In 1974, CKWX Vancouver became "CKWX Supercountry", adopting a Country music format. One-time CFUN Good Guy Tom Peacock became Program Manager. Another CFUN Good Guy, Red Robinson, had returned to the station in 1971. This marked Red's third and longest stay at the station, doing mornings for 12 years, while building and managing his advertising firm.

In 2000, CHET-TV Chetwynd (B.C.) was officially launched by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. Although a former broadcaster herself, she merely cut the ribbon to open the station's studios. Normal broadcasting did not get underway until August. CHET-TV had originally been licensed on September 24, 1997, with 100 watts on Channel 55, with a 5 watt rebroadcaster on Channel 33 in Hasler Flats.
