CHML-AM Ontario - CHML 900 AMAM900 CHML is a Hamilton, ON based news and talk radio owned by Corus Entertainment. The station traces its roots back to 1926 when the channel was launched after the self-censorship on political issues was embraced by the CKOC – Hamilton’s first radio. It all started from CKOC’s silence on the repealing of the law that barred the sale of liquor in the province. Herbert Haslam Slack, the owner of the channel had no interest even to highlight the issue let alone debate on it. The censors were creating a stir among the members of First United Church Congregation. George Less and others on April 28, 1927 founded a company called Maple Leaf Radio Co. Ltd. to fight the bias. 222 King Street East was chosen for the studios and offices of CFML. AM900 started its broadcasts on a frequency of 880 kHz using a low-power 50-watts transmitter. By the end of the year 1927 the station became CHML. Until 1930 CHML had to share time with CHCS and CKOC however, in 1930 both moved to 1120 kHz leaving 880 kHz for the Canada, Hamilton & Maple Leaf’s radio. 1010 kHz became the new frequency in Sep 1933 and wattage was incremented to 100 w in 1935. It subscribed to the British United Press news service in 1940.
