Montreal English talk station to switched to Greatest Hits
The English-language radio station 940 Montreal (CINW) has changed from talk radio to a Greatest Hits music format on 14 June. Corus Quebec says it plans to give the dial position a new voice to help maintain radio diversity in Montreal.
“We have spent years building a strong team that developed strong content for the 940 Montreal listeners. Unfortunately, continued disappointing ratings have sent us the clear message from our listeners that a format change was required” said Mario Cecchini, Vice President, Montreal and Quebec Regions. “We will continue to keep two news journalists at 940 Montreal open and look forward to serving our audiences with the new format.”
The company confirmed that 18 people were affected by the format change.
