station not only in Windsor, but across the river in Detroit, and even in cities as far away as Toledo and Cleveland in Ohio.
In its current incarnation, CKLW is a news/talk radio station primarily serving listeners in Windsor and Essex County in Ontario, Canada, with a mix of local and syndicated programs, including some programs from the United States.

KEZE is remembered by many as being born in the 1960s as an album-oriented hard rock FM radio station on 105.7 FM ("Rock 106", now KZBD), sporting the slogan "Spokane's Best Rock". From the late 1970s through the 1980s, the station enjoyed large audience appeal on the strength of playing the "classics" (e.g. Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin) as well as championing newer hard rock bands such as Night Ranger, Krokus, Ronnie James Dio, Ozzy Osbourne, and Def Leppard. With the emergence of grunge and "the Seattle sound" in the late 80s and early 90s, KEZE adopted the harder-edged sounds of heavy guitar-based alternative rock (e.g. Soundgarden, Alice in Chains). "Rock 106" would disappear in November 1995 when the station flipped to AAA. The rock format and KEZE call letters would be moved to 96.9 FM in March 1996. As the public appeal of guitar-based alternative waned in the mid-90s, KEZE attempted a "back to

WPGB is a conservative talk radio station based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Owned by Clear Channel Communications, the station broadcasts at 104.7 MHz with an ERP of 13 kW. Its transmitter is located in Pittsburgh.
Though this station first signed on the air as 104.7 WYDD in 1967, its roots can be traced back to 1963 as 100.7 WPGH and under the ownership of Gateway Broadcasting Enterprises, which also owned New Kensington-licensed AM station WKPA (now WGBN). 100.7 was also (and still is) licensed to New Kensington.
Gateway owner Nelson L. Goldberg was interested in acquiring an improved FM signal with Pittsburgh market penetration. That opportunity presented itself in 1967, when a channel opened up for 104.7. To acquire the new signal, Goldberg had to spin off WPGH, which was purchased by Milton Hammond and moved to Millvale, where it was rechristened as big-band formatted WNUF-FM. That station is known today as WBZZ.
104.7 adopted the WPGH call letters, but they didn't stay around for long, as the station changed to a full-time jazz format and given the call letters WYDD, for "the 'WIDE' world of Pittsburgh", using an elongated globe as its logo. The station would then move to a
WSTR FM 94.1 MHz ("Star 94") is an Atlanta FM radio station airing an hot adult contemporary format. It is owned by Lincoln Financial Media, and has Smyrna, Georgia as its city of license.
94.1 was once WGST-FM and was given away in the 1950s as FM did not take off. In the 1960s, WDJK appeared to occupy 94.1 as a brand new station, associated with WYNX (AM-1550) in Smyrna.
Within two years, 94.1 was sold to the owners of WQXI (AM-790), which was Atlanta's leading Top 40 Rock station. FM-94.1 then became easy listening WKXI. By 1969 the station had adopted WQXI-FM as its call letters, and in mid-1977 the station was officially rechristened 94Q. It became one of Atlanta's dominant FM stations and remained so until 1987, when its audience share began to dwindle. Various tweaks were made to the music mix, followed by an outright change of direction in early 1989 that competed head-to-head with then-dominant CHR WAPW/Power 99 (now WWWQ). 94Q was soundly beaten, and the station began to purge most of its management and on-air talent.
94Q also featured a smooth jazz music program called Jazz Flavors, which eventually served as the genesis for WJZF "Jazz Flavors 104.1", Atlanta's first

CFGX-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts at 99.9 FM in Sarnia, Ontario. The station broadcasts a bright mainstream adult contemporary format with the brand name The Fox. As with most mainstream ACs in Canada, CFGX has a "hotter" and "brighter" sound than American stations with the same format, thus positioning it in-between U.S.-based competitors WGRT and adult top 40 station WBTI.

For many years CKOI-FM was the most popular station in Montreal according to BBM Canada ratings using full coverage reach numbers (as opposed to central reach numbers which only take into account listeners from the central market area); however, full coverage reach numbers are no longer available for Montreal radio stations as BBM now relies on the Portable People Meter (PPM) technology to measure ratings in Montreal.
More recently, the station's branding has been extended to sister stations CKOF-FM in Gatineau, CKOY-FM in Sherbrooke, CFEL-FM in Quebec City and CKOB-FM in Trois-Rivières. However, CKOF-FM, CKOY-FM & CKOB-FM dropped them in

