RADIO SHAKEUP: Jack FM cancelled — 1310 News, Country 101.1 taking up new frequencies on radio dial
Ottawa radio listeners might want to take some notes before they next flick on the dial: 1310 News has made the jump to FM and has been rebranded as CityNews, Country 101.1 has a new frequency, and Jack 92.3 has “hit the road,” for good.
All three stations are owned by Rogers Sports & Media. In a tweet, 1310 News announced its name change and new frequency, CityNews 101.1 FM, promising “clearer and better sound quality.”
The former occupier of that location on the dial, Country 101.1, has moved and become Country 92.3.
Jack 92.3, which offered music from a mix of genres, “is signing off in Ottawa and The Valley,” according to the station’s Facebook page. Listeners were directed to its brother station, Jack 102.3 in London, available in Ottawa online or through the station’s app.
