CKEC-FM is a Canadian radio station. Owned by Hector Broadcasting, the station airs a hot adult contemporary format on 94.1 FM in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.

History[edit]

The station has been on the air since December 23, 1953. Originally broadcasting at 1230 AM, it moved to 1320 kHz in 1960.

In 2006, the station was licensed by the CRTC to convert to FM.[1] As of December 11, 2007, CKEC launched its FM station, 94.1 at 9:41 a.m. Simulcasting remained on both the AM and FM stations for 90 days, before converting entirely to FM.

The transmitter tower is situated on Mount Thom.

On October 28, 2011, Hector Broadcasting applied to the CRTC for a new radio station which will broadcast a mix of classic rock and classic hits with some contemporary rock. If approved, the new station will operate at 97.9 MHz. [2] Hector Broadcasting received a licence to operate a new station on May 9, 2012. See: CKEZ-FM.

Hector Broadcasting has yet to make any headway with launching CKEZ-FM as it currently remains at a standstill.