CIOK-FM, better known as K100, is an FM radio station broadcasting in the Greater Saint John area of New Brunswick, Canada. The station currently carries a contemporary hit radio format programmed from sister station, CKCW-FM in Moncton. Prior to July 2009, it aired an Adult Contemporary format until changing to contemporary hit radio.
The format change happened a little after the same time cousin station CFQM-FM in Moncton changed from an Adult Contemporary format, to a Classic Hits format in July 2009.
K100 was being programmed out of Moncton and in order to cut costs, MBS decided that instead of flipping K100 to a classic hits format (probably since sister stations CJYC-FM and CFBC carry formats similar to classic hits) they would change the format to a contemporary hit radio format to more effectively compete with rival CHWV-FM. CIOK-FM's switch to contemporary hit radio joined sister station CKCW-FM in Moncton, which moved from top 40 to hot AC by that same time. Nielsen BDS later moved the station to the Canadian hot adult contemporary panel after the flip of this station to top 40.

KOMA (92.5 FM) is an American radio station licensed to serve the community of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It is among a cluster of stations in the market owned by Tyler Media.
KOMA broadcasts a classic hits music format featuring popular songs from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

The call letters were changed once again in 1973 to KKNG while owned by Swanson Broadcasting. The easy listening format remained in place until the early 1990s. The owners at the time, Wilks Schwartz Broadcasting, determined they wanted to take the station more toward an adult contemporary format to compete with KMGL.
The KOMA call letters made the transition to 92.5 FM on June 22, 1992, after Chicago-based Diamond Broadcasting (then owner) entered a local marketing agreement with Wilks

KOMO (1000 AM) is a radio station based in Seattle, Washington. Its format is primarily news. From 2003 to 2008, it was also the flagship station of the Seattle Mariners Radio Network. A 50,000 watt clear-channel station, KOMO can be heard across much of the Western United States and as far north as Fort McMurray, Alberta at night.
In July 1926, KOMO was founded on Harbor Island as KGFA 980 by Birt F. Fisher, whose lease on Seattle radio station KTCL was about to run out, and the Fisher brothers of Fisher Flouring Mills (no relation), who had been on the island since 1911. In preparation for the switch to the new station, he changed KTCL's call letters to KOMO. In December, his lease ended, and he took the call letters with him to KGFA. KOMO 980's first broadcast was December 31, 1926. Studios moved to Downtown in 1927. The station also began a long-running affiliation with NBC that year as well, primarily with the Red Network, but also with the short-lived west coast Orange Network from 1931 to 1933. Over the following years, KOMO's frequency would go from 980 to 1080, back to 980, down to 920, up to 970, then back to 920, and settled at 950 after the NARBA frequency shakeup in
KSLZ, "Z107.7", is a Top 40 Mainstream FM radio station in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. The Clear Channel Communications outlet broadcasts at 107.7 MHz with an ERP of 100 kW. Its transmitter is located in Shrewsbury, a suburb of St. Louis.
KSLZ debuted on the air in 1968 as KACO, which aired an AC/MOR format until a fire took the station off the air in January 1970. Two months later in March 1970, the station returned to air and changed call letters to KGRV, "Music for Groovy Adults," offering a more upbeat AC format, which lasted until 1972, when once again changed call letters to KKSS "Kiss 108" but retained its AC format. By 1974 KKSS switched formats to Country but this move did not last and by 1975 switched formats to a R&B format dubbed "Black in Stereo". In February 1979, KKSS altered its R&B format and adopted the moniker "Studio 108," with a hybrid Disco-R&B format, competing with WZEN "Disco-100 @100.3 (now KBWX, another Clear Channel station).
In June 1979 the calls were changed to KMJM as "Majic 108." Majic 108 wanted to cater to the Black & White audiences as a hybrid R&B/Disco/Top 40 station (a forerunner to the Rhythmic contemporary format). The station was
KTWV is a commercial radio station located in Los Angeles, California, broadcasting to the Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside–San Bernardino and Ventura County areas on 94.7 FM. KTWV airs a hybrid Smooth AC radio format branded as "94.7 The Wave".
From the late 1960s until 1987, the 94.7 frequency was home of KMET, a very popular album-oriented rock station owned by Metromedia. Prior to KMET, the station was called KLAC-FM. The station's ratings were high until the early 1980s when it lost ground to the competition. Many observers believe the station's ratings struggles were in large part caused by embracing the advice of New York music consultants and abandoning its identity as the "Soundtrack for Southern California." Specifically, it abandoned the spontaneity of having disc jockeys pick the music to be played on the air. Together with reduced advertising budgets, this resulted in significant ratings drops.
Metromedia sold its TV stations in 1986 and restructured and became known as Metropolitan Broadcasting. By the end of 1986, the rock format on KMET had very low ratings and as a result, the format would end on February 14, 1987.
The station changed to a New Age Music/Soft

