History of CJ Radio 1150
After the Soo Line Broadcasting Company Ltd. submitted an application to use the frequency of 1280 kHz, CJSL started as a satellite station of Weyburn’s CFSL. CJSL officially became Estevan’s first radio station when it went on the air in August 1961 with a strength of 1,000 watts. CJSL applied to the CRTC in 1977 to increase full-time power from 1,000 to 10,000 watts. The CRTC gave its general approval to the increase, but it put off making a final decision.
Currently, Streaming for this station is not available.
Due to CJME Regina, which at the time broadcast at a frequency of 1300 kHz, the decision was still waiting. After reaching a deal with CJME, it approved the power increase in 1978. The station changed its name to Super Country CJSL in the 1980s. CJSL and CFSL were sold to Frontier City Broadcasting Company in 1995; this company is now known as Golden West Broadcasting. The station dropped the “Super Country” brand, adopted the slogan “Today’s best country, and your all-time favorites,” and became CJ 1280. The CRTC permitted Golden West Broadcasting on May 28 to change CJSL’s frequency to 1150 kHz. CJSL transferred to its present frequency of 1150 kHz in November 2014.
