News Talk 770 AM  Calgary, ABNews Talk 770 (CHQR) is a Calgary based AM station that broadcasts News, Talk Sports programming and other generalist content. It was founded by Bentley Broadcasting Co. Ltd with 810 kHz transmitter in 1964. CHQR is the abbreviation of “Calgary Has Quality Radio”. The plan was to bring quality music to quality people with limited commercials.  The station originally broadcasting at 810 AM was launched on August 15, 1964 and switched to the current frequency (770 AM) in 1985. In 1970 the channel was sold to Western Broadcasting Co. Ltd and Ted Soskin who was the former owner joined the company as a member of board of directors. At the time of transfer of ownership the station operated with the corporate name, Radio QR Ltd. In 1999 after a series of changes in ownership and shuffles in share, again some shifts were done following the split of Western International Communications’ assets between Corus Radio Company and CanWest Global and Shaw Communications. Owing to a hearing in April 2000, the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) gave the approval of WIC Radio by Corus and thus came CHQR Calgary under the ownership Corus.
