1310 News is an Ottawa based News and Talk format radio currently owned by Rogers Media. The establishment of the radio dates back to 1922 when Dr. George McKinley set up CKCO from studios at 272 Somerset Street West. Bly 1925 the 100 w station was airing on 690 kHz and moved to 840 kHz in Jan 1927 but returned to 690 kHz very next month. However, the frequencies kept changing until 1941 when 1310 AM was selected as its permanent dial. It became CBC ‘s Dominion affiliate in 1941. Southam acquired CKCO in 1949 and changed its calls to CKOY. At that time the channel was operating with an ERP of 5,000 and 1,000 w for day and nighttime respectively. Offices were relocated to 635 Richmond Road in 1954.

Wattage was increased to 50,000 w in 1963. CKEY Ltd. was allowed to acquire CKOY in 1978 contrary to the wishes of Moffat Communications which had been denied twice by the commission.
