OZFM 94.7 St. John’s, NL is a Hot AC station launched on June 15, 1977 in St. John’s. CHOZ was born after the division of Newfoundland Broadcasting Co. Ltd in 1977; the split resulted in two factions or companies one under the ownership of Donald C. Jamieson and the other owned by Geoffrey W. Stirling. CJON-TV and the company’s name “Newfoundland Broadcasting Co. was acquired by Stirling. The launch of the first private stereo FM was followed by a network of nine transmitters across the state. CHOZ was allowed to reduce country music and increase rock by CRTC. By 1980 the CHOZ became the most powerful and extensive commercial network with a wattage of 275,000 watts, completely stereo serving at least 95% of the population and providing them with world news, interview, concerts, community events and informational stuff. The change was made in the original and initial frequency, flipping from 93.9 MHz to 94.7 MHz owing to the signal interference issues between the OZFM 94.7 and CJON-TV.
