Kool Christmas Stunt In Kitchener ON

Bell 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.