92.9 MHz, Saugerties, New York was added to the FCC's Table of Allotments in June 1998. The allotment was applied for and won by then-WRNQ/WKIP/WTND owner Eric Straus. In its preparation to reach the air, its tower site changed from WDST's original tower in Lake Katrine to a defunct AT&T microwave relay tower site in the Town of Kingson, given that a feasibility study showed that from the former very little signal would reach the main target market of Poughkeepsie.
On September 15, 1999, the allotment was assigned the call letters WRKW, signed on for testing that October 23, and made a full launch on November 1, 1999. WRKW's launch format was a Classic Hits format called Quality Rock which was automated and jockless outside of the syndicated Bob & Tom morning show. Later a voicetracked PM drive jock and the syndicated

Banks, who would serve as president and general manager of WGPR and its sister TV station (founded in 1975) until his death in 1985. Under the ownership of the Masons, WGPR would transition to chiefly African-American-oriented programming of urban contemporary, R&B, soul, and gospel music, with

KBFF (95.5 FM, "Live 95-5") is an Mainstream Top 40 radio station licensed to Portland, Oregon, USA, and serving the Portland area. The station is currently owned by Alpha Broadcasting.
KBFF's history can be traced back to its early days as KGMG from 1960 to 1965 and as KXL-FM when it offered a beautiful music/easy listening format (as Stereo 95) beginning in June 1965, which lasted for the next 25 years. Beginning in 1990, the station spent the next 9 years flipping between various degrees of adult contemporary formats, including stints of soft vocals "K95.5" and "Lite 95.5 FM" (1990-1993), Hot AC "Star 95.5" (1993-1994), all-70's "95 KXL" (1994-1996), 70's/80's hits "MusicRadio 95 KXL" (1996), Hot AC "Mix 95.5" (1996-1997) and AAA "95.5 FM" (1997-1999). This changed on March 26, 1999, at 5:00 PM, when Paul Allen bought the station and altered its focus to Rhythmic Top 40, becoming KXJM, "Jammin' 95.5", the market's first Rhythmic-based station. Jammin's first song was "Changes" by 2Pac.
Jammin' enjoyed ratings success for 9 years. While never reaching number one in the Arbitron ratings, it was still favored among teen and young adult listeners, beating out Mainstream Top 40 KKRZ

KCBS-FM is a radio station in Los Angeles, California broadcasting to the Greater Los Angeles area on 93.1 FM. KCBS-FM airs an adult hits music format branded as "Jack-FM".
Unlike other radio stations of similar format, the Los Angeles Jack FM playlist runs a fairly focused playlist of popular classic rock and Alternative Rock tracks. Currently, the station has no air staff save for Tami Heide with her "Jacktivities" (events and whatever announcements deemed worthy by "jack"). Unlike most other stations in this format, the call sign no longer includes any form of the word "Jack," opting instead to hold over calls from a previous format. This is similar to its FM sister station in New York, WCBS-FM, which had maintained its WCBS calls during its run as "Jack FM."
Although Jack proclaims that the station is run "in a dumpy little building in beautiful downtown Culver City", KCBS-FM was actually at the intersection of Venice Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, about ½ mile north of Culver City.
The station signed on in 1948 as KNX-FM. KNX-FM was a simulcast of sister station KNX until the mid 1960s. The radio station, along with other CBS-owned FM radio stations aired a

WBBM (780 kHz) is an all-news radio station in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Owned by CBS Radio, the station broadcasts on a clear channel and is an affiliate of the CBS Radio Network. The station's studios are located in the combined CBS Radio facility at Two Prudential Plaza in the Loop neighborhood, and the transmitter is located in Itasca, Illinois.
Since August 1, 2011, WBBM's programming has been simulcast over sister station WCFS-FM (105.9 MHz.). The FM station's call letters were retained and should not be confused with WBBM-FM (96.3 MHz.), a heritage rhythmic contemporary station; WCFS's former adult contemporary format was retained in an automated form over their HD2 subchannel.
The station traces its history to 1911, when Leslie and Ralph Atlass, owners of the Mallory Battery Company of Lincoln, Illinois began an amateur spark station. In 1924, it received a commercial license and was assigned the frequency of 1330 kHz. It also received its current call letters, which stand for World's Best Battery Maker. In later years, an alternate meaning, "We Broadcast Better Music," was created.
The Atlasses sold their battery company in 1924 to devote their full attention to WBBM, and
CIBK-FM (98-5 VIRGIN, formerly Vibe 98.5) is a contemporary hit radio station based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Astral Media outlet operates at 98.5 MHz FM with an effective radiated power of 100 kW.
CIBK is currently ranked #4 according to the Fall 2011 PPM Data report released by BBM Canada.
The station received approval by the CRTC in 2001. When CIBK made its debut in 2002 as Vibe 98.5, they thought they would become the city's first R&B/hip hop outlet, but they were beaten to the punch by CKIS (KISS 96.9) by about a month. This would spark a format war in Calgary, with both stations making potshots at one another. On April 1, 2003, CKIS would bail out and abruptly change to the Jack FM format, leaving CIBK as the victor.
However, CIBK would also go through an evolution of its own as they transitioned to a rhythmic contemporary direction by 2003, and to their current mainstream top 40 direction by 2004. CIBK still played R&B/hip hop product (although at a reduced rate), they also incorporate pop and dance into the mix, in part due to its license with the CRTC that now requires the station to be programmed as a CHR outlet. Because CIBK was anticipated for years prior to its

