On April 12, 1985, the CRTC approved an application by the CBC to amend the broadcasting licences for CBXH, CBDA and CBKI by changing the frequencies from 1450 to 1540; 1240 to 1560; and 1450 to 1350.[3] These AM transmitters were eventually converted to FM or shutdown.

FM conversions[edit]

  • On October 13, 2011, CBTK applied to convert CBRD 860 to 97.1 MHz.[4][5] The application was approved on December 15, 2011.[6] CBRD's callsign was replaced by CBTK-FM-1 once the flip occurred.
  • On August 16, 2013, CBTK-FM applied to relocate CBRJ 860 to 107.3 MHz.[7] This application was approved on October 31, 2013.[8]
  • On September 23, 2014, the CBC was approved to convert CBUI 740 to 102.5 MHz.[9]
  • On September 1, 2017, the CBC applied to convert CBUM to 91.3 MHz.[10] The CRTC approved the CBC's application to convert CBUM to 91.3 FM on November 17, 2017.[11]

Transmitter closures[edit]

On October 25, 2013 at the request of the CBC, the CRTC deleted low-power AM transmitter CBKR 740 in Parson,[12] as well another low-power AM transmitter CBWD 900 in Donald was also deleted. Radio One programming in these communities are available from adjacent transmitters CBXE-FM Golden and CBUQ-FM Radium Hot Springs, the closest Radio One transmitters to Parson.

Split of CBYK-FM into separate network[edit]

CBTK was previously repeated on CBYK-FM Kamloops and on 22 CBC radio repeaters in the Thompson and Cariboo regions. On October 28, 2011, the CBC filed an application with the CRTC to convert CBYK-FM from a rebradcaster of CBTK-FM to an anchor of a new regional CBC Radio One network, the CRTC approved the new regional network on March 30, 2012,[13] with a start-up date slated for October 9, 2012.[14][15]

CBUC-FM in Salmon Arm, which was originally to have been part of the new network, will remain a repeater of CBTK-FM, following interventions from various parties, including the City of Salmon Arm, that the region is more economically-tied with the Okanagan region than with Kamloops.[13]

Shortly after CBYK-FM's launch as a separate station, residents of Revelstoke complained to the CRTC that they were not consulted by the CBC when they switched their local repeater, CBTO-FM 91.3, to CBYK-FM's programming; e-mails made to the city's mayor's office show that 80% of listeners prefer programming from Kelowna, while only 20% prefer the new Kamloops programming. The CRTC later said that it is up to the CBC to decide which programming originates for CBTO-FM, not the CRTC, after city officials contacted the CBC, BC spokesperson Lorna Haeber said that the CBC would make a decision on the issue "shortly", but failed to elaborate how or when the decision will be made.[16] The CRTC subsequently issued a notice that it had approved an application by the CBC to change the local programming source of its Radio One transmitter in Revelstoke from Kamloops back to Kelowna,[17] the change was implemented on January 2, 2014.[18]
