ROGERS COMMUNICATIONS is buying Top 40 CHBN (91.7 THE BOUNCE)/EDMONTON from CTV GLOBEMEDIA's CHUM RADIO for an undisclosed price. ROGERS owns Ethnic CKER (101.7 WORLD FM) and Alternative CHDI (SONIC 102.9) in the EDMONTON market.
"ROGERS has been active in the EDNMONTON radio market for four years and we're keen to expand our local presence," said ROGERS MEDIA Radio CEO PAUL SKI. "The acquisition of BOUNCE will strengthen ROGERS' position in this important young adult demographic and will allow us the opportunity to offer a more enhanced service to both our listeners and our advertisers."
