Rogers has reapplied to remove the CKKS 107.5 Chilliwack simulcast on CKKS-2 104.9 Vancouver and replace it with locally produced programming even though programming on CKKS-2 has technically originated in Vancouver for the past 20+ years.
Under the proposed arrangement CKKS 107.5 Chilliwack and CKKS-1 92.5 Abbotsford will become a new station focused on the Fraser Valley, while CKKS-2 104.9 in Vancouver will focus on the Vancouver market. Rogers has stated that the “hit music” format on 104.9 will be retained.
CKKS-2 104.9 Vancouver operates with 31,000 watts, while CKKS 107.5 Chilliwack operates with 640 watts and CKKS-1 92.5 Abbotsford operates with 2,600 watts.
A similar application by Rogers was rejected by the CRTC on July 6, 2020.
