CJAT-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts an adult contemporary format at 95.7 FM in Trail, British Columbia and is also heard in Castlegar at 90.3 FM and Grand Forks at 103.3 FM, including other rebroadcasters.

History[edit]

The station began broadcasting in 1933 and has changed many frequencies until its last AM frequency at 610 kHz (AM) in 1941. CFKC operates at 1340 kHz in Creston, British Columbia, which was launched in 1968. As of 1989, CFKC Creston became a full-time rebroadcaster of CJAT Trail.[1]

In 1994, the station received CRTC approval to convert CJAT Trail from the AM band to the FM band at 95.7 MHz.[2] On June 30, 2006, CJAT received approval to add new FM transmitters at Castlegar which would operate at 90.3 MHz and Grand Forks at 103.3 MHz.[3][4]

Over the years, CJAT went through various formats and ownerships and is currently owned by Bell Media, which rebranded the station with the EZ Rock format on October 5, 2011.