The station's original call letters were KBCO from its sign-on on December 28, 1959 to 1964. Omn June 1, 1964 the station changed their call letters to KBRG. The KITS call letters arrived in February 1983 when the station adopted radio consultant Mike Joseph's Hot Hits Top-40 music format. Seven air personalities were recruited during a nationwide search from stations such as XETRA Tijuana, Mexico, Q104 Kansas City, 92x Columbus, Ohio, and WCAU-FM Philadelphia. The transplanted jocks underwent a "broadcasting bootcamp" for two weeks prior to launching the new Hot Hits format.

The station was referred to as "Hot Hits KITS" and followed the formula of a very short playlist with heavy repetition and fast-talking air personalities. The

WRVW is a radio station broadcasting on the FM band at 107.5 MHz, licensed to the city of Lebanon, Tennessee, but serving the nearby Nashville market. It is currently branded as 107.5 The River, broadcasting a Top 40 (CHR) format, and has become something of a heritage station for Top-40 music in middle Tennessee. It is owned by Clear Channel Communications and operates out of studios in the world-famous "Music Row" area. Its transmitter is located just north of downtown Nashville.
The station began its life on the 107.3 frequency as WCOR-FM in Lebanon, playing a country music format, on March 31, 1980. It soon branded itself US107 and changed its callsign to WUSW. This station proved to be short-lived; its absentee owner shut it down along with its AM sister, WCOR, in mid-1981. It was sold, moved to Nashville, and had its frequency changed to 107.5 in order to accommodate a power increase (The FCC ruled out a power increase for 107.3 because of its proximity to WQLT-FM in Florence, Alabama, which is also on 107.3).
The station received a complete overhaul when it moved to 107.5 FM in 1982, and went on to become one of Nashville's most successful radio stations. When the move was
KMNV (1400 AM) is a radio station in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota that airs a Spanish-language music and entertainment format.
The station began as WMIN in the summer of 1936, when Saint Paul furniture retailer Edward Hoffman began broadcasting at 1370 kHz. WMIN was reassigned to the 1400 kHz frequency in 1941 when an international treaty was negotiated to reduce interference between American radio stations and those from other regions. Noted jazz announcer Leigh Kamman started his career in broadcasting at the station around this time.
For many years, the station's transmitter and single tower have enjoyed an enviable location in the center of the metro area. Since at least the late 1970s/early 1980s, if not earlier, KMNV's technical plant has been located within a block of the city limits separating Minneapolis and St. Paul just east of the Mississippi River at 611 West Frontenac Place in St. Paul. It is plainly visible to travelers on Interstate Highway 94. The studios, at least in the 1970s and 1980s, were also located at this address.
WMIN set up a sister station, WMIN-FM at 99.5 MHz in 1945, which operated until being purchased by the owners of AM station WLOL and given
KWID (101.9 FM) is a Spanish language radio station out of Las Vegas and the station is branded as 101.9 La Buena.

In the early 70s, it flipped to KFM 102 under the call letters KFMS and played an automated Top 40 format. From 1978-1980, KFMS played a well-rounded AOR format.
On January 1, 1981, KFMS flipped to country still under the name KFM 102, drawing the ire of the AOR listeners. A month later, KENO FM-92 switched to AOR, and later became KOMP.
In early 2000, KFMS flipped to top 40/CHR 101.9 KISS FM, KFMS broadcasted Rick Dees' morning radio program.
The grouping of 102.7 FM KIIS in Los Angeles, 1220 AM KIIS in Santa Clarita, 97.7 FM KAVS in the Antelope Valley, 105.3 FM KYHT in Barstow/Victor Valley, and 101.9 FM KFMS in Las Vegas created a nearly continuous coverage of KIISFM between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. However, KFMS was branded as KISS instead of KIIS.
As time went on KFMS began adding more local DJs like Kate and Rick Kelly from 93.1 FM and after KYHT flipped to Y105 in 2001, KFMS discontinued simulcasting programming from KIIS in Los Angeles, became more Hip hop leaning, and began a local morning show hosted

