Incipiently, it was aired by the East Kootenay Broadcasting Ltd with a catchword of “The Voice of the Rockies”. The possession of the Drive switched time to time. Columbia Kootenay Broadcasting Co. Ltd. and EK Radio Ltd. are the former proprietors of the Canadian channel. In 2000, the Jim Pattison Group acquired the station with all its assets. Through September of 2011, the CRTC authorized the reformation of this radio from AM to FM with a frequency of 102.9 MHz.
