92.9 Jack FM launched in December 1962 is a Dartmouth based Adult Contemporary Hit station located in Halifax Regional Municipality and owned by Rogers Media. Playing whatever! Whenever! is the slogan of the 92.9 Jack FM (legally known as CFLT-FM) Initially launched as CFDR-AM on December 5, 1962 by Robert L. Stanfield on 790 KHz with an ERP of 5,000 watts; Jack 92.9 was originally owned by Radio Dartmouth Ltd. and broadcasted quality music, local news and sports programing. In 1968 CJCH and CFDR run into an agreement that would benefit the companies winning more advertisers. CFDR subscribed to the Broadcast News in 1969. After the shifting of studios in March 1971 the frequency of the station was changed from 790 to 680 KHz in 1978. Newfoundland Capital Corp. Ltd purchased the AM and FM stations, CFDR and CFRQ respectively in 1987 from C. A. Patterson after the approval of CRTC on June 10, 1987. The changes such as news budget, format change from easy listening to contemporary music and a couple other on administrative positions were also due to entirely change the 92.9 Jack FM in 1987.
