Evanov To Breeze In Winnipeg

FM 106 The Breeze Jewel Winnipeg 106.1 Evanov Clear

Update 5/19: 106.1 won’t be Evanov’s only property in Winnipeg after it launches. The company today announced the purchase of Multicultural 810 CKJS and Classic Rock “100.7 K-Rock” CHNK from Newcap Radio for $5.5 Million.

The press release also gives a sign-on date for 106.1 at some point this summer.

Original Report 5/16: Just as word comes of the NHL possibly returning to town, Evanov Radio Group is making moves for its upcoming launch of 106.1 CFJL Winnipeg.

While early expectations were that the station would be the next link in Evanov’s “Jewel” Soft AC chain, a pair of domain registrations hint at a different identity for the upcoming station. FM106Winnipeg.com is live and already pointing to Evanov’s corporate site, while recently adding 106TheBreeze.com as what looks to be the future branding of the station.

Evanov had registered 106TheJewel.com and TheJewel106.com in October 2008 when it first applied for the station. No word on when the station will debut.
