CBC today announced the return of radio programming from Kelowna to the city of Revelstoke January 2, 2014.
“We have heard the voices and passion of loyal CBC Radio listeners in Revelstoke loud and clear,” says Johnny Michel, senior managing director of CBC British Columbia and Alberta. “The move back to Kelowna’s programming to Revelstoke just reinforces CBC’s commitment to provide the most relevant content for our many communities.”
Revelstoke was one of the cities in the established listening area for CBC Kamloops, a new radio and digital bureau that opened September 2012 as part of CBC/Radio-Canada’s 5-year strategy 2015: Everyone, Every Way. CBC Kamloops launched a new morning show, Daybreak Kamloops, with host Shelley Joyce as part of the new service.
CBC British Columbia responded to residents’ call for a change back to the original programming content they received from CBC Kelowna, including morning show Daybreak South with host Chris Walker. An online poll was created for the residents of Revelstoke who voted to move back to the Kelowna programming.
The CRTC approved the change to CBC’s broadcasting license in the area affirmatively on December 11, 2013.
Both Daybreak in Kamloops and Kelowna were ranked #1 in their markets in the Fall 2013 BBM Survey.
