CKVV-FM is a new Canadian radio station broadcasting a new adult contemporary format on the frequency of 97.5 MHz/FM in Kemptville, Ontario.

History[edit]

On December 13, 2010, the Haliburton Broadcasting Group applied to operate a new FM radio station in Kemptville at 97.5 MHz. This application received CRTC approval on April 21, 2011.[1]

The station is Kemptville's first local commercial FM radio station. The station launched on February 27, 2012.[2]

It is also the third English-language AC station serving the National Capital Region; the others are CJMJ-FM and CJWL-FM.

On April 23, 2012 Vista Broadcast Group, which owns a number of radio stations in western Canada, announced a deal to acquire Haliburton Broadcasting, in cooperation with Westerkirk Capital.[3] The transaction was approved by the CRTC on October 19, 2012.[4]

Technical Issues[edit]

The station may receive interference from a 97 kilowatt radio station, WFRY, out of Watertown, New York.[5] There is also a low-power tourist information radio station in Ottawa known as CIIF-FM also operating at 97.5 MHz. CKKV-FM may cause interference with the Ottawa station as well.[6]
