Kool Christmas Stunt In Kitchener ON

Kool 105.3 Kitchener Waterloo Virgin RadioBell Media Hot AC “105.3 Kool-FM” CFCA-FM Kitchener ON is stunting on the way to a new format.

CFCA is currently stunting with Christmas Music until Friday, July 29 at 12:00pm when it will debut its new format. At this point we’re expecting the station to become Bell’s eight “Virgin Radio” CHR as 1053VirginRadio.com and .ca were registered anonymously by Bell’s registrar in June.

CFCA-FM placed fourth in the Kitchener-Waterloo market in the Spring 2016 Numeris ratings with a 7.6 share. A move to CHR would place the station up against Corus’ “91.5 The Beat” CKBT-FM, which ranked third with an 8.3 share.

With the upcoming change in format afternoon host Andrew Gerrior has exited the station.

  1. Wonder if someone is able to grab the flip on Friday, as the streaming has been shut off down South.

    • I’ll be recording the flip over via my SDR soon. I will upload it to soundcloud, if you’d like.

  2. A new post over at CRN says that the same thing may happen to CJCH in Halifax–although there may not be any stunting going on. (Noon in Kitchener would be 1:00 p.m. in Halifax, so it’d make sense.)
