Welcome to AM 730 CHMJ Radio station. It is a broadcast radio station in Canada. It is located at Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is providing Traffic, News and Weather programs etc.
On February 3, 1955, CKLG, owned by Lions Gate Broadcasting Limited, started transmitting AM bands from 1070 kHz with a 1000 watt transmitter. Originally, both the studio and the transmitter were located in North Vancouver.
The radio station was controlled by the Gordon Gibson family, who were involved in the logging business. (Gordon Gibson, Sr., was known as “The Bull of the Odds”)In 1958, the station changed the frequencies from 1070 kHz to 730 kHz and increased the power to 10,000 watts.
The transmitter site was moved from North Vancouver to the Delta. The station was sold to Mofat Broadcasting Limited in 1961 and in 1964 launched the 99.3 MHz FM Bone Station, the original CKLG-FM (now CFX-FM).
In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, CKLG (also known as “LG73”) played a wide variety of contemporary music, which at the time was identified as one of the most popular radio stations in the Vancouver radio market.
In 1975, the station increased its power again, raising it to the current 50,000 watts. As the station’s popularity plummeted in the early 1990s, listeners switched to FM radio to listen to music.
In 1992, Crass Radio Company (now Cros Entertainment) bought the Vancouver Radio property in Mofat. From September 1993 to February 1994, Corus made a brief and unsuccessful attempt at a talk radio format.
The station returned to the hit music format, which continued for the next seven years despite new competition from the station CKZZ-FM. CKZZ originally started in 1991 as a rhythmic contemporary station before moving to the mainstream top 40 / CHR format in 1991.
