Vernon’s number one choice for radio is growing again!

Introducing…Vernon’s NEW 107.5 Beach Radio playing the greatest hits of the 80’s and 90’s

107.5 is already Vernon and the North Okanagan’s ‘big’, full-service radio station with a large, qualified audience.  Today we are building upon our continued service to the community, commitment to local news and sports by focusing our music on the most popular music of the 80’s 90’s and early 2000’s.  

Beach Radio will play artists like Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Queen, AC/DC, Michael Jackson, Tom Petty, and much more.  It is sure to be Vernon’s #1 pre-set in the car; you won’t be able to help yourself!   Couple this with the best and most experienced radio personalities, local news updates presented by experienced news anchors, award winning community service and play by play coverage of the BCHL’s Vernon Vipers.

And there’s more!   Vernon’s NEW 107.5 Beach Radio is returning to our original call sign: CJIB.  Since the station launched in 1947 the name CJIB was synonymous with radio excellence and was known across the province as a leader in information, programming and community service.  The entire team at Vernon’s NEW 107.5 Beach Radio is committed to upholding this tradition.   

As Vernon’s original radio station, we are committed to producing entertaining and informative radio for our listeners; great service to our community and results for our advertisers.  We are the biggest broadcast team in the city and we remain fully committed to this community.  To the listeners and advertisers in Vernon and the North Okanagan we say THANK YOU for making us #1 for over 70 years!

So… more of the same cookie cutter crap, old tired music, and auto DJ as usual. Who cares!!?? Man radio sucks.

I forgot to mention.. it sounds like they are saying “Bitch Radio” quite often. I can’t believe this.

i listened to your station all the time in car in my shop ect. last night i was in my shop listening to your station will be finding a new station

I don’t fully “get” this latest move by Pattison. Unlike the Kelowna bottom feeder, Q103.1, Kiss 107.5 was a perennial champion, money maker of the airwaves for years and years, the legacy of the late GM Patrick Nicol. It was Patrick’s radio station that he carefully built. It’s a two station market, anyhow, so all Pattison has to do is not run it into the ground. Sometimes, you have to leave well enough, alone ? By the way, the beaches in Vernon are just as polluted as Kelowna’s, so, what does that tell you ! LOL

What an uninspired station and playlist. This is the BEST they could come up with??

I’ve attempted to listen to the Kelowna Beach, and this one is just as much of a mess.

Andy is right… Radio (now) sucks.. crap like this isn’t going to keep people listening and just digging the grave of terrestrial radio even deeper and quicker.

We have always enjoyed CJIB and can recall many great DJs over the years starting with Don Warner. The best of the best however was Frank Martina. Frank was perfect for the morning show and a great guy to start the day with. We really enjoy the oldies every Sat and are so glad he came out of retirement to do the show. After 69 years living in the Okanagan we moved to Alberta but we do still listen to the station over the internet.

are most of you former radio people who just weren’t good enough to stay in the business so then you decided to wake up every morning and take a bitter pill?

December 23, 2017 - 12:38 pm


As one who is not and has never been in the business please let me assure you (rocker) that people that are critical of what radio has become are not taking bitter pills. They are simply listening to a product that has in many cases lost the audiences of days gone bye. Before you start laying blame on generational changes, internet, and global warming lets keep it real (with HOs) permission. Its about money. Its about corporate greed. Its about trying to do less with less. Its about paying peanuts and somehow winding up with monkeys.
Cheapskate owners that dont give a rats ass about the audiences because advertisers arent aware or dont care about the lousy product. As long as the ad revenue maintains with less and less expense to produce its a win for Pattison