WZLX (100.7 FM, Boston) is a classic rock radio station in the Boston, Massachusetts market. WZLX was one of the first classic rock FM stations in America.
What is now WZLX was originally WCOP-FM, notable for being one of the first FM stations to break simulcasting with its AM partner. WCOP-FM's separate programming was initially classical music and was one of the first FM stations in the region to (briefly) broadcast in FM stereo (the station would resume stereo programming in the early 1970s).
In 1965, WCOP (AM) had become Boston's affiliate for the NBC Radio Network, and WCOP-FM would often simulcast the hourly NBC Radio newscasts. By 1969, NBC Radio's weekend series Monitor had moved from WCOP to WCOP-FM, to allow the former to broadcast more hours of country music on the weekends.
The station went through a number of format changes (and later callsign changes), including beautiful music in the late 60s until 1973, oldies (as “Total Gold 101, WCOP-FM”, 1973–74), country 1974-76), AOR (as WTTK "TK101" 1976-78), beautiful music (as WHUE, 1979–85), and Top 40 (as WKKT "The Cat", for a few months in 1985).

In March 2009, CHUM switched to an all-news format known as CP24 Radio 1050, which operated primarily as an audio simulcast of CP24.
In April 2011, CHUM reverted to a sports format as TSN Radio 1050.
CHUM AM has been broadcasting continuously since 1945, through a variety of format changes. The station's history can be broken into eight distinct eras, as follows:
CHUM AM was founded by four Toronto businessmen, including Al Leary, a former sportscaster, who had been the station manager at CKCL for 14 years. CHUM received its licence in late November 1944 to operate a station with 1000 watts. CHUM launched as a dawn-to-dusk radio station on 28 October 1945, with John H.Q.

In 1998, NBC was acquired by MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., a broadcasting company owned by the PLDT's Beneficial Trust Fund. With the new ownership, DWFM's format would be changed in 1998 to become

(The main channel aired alternative rock, under the WKQX call sign, until changing to all-news in July 2011.) WIQI operates from studios at the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago.
101.1 FM was originally WMAQ-FM, co-owned by NBC with WMAQ. WMAQ-FM generally simulcast the AM station, eventually developing its own format. In 1974 WMAQ-FM switched to WJOI with an adult contemporary format. In late 1975, the station again changed call letters and format to WNIS-FM, carrying the NBC radio network's all news radio News and Information Service, which failed to compete against news stalwart WBBM. In 1977, the station repositioned itself as WKQX (the "X" stood for "eXperimental"), which played an album oriented rock format that was more adventurous than WDAI, but more accessible than WXRT. The
WNNX (100.5 FM, "Rock 100.5") is an Atlanta radio station that is owned and operated by Cumulus Media. The station broadcasts from the same building as its other Cumulus Atlanta sister stations WWWQ ("Q100"), W250BC ("Q100 20 @ 97-9"), WKHX ("Kicks 101-5"), and 99X in Sandy Springs near the Georgia Highway 400 and Interstate 285 interchange. WNNX's main transmitter is located in downtown Atlanta atop the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, the skyscraper well known for its reflective glass cylinder shape. The station airs a classic rock format.
The 100.5 frequency has been in metro Atlanta, licensed to College Park, since early 2001. Before then, the station was licensed to Anniston, Alabama as WHMA-FM, broadcasting as country music station "Alabama 100". (After the move, that callsign shifted to another existing station in that area becoming WHMA-FM "The Big 95", 95.5 MHz)
Interested in moving the station to Atlanta, owner Robert Gammon proposed that it be re-licensed to Sandy Springs, and remain at 100,000 watts ERP (class C). An agreement had already been made with the nearest co-channel station, WSSL-FM in upstate South Carolina for it to move further away, however that station was
DZTR (89.5 MHz in Naga City, Philippines), branded as Beat 89.5, is an FM radio station owned & managed by the Ateneo de Naga University under Manila Broadcasting Company. The station's studio is located on the 3rd Floor of Phelan Building, Ateneo de Naga University, Ateneo Avenue, Naga City, Camarines Sur.
The station first started broadcast as Yes FM 89.5 Naga in 1998 and later on, under the new management & ownership of the Ateneo de Naga University, was changed to The Beat 89.5 "The Metro's New Rhythm" in the early 2005. The Beat 89.5, on its early years, was branded more as a Rock Station rather than a Contemporary Hit Radio Station because it played mostly rock music mixed with a little Pop & RnB which confused the listeners in a way. The identity crisis of whether to be a Rock Station or a Contemporary Hit Radio Station went on until the last quarter of 2009. On January 4, 2010 the struggle ended and a new Beat was born - Beat 89.5 "The Big Switch" formally started broadcasting as a Contemporary Hit Radio Station.

