97.7 The Beach aka CHGB-FM is a Wasaga Beach Classic Adult Contemporary station owned by Bayshore Broadcasting. CRTC received the application of Bayshore seeking the permissions for a FM in 2005 but was denied in October. The rejection didn’t hinder Bayshore to apply again and ultimately get the approval from CRTC on Sep 13, 2006; 200 w was the ERP and 97.7 MHz was the new frequency. Classic AC was the format selected by the radio that will offer soft rock, pop, dance, oldies and Jazz etc. It would dig classics from 60s, 70s and 80s. 18 live news bulletins per week will be also included in lineup. After some testing done in April 2007 The Beach 97.7 FM officially went on air on May 18, 2007 from its studios located at 1383 Mosley Street; Classic Hits was the format.
