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 programming from 6 a.m. to 9a.m. and eventually from 6a.m. to 5p.m.
The CKSP call sign was changed by new owners in 1991.
Switch to FM
The move from 1450AM to the new 98.5FM frequency took place sometime in 2010.