WRCJ went on the air for the first time on January 8, 1948 as WDTR, and was Michigan's first educational FM station.

WDTR changed its call letters to WRCJ on July 1, 2004, and the station cut back its broadcast time to 8AM-5PM weekdays only. At the same time, the school district announced it would draft a contract with a third party to operate the station while the school district continued to own the frequency. Accordingly they put out an RFP (Request for Proposal), stipulating the station's format change to classical and jazz, to which several area organizations responded, including WUOM and WTVS. In

The station has had a hot adult contemporary format since 2004, and is owned by Astral Media.
As such, like for rival CHQM-FM being the only adult contemporary station in Vancouver, now the largest market with only one AC station, Vancouver is the largest market in Canada with only one hot AC station (which is CKZZ-FM) since French-language station CKOI-FM defected to hot AC most recently in Montreal, although Montreal's existing hot AC station is English-language CJFM-FM (also branded as Virgin Radio).
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved an application for a new commercial FM radio station at Vancouver on the frequency 95.3 MHz in early 1991.
CKZZ, known on-air with the moniker "Z 95.3", signed on air at 8 a.m. on May 23, 1991, and ran commercial-free until May 27. The first song played was Here We Go (Let's Rock & Roll) by C&C Music Factory. Founded by South

CKNW owned by Corus Entertainment, is the second highest-rated talk radio station in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It broadcasts on AM 980.
The station's content is based on news and current events. It features call-in shows with mostly Vancouver-based hosts.
CKNW is currently the #3 listened to radio station in Vancouver with a 9.4% share, according to 2012 BBM spring report.
CKNW began in New Westminster, BC, on August 15, 1944 at its original frequency of 1230 AM, under the ownership of Bill Rea's International Broadcasting Company.

Despite the low power, the transmitter's mountaintop location carries a long distance. The station was silent.silent. Then on December 19, 2011, WNGA returned to the air stunting with a Christmas Music temporary format.
The station was founded in 1993 by Charles Smithgall as WHEL; in 1998, it was acquired by Jacor, which was sold to Clear Channel Communications a year later. At one point an oldies station, the station soon became a simulcast of WGST, and later a simulcast of WWVA-FM (as WVWA). The necessity of the WWVA simulcast was often debated, as the residents of the Georgia mountains did not understand why a Spanish pop station was needed more than a news station.
In 2005, the station was sold to Sorenson Southeast Radio, and was off-air for several months. Upon return to the air, the station held a listener poll to determine the station's format; a rock AC format was chosen. The station initially reclaimed the WHEL call letters, but on November 1, 2006, it became WZGA. The station changed its call letters to WNGA in

CBQT-FM is a Canadian radio station. It is the CBC Radio One station in Thunder Bay, Ontario, broadcasting at 88.3 FM, and serves all of Northwestern Ontario through a network of relay transmitters.
The station was launched in 1973 on the AM band as CBQ 800. The 800 frequency had been vacated earlier that year by the defunct CJLX. CBQ Radio's inaugural morning broadcast in December 1973 made it the second city in Ontario to get a regional broadcast centre. The call sign CBQ was a last minute choice by station managers since CBL and CBT were already taken. (CBL for Lakehead or CBT for Thunder Bay). Instead the letter Q was chosen for Quetico Provincial Park near Atikokan, which is west of Thunder Bay.
Prior to CBQ's launch, CBC Radio programming aired on private affiliate CFPA 1230.
CBQ moved to the FM band as CBQT-FM in 1990. The CBQ-FM call sign was already in use by the CBC Stereo sister station on 101.7 FM. Some of the relay transmitters for CBQT previously rebroadcast CBL in Toronto.

