NEWS 1130, Vancouver, Celebrates 20th Anniversary


After joining the airwaves in February 1996 as Vancouver’s first 24-hour news station, NEWS 1130 continues to be the Lower Mainland’s go-to source for breaking news, traffic, weather, and sports. Beginning Friday, Feb. 5, the station will kick off a month-long celebration to commemorate its 20 years on the air.

Throughout the month of February, NEWS 1130 listeners will be treated to a walk down memory lane as on-air hosts dive into the biggest stories of the past 20 years and welcome former hosts, staff, and special guests in-studio to share their favourite memories. Plus, the NEWS 1130 Insider Club will be giving away gift packs and prizes all month long, including a chance to win 20,000 Insider points.

Additionally, on Saturday, March 12, NEWS 1130 will host an open house, with guided tours departing every 10 minutes from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the studio.
