History[edit]

On November 9, 2012, 7954689 Canada Inc. received approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate a new English language talk radio station in Montreal.[3] Steve Kowch was hired to run it.

The same company was also previously licensed to launch a new French-language talk radio station on 940 AM.[4]

The 600 kHz frequency in Montreal was previously occupied by CFCF and CIQC until it moved to 940 kHz as CINW in 1999 and then closed down in 2011.
