C-FAX 1070 Info

C-FAX 1070, "Victoria's News Authority" is the market's only news/talk radio station. Starting on-air on September 5, 1959, this AM station is now the second highest rated news/talk radio station in B.C. When C-FAX first hit the airwaves in 1959, it could be found on the AM dial at 810 ... See more and sounded quite different compared to today. Originally C-FAX was "your good music station" owned by Ellison Queale and Roy Parrot who had no prior experience running a radio station; they were suppliers, supplying electronic radio equipment around Victoria. C-FAX 810 AM had a frequency of 810, with power of 1,000 watts and was daytime only licensing which meant it was heard from sunrise to sunset and signed off at nightfall so a San Francisco-based station could be heard throughout Western North America. Charlie White and Art Phillips were the second owners of C-FAX 810 until 1963 when Clare Copeland and Charlie Smith bought C-FAX and moved the frequency to 1070 AM. In the hand of the third owners, C-FAX 1070 gained 24 hour licensing, had 10, 000 watts and could now reach parts of Vancouver, Port Angeles and Duncan. The "more music, less talk" station was playing artists such as Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby with news every hour on the hour. C-FAX 1070 was finally being recognized, receiving the #1 listened to station for two years in a row. The last independent sale was in 1974 to Mel Cooper who was recently named the British Columbia Association of Broadcasters' Broadcast Performer of the Year. Mel changed C-FAX 1070 to a "talk radio" station and in 1980 moved the studios from the Central Building to 825 Broughton Street. Now, Victoria wakes up with host Al Ferraby, followed by Joe Easingwood, Murray Langdon, The Lunch Bunch, Dave Dickson and Adam Stirling as well as ongoing local, national and international news and sports coverage. On weekends, programs include a variety of live local and network talk shows focusing on local history, pets, health, home repairs, finance, news, travel, computers and more. C-FAX 1070 has received numerous awards recognizing the stations' constant local coverage, community service and strong leadership. On top of great programming, C-FAX 1070 is well known in Victoria for its on-air celebrities, community spirit and charity involvement. This level of commitment has earned C-FAX 1070 Victoria's first "Lifetime Achievement Award" from the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce in 2002. In Fall 2004, CHUM Radio bought C-FAX 1070 and its sister station CHBE. In 2007, CTVglobemedia bought CHUM Limited. In early 2008, C-FAX 1070 moved into the CTVglobemedia building at 1420 Broad St
