More About Boom 99.7
After facing some retaliation from Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages James Moore in Nov 2008, 99.7 EZ Rock was launched on May 27, 2010 from Merivale Road in Nepean which was already a home to the sibling CKQB-FM. The format was switched from AC to Classic Hits and was rebranded as Boom on June 30, 2011. Following the acquisition of Astral by Bell, Corus in March 2013 reached a deal with Bell Media to acquire 100% ownership of CJOT and CKQB, both based in Ottawa; the deal was closed on Jan 31, 2014.
