Media Monday Edmonton: Update #96

Here’s my latest update on local media stuff:

  • Harvard Broadcasting announced a new format and brand for CKEA-FM, switching from Lite 95.7 to 95.7 CRUZ FM. Their gimmick is that they guarantee no repeat songs all day long, and they’ll pay $10,000 if you catch them breaking the rule. Here’s how the press release introduced the new format:

“95.7 CRUZ FM is playing Great Music, ALL the time! Whether it’s Classic Rock, Classic Hits, Mainstream Rock, Pop, Pop/ Rock or New Wave from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s……music that was popular when you were!”
