CRTC demanded reforms in technical aspects, performance and delivery however the The Dock would run with their original calls. In Feb 1980 the transfer of CKMP along with other channels was approved by CRTC from Midland-Penetang Broadcasting Ltd. and others to 93238 Canada Inc. an asset partially held through shares by Telemedia owner, Philippe de Gaspe Beaubien. With the purchase of CKFH and CJCL by Telemedia, CKMP started to pass newscasts to other Ontario siblings as was delivered to it.
The license grant for the broadcasting of hockey games and increase in ERP from 250 to 1,000 watts in Feb and Dec of 1984 were some major developments this year. CKMP in June 1992 was simulcasting the content produced at CFOR Orillia and the news format hosted by The Dock 104.1 FM now was Country. In the fall of 1993 the dial was changed to FM, frequency to 104.1 MHz and ERP to 129 watts while the call letters and branding was also rechristened as CICZ-FM and KICX Country. In January 1994 the radio was relaunched as CICZ-FM and received an increment in its wattage to 1,550 watts before the end of the year. On Aug 29, 1997 Larche Communications Inc. acquired the 104.1 FM Midland from Telemedia Communications Inc. and the wattage was increased in Dec to 9,170 watts followed by another increment in Oct 2000 changing it to 9,354 watts. CICZ applied for an increase in wattage in 2011 to 33,500 w but was disappointed after the denial of CRTC in June 2012.
