The news release is posted on Milkman. CHFM appears to be the new brand going forward.

Branding is more important now than ever... have been using the g home voice device..

`hey google listen rock 101 vancouver' gets me a connection as dpes `hey google listen LG 1043 vancouver' but I haven't been able to get Jack or Jack FM to come up. It works for Bob FM etc.

If you are unaware of this device. Google has the details. You need an account to use it. It needs an Android cell phone or tablet to set up. It works with Chromecast for video. Some 4K tv models have it built in.

To add to the above, it won't connect to CBC radio vancouver. This is perhaps a provider issue, rather than the device being dumb :) lol

It is amazing, in what it can do, and will do in the future.

More on the home voice device and CBC.

Using `listen CBC radio one' or listen CBC radio two' will connect. Include the hey google etc.I was not specific in the previous effort. This same command sequence can work for stations in other countries. A station in Dublin that I like is `listen radio nova ireland'. This station was highlighting the new U2 album.

From this morning's Broadcast Dialogue:

Lori Gibbs will join the 95.9 CHFM Calgary morning show Mookie, Billie Jo & Lori permanently as of Jan. 8. Gibbs had been covering co-host Billie Jo’s maternity leave.

For corporate radio's bigger brains, re-branding is no more than a make-work project.
These superficial machinations are supposed to generate what, specifically?
Still, I suppose looking busy is one way of justifying six-figure wages.
These boys and girls have been rendered as stagnant - neutralized and neutered.
This has been the case for so long, many of them may have no experience in any other scenario or working reality.
They certainly aren't looking for or finding, never mind implementing any alternatives.
