CHOR-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts a soft adult contemporary format at 98.5 FM in Summerland, British Columbia. The station is owned by Bell Media and is branded as EZ Rock.

CHOR began as CKSP at 1450 AM in 1972 as a part-time satellite re-broadcaster of CKOK in Penticton. Okanagan Radio Limited put the station on the air to improve coverage to the north. The first manager of the station was Russ Mitton who was succeeded by Jim Hart who became Member of Parliament. The station originally broadcast local programing from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and eventually from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The CKSP call sign was changed by new owners in 1991.

On June 17, 2010, CHOR received approval by the CRTC to convert CHOR AM 1450 to the FM band at 98.5 MHz to broadcast an adult contemporary format targeting adults aged 18 to 54.[1]

The move from 1450 AM to the new 98.5 FM frequency took place sometime in 2010.