KSTP (1500 AM; "1500 ESPN Twin Cities") is the flagship station of Hubbard Broadcasting, which also owns several other television and radio stations across the United States and some other properties. It is the ESPN Radio affiliate for Minneapolis-St. Paul.
KSTP's AM signal at 1500 kHz is the product of a 1928 merger between two other Twin Cities stations. WAMD ("Where All Minneapolis Dances") and KFOY had each started broadcasting a few years earlier. Stanley E. Hubbard's WAMD went on the air for the first time on February 13, 1925, originally broadcasting live dance music from a local ballroom. It is claimed that this was the first radio station to be completely supported by running paid advertisements. KFOY radio first took to the air on March 12, 1924 in St. Paul.
Twin Cities stations were experimenting with frequency-modulated transmissions in the late 1930s. KSTP engineers had started running W9XUP at 29.95 MHz by 1938. This "ultra-short-wave" station continued regular broadcasts until at least 1944. Other Twin Cities stations also experimented with FM, but not as extensively. WCCO operated a low-power station, but it apparently went off the air quickly (WCCO did not sign on
KSZR (i97.5 FM, i97.5") is a CHR formatted radio station serving Tucson, Arizona, USA. It is licensed to broadcast from Oro Valley, Arizona, (a northern suburb of Tucson), but its reception is generally above average in most areas of Tucson. It is owned by Cumulus Media.
KSZR has gone through a variety of format changes in the past. Its first days on the air as KRKN were as a satellite based rock station.
In 1994 KRKN's call letters were changed to KCDI. As KCDI, the station was known as "CD Country" and played satellite delivered country music.
In 1996 KCDI became KSJM, and was known as "Power 97.5". Power played a mix of hip hop, Spanish, and Top 40 music, (today's Rhythmic Top 40) and received high ratings, which competed with KOHT.. Power was the first station in Tucson to play Rhythmic Top 40 over the FM airwaves.
After about two years, Citadel Broadcasting purchased the station from locally owned Slone Broadcasting. In 1998, Citadel turned Power 97.5 to a smooth jazz station. It was known as 97-5 The Oasis. The call letters became KOAZ.
Due to low ratings and a lack of interest, the smooth jazz format was scrapped for a Country format known as "Cat Country" in 2001. This
TruTV (formerly Court TV) is an American cable television network owned by Turner Broadcasting, a subsidiary of Time Warner. The network launched as Court TV in 1991, changing to TruTV in 2008. Its programming has traditionally been live homicide trial coverage and other criminal justice programming; however, the network has branched out into more "caught on video" reality programs, or as TruTV calls it, "actuality" television. The channel has been criticized for allegedly faking their reality shows, including Storage Hunters, Southern Fried Stings, Hardcore Pawn, & Operation Repo, which used paid actors working from scripts.
TruTV was originally known as Court TV and featured continuous live trial coverage, with analysis by anchors. The network came into its own during the Menendez brothers first trial and later the O.J. Simpson murder trial. It was led by law writer Steven Brill.
The network was born out of two competing projects to launch cable channels with live courtroom proceedings, the American Trial Network from Time Warner and American Lawyer Media and In Court from Cablevision and NBC. Both projects were present at the National Cable Television Association in June 1990.

MSC was primarily a commuter college with on-campus housing for only about 25% of its 1966 student population. Most of the commuters and off-campus housing students left the campus at the end of their classes and seldom returned to participate in the wide variety of campus activities available. A commuter student from Clifton, New Jersey, Ed Helvey, felt that a college-based FM radio station could help better connect the commuter and off-campus

WBRU is a commercial alternative rock radio station in Providence, Rhode Island that broadcasts on 95.5 FM. It was the first student-owned-and-operated campus radio station in the United States when it started as the Brown Network at Brown University in 1936. Its transmitter is located in Providence.
Founded by two freshmen at Brown, David Borst and George Abraham, the first broadcast of the Brown Network was transmitted on November 30, 1936, from Abraham’s room. He originally conceived of the idea as a way to share his record collection and serve as a personal disk jockey for his friends. By the next year, he had installed wires through the trees on campus, assigning students in various dormitories to act as “section managers” who would receive the signal on their receiver and transmit it to the rest of the building.
The New England Hurricane of 1938 destroyed most of the wires in the trees and Borst and Abraham were forced to move the wires into the steam tunnels beneath the campus. In February 1940, the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System was formed by 13 colleges, and it held its first meeting at Brown.
In 1962, the Brown Broadcasting Service (BBS) was established as a separate

The first traces of campus radio activity at the UAlbany campus appeared in the 1940s when the University Radio Council was formed. This organization made initial plans for the creation of a campus station tentatively called WCFA (College For Teachers, UAlbany's first incarnation) and WSCA. In 1962, the college became a University in the State University of New York system. WSUA debuted on February 22, 1963 as a "carrier current" AM radio station, where the broadcast transmissions are propagated via and confined to the electrical wiring of the college campus. The frequency was 640 kHz. At the time, a school newspaper account specified the station's power at eight watts.

