Quebec FM Trio Switching To Talk
June 22, 2012 at 3:54 AM (PT)
Three COGECO DIFFUSION stations in QUEBEC will move from simulcasting French Top 40 CKOI/MONTREAL to relaying French Talk CHMP (98,5 FM)/MONTREAL, according to CARTT.CA's STEVE FAGUY. A press release announcing the change set the flip for AUGUST 20th.
The stations flipping formats include CKOY/CHERBROOKE, CKOB/TROIS-RIVIERES, and CKOF/GATINEAU-OTTAWA. The three are all former French Talk outlets that moved to FM and adopted the hybrid talk-AC "SOUVENIRS GARANTIS" format in the mid-2000s before flipping to the CKOI simulcast last year.
