Stingray has officially announced that it will flip both Vancouver’s CHLG and Edmonton’s CKRA on the 26th (Boxing Day). There apparently won’t be any airstaff changes in Vancouver, while Edmonton will have maybe a couple.
There’s a Breeze vs. Jewel battle brewing in Halifax: Over the past few days, there were rumblings that Evanov was going to bring its Jewel brand to Halifax, via a flip of CKHY. And, when Stingray announced earlier today that it would launch a local Breeze outlet later this week (via a flip of CKUL), Evanov decided to make its move immediately. The on-air lineup at CKUL may be unchanged, but there have indeed been changes at CKHY (which makes sense because the latter flipped from Rock).
