WELCOME TO CHANNEL 1 RADIO
In the summer of 2005, Interlake Broadcast Group started Manitoba’s first ever full-time Internet-Only radio station. Over a period of 10 years, BIG FM dot CA attracted more than 900,000 dedicated, loyal listeners. In the summer of 2018, let the fun begin all over again! Brandon’s exclusive Internet-only radio station has arrived.
CHANNEL 1 Format:
Having nation-wide listenership and popularity for eight consecutive years, the Light Rock/Adult Contemporary (Rock/AC) format delivers bright Pop and Rock hits spanning three decades. Musically, the format is regarded as “adult and office friendly”, it’s pop and rock hit songs without the rough edges. This sound is best described similar to “The Blend” channel on SiriusXM radio. You’ll hear a great mix of rock icons the likes of; Fleetwood Mac, Chicago, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, U2, Rod Stewart, and Elton John. You’ll also hear the popular stars of today, the likes of; Rob Thomas & Matchbox 20, Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheeran, Adele, Train, and Maroon 5.
The lead announcer on CHANNEL 1 is one of Brandon’s best-remembered and most widely recognized radio personalities. “The Workday with Ray Walker” will air weekdays beginning at 9am. Ray will celebrate 30 years in broadcasting this year, a career that began right here in Brandon at CKX in the fall of 1988.
