In 1977, CHUM reached an agreement where it would acquire 67.2% of CITY-TV Toronto. And hold an addition 21.9% by way of a pledge. It was another year before the CRTC approved the transfer of control through a complex set of transactions.

In 1995, the CRTC approved the sale of CKDA and CFMS-FM Victoria. Founder David M. Armstrong had died on April 22, 1985, his widow inherited the stations, and sold 25% to Chuck Camroux in 1987. On September 1, 1995, CKDA was sold to O.K. Radio Group, who already owned CKKQ-FM. CFMS was sold to Rogers, who already owned CJVI-AM. CKDA left the air almost immediately after the sale, returning October 10th as CKXM from a new transmitter on its existing Chatham Island site, and with a Country format.
