More About Talk Radio AM640

On 26, Aug 1969 the power was incremented to 50,000 post the approval made in 1967. Slaight Broadcasting Ltd. became the owner on Jan 13, 1971. CFGM switched its frequency to 1320 kHz. In 1982 the station celebrated its 25th year on-air. Westcom Radio Group Ltd. acquired CFGM and CILQ from Slaight Communications Inc. in 1985. CRTC approved the 640 kHz as new frequency for CFGM on Oct 2, 1986, a competing application by CKMW was deferred. On Sep 16, 1988 it moved to 640 kHz officially after a brief test period – the channel was now entitled to a potential audience share of 3.5 million. Country music format was dropped by the channel and in result a Contemporary Hit station CHOG-AM took birth. In June 1992 the CHOG (Talk Radio AM640) later made another switch, the new format this time was a hybrid – a mix of modern Pop, rock and dance. On Oct 11, 1995 CHOG was rebranded as Talk 640. Shaw Communications (later Corus Entertainment) and CanWest Global Communications were approved by CRTC to purchase the assets of WIC Radio Ltd. The calls were changed to CFYI-AM on Nov 15, 1999 and was rebranded as Mojo Radio on April 23, 2001. The call letters were changed as CFMJ in Nov 2002.
