Evanov makes changes in Ottawa, Montreal areas

Post by ChrisWL1980 » Mon May 03, 2021 7:01 pm

"Jewel" 98.5 in Ottawa and 106.7 in the Montreal suburbs have been relaunched as "Lite," with a slightly more contemporary (but still soft) playlist similar to the U.S. "Breeze" stations. Meanwhile, the "Jewel" stations in Clarence/Rockland (92.5) and Hawkesbury (107.7) were both flipped to "Hot Country."

So far, the Jewels in the GTA (88.5) and Brantford/Hamilton (92.1) remain untouched.

The Jewel stations were one of the last places to hear traditional Beautiful Music programming, for an hour each evening. Their sister station CFMB 1280 in Montreal (which I get pretty well in northern Washtenaw County at night, better than 690 CKGM actually) also carries a few hours of Beautiful Music after midnight some nights.
