Ottawa has a new radio station.
Corus Entertainment on Monday morning completed the rebranding of its 106.9 FM station, which is officially known as CKQB FM, with a new branding and format.
The station, which played rock music as The Bear until March 6, began broadcasting under the name Jump! on Monday morning.
With the new branding, the station has also switched formats. It now focuses on top 40 hits.
The new format will put the station in direct competition with Ottawa’s other top 40 station, Hot 89.9 FM. Also known as CIHT FM, it was Ottawa’s second most popular radio station and most popular music station during the fall ratings period.