Palmer, owner of WOC, bought WHO, and the two stations operated together as WOC-WHO until a new 50,000-watt transmitter near Mitchellville began operating on November 11, 1933. (WOC ceased broadcasting that day but returned on another frequency a year later.) WHO moved from 1000 AM to the current 1040 AM on March 29, 1941, as a result of the North American Radio

KTRM (88.7 FM, "The Edge") is an FM non-commercial/educational radio station operated by students at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri. The station features alternative music, with specialty shows hosted in the evenings and on weekends. KTRM broadcasts at 2,500 watts power, covering Adair County and rural areas within a 25-mile radius.
KTRM also streams online using QuickTime.
KTRM was originally envisioned in 1975, when the Department of Language and Literature sought to establish a 100,000 watt FM station. The University, however, decided to pursue an unlicensed operation, regulated by Part 15 of FCC code. Under the letters KNEU (for Northeast Missouri State University, Truman's previous name), the station debuted in October 1975 at 1600 AM. Because the power levels allowed by Part 15 only resulted in a small coverage area, transmitters were purchased for each residence hall.
The reception of the 1600 AM signal was not ideal in several of the brick and mortar halls. In February 1976, KNEU moved to 580 AM and rewired the transmitters in each building. In the late 1970s, KNEU added FM coverage, but students could only receive the 102.1 FM signal on-campus via Cable
KUT FM 90.5 is a listener-supported public radio station owned and operated by faculty and staff of the University of Texas at Austin. It is the National Public Radio member station for central Texas. Occasionally there is confusion between KUT and KVRX 91.7 FM, the University's student-run radio station, because both are owned by the University of Texas and are based out of the UT campus.
KUT's main transmitter broadcasts at an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts and is located just west of Lake Austin in Westlake Hills.
A second station, KUTX, serving San Angelo at 90.1 MHz, was sold to Texas Tech University in 2010 in part because Angelo State University had become part of the Texas Tech University System. The call letters were changed from KUTX to KNCH. The KUTX call letters now apply to KUT's repeater station in Somerville, broadcasting to the Bryan/College Station area on 88.1 FM. On August 23, 2012, the UT System Board of Regents voted to move forward to purchase KXBT-FM from Border Media Business Trust, broadcasting on 98.9 FM. Pending FCC approval, KUT intends to rename the station KUTX. KUT 90.5 will focus on news and talk while KUTX 98.9 will be an all-music

For many years the station aired a middle-of-the-road/adult standards music format best known for its ownership by the quirky Hy Levinson, who insisted that WCAR air only "good music" and refused to allow anything even remotely resembling rock and roll on his station's playlist.
Levinson would eventually relax his anti-rock stance when it became evident that the conservative "good music" approach wasn't making him enough money. By 1970, "W-Car" had contemporized somewhat and become a personality-oriented Adult Top 40 music station (what would today be called Hot AC), complete with new jingles and a "hipper" image based around the slogan "W-Car Cares About Detroit."

Since then, WPGH is now the call letters of the Fox TV station in Pittsburgh. The push to get an FM station began in the fall of 1977 when Pitt requested a space on the commercial FM broadcast band. Because the Federal Communications Commission was concerned that the move of WPTS to FM might set an unfavorable precedent for other non-commercial stations seeking to make a similar move, Pitt had to reassure the FCC that WPTS was a unique case. As a result, WPTS was granted a class D license with a radiating

WZAT (102.1 FM) is a radio station in Savannah, Georgia. The station is owned by Cumulus Media, is licensed to Savannah, Georgia, and is airing a sports format with programming from ESPN Radio.
102.1, known as WZAT, signed on in 1971 as a completely automated Top 40 station with the locally popular "Breakfast With Burl" program as the only exception. Airstaff was gradually added, and between a strong AM station (WSGA), and a slightly lighter top 40 station in the late 70's as WSGF 95.5, a real format war ensued. By 1986, 95SGF had become modern-day rocker WIXV, and AM 1400 had quickly moved out of the format during the death of AM top 40 in 1982. In the 1980s-early 90's, "Z102" was the dominant (and often only) Top 40 station in Savannah. Stations like 99.7 WHTK, Kiss 98.7, Wave 97, and Blu 92 all tried and (mostly) failed in taking on the popular Z102.
In 1992, the station was sold and flipped to Modern Rock as "WZAT (or later, Z102) - Savannah's Rock and Roll Radio" and, alternately, "Z102" and was a very popular Alternative rock station. Phoenix Media Partners sold the station to Cumulus in 1997. Upon the sale to Cumulus, the station repositioned as Top 40. The station has since
