Kamloops station applies for FM slot


Kamloops, B.C. - The first AM radio station to go on the air in Kamloops wants to migrate to the FM band.

CFJC will go before the CRTC in May to ask for the switch.

The station owned by the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group has been on the AM band since it began broadcasting 75 years ago.

But Rick Arnish of the Pattison Group says with changes in radio audiences, music formats and technology in recent years, it's time to go FM.

The company has applied to move from 550 on the AM band to 100.1 on the FM band.

The station will retain its country music format.

If approved, the change would be made this fall.
