History

CJIB Radio was the first radio station to broadcast out of Vernon BC, premiering on September 22nd 1947. It was founded by brothers Edward and Bernard Schroter under the name Interior Broadcasters, and had its original studio located on the south shore of Swan Lake in the old Crowne and McCubbin brokerage office. In the early years the programming on the station was varied – they broadcast 6 news casts per day, sports coverage, teen programs, music, and Sunday church services. By 1959 the station had moved to Barnard (30th) Avenue, and in 1961 it was sold to Selkirk Broadcasters. Over the years the station became very involved in the Vernon community, hosting many community events and fundraisers. By the time the station celebrated its 35th Anniversary in 1982 it had grown to 33 staff members from an original 9. In 1989 it was sold once again to Rogers Broadcasting Ltd, and in 2001 the station switched from AM to become 107.5 Kiss FM. The station is now located at 3313 32nd Avenue, and broadcasts music and local news.
